RB Javon Ringer, DE Brandon Long create buzz at Michigan State

RB Javon Ringer (5-9 1/2, 203 pounds) and DE/LB Brandon Long (6-2 3/4, 254 pounds) turned in impressive showings at the Michigan State Pro Day on March 18.

The workout, which was attended by 35 NFL personnel men representing 24 teams to watch 14 players, was done indoors on FieldTurf. There were two running back coaches, two defensive backfield coaches and other position coaches in attendance. Scouts and personnel men were happy to be treated to a big breakfast at the event, which began at 11 a.m.

Ringer turned in one of the fastest times ever in the short-shuttle drill, doing it in 3.89 seconds. By comparison, the best time by a running back at the NFL combine was 4.08 seconds by Branden Ore of West Liberty State and Bernard Scott of Abilene Christian. The top short shuttle by any player at the combine was 3.96 seconds by Kevin Barnes of Maryland. Ringer ran a 4.11 at the combine.

Aside from the blazing short-shuttle time, Ringer ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 and 4.51 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.66 seconds. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine.

But Ringer might have been outdone by Long, who was the talk of the pro day. He posted 40 times of 4.61 and 4.63 seconds and had a 10-foot, 9-inch broad jump and a 37 1/2-inch vertical leap — all of which would’ve ranked near the top at the combine. He also had a 4.37 time in the short shuttle and a 6.88 in the three-cone drill, with 32 reps on the bench press.

Here are other notables from the pro day:

QB Brian Hoyer (6-1 7/8, 216 pounds) stood on all of his numbers from the combine.

S Otis Wiley (6-1, 212 pounds) ran times of 4.64 and 4.67 in the 40 with a 35 1/2-inch vertical and a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump. He had a 4.34 short shuttle and a 6.97 three-cone drill, with nine reps on the bench press.

OT Jesse Miller (6-6, 320 pounds) ran the 40 in 5.49 and 5.48 and had a 22-inch vertical leap and an 8-foot, 9-inch broad jump. He had a 4.85 short shuttle and a 7.81 three-cone drill, with 25 reps on the bench press.

Michigan Tech DB Robert Haynes (5-9 1/4, 189 pounds), who also participated in Grand Valley State’s pro day, ran the 40 in 4.36 and 4.40 and had a 35 1/2-inch vertical and a 10-foot, 5-inch broad jump. He had a 4.18 short shuttle and 26 reps on the bench.
