At Fordham’s pro day workout, quarterback John Skelton may have stolen the show, but 27 other prospects from assorted schools also got a chance to work out in front of scouts from nine NFL teams. The workouts were held outdoors on FieldTurf, except the broad jump and vertical jumps, which were held inside the gym.
Offensive lineman Andrew Tyshovnytsky (6-foor-4 1/4, 317 pounds), from Fordham, ran 4.91 and 4.94 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 28-inch vertical leap, 9-2 broad jump, 4.83 short shuttle, 7.99 cone drill, and had 33 reps in the bench press. He looked good in his position drills.
Wide receiver Asa Lucas (5-10 3/4, 185), from Fordham, ran 4.69 and 4.69 in the 40, had a 34 1/2-inch vertical leap, a 9-5 broad jump and nine reps in the bench press.
Wide receiver Patrick Simonds (6-5 1/4, 221), from Colgate, ran 4.53 average from 2 runs in the 40, had a 34 1/2-inch vertical leap, a 10-2 broad jump, 4.26 short shuttle, 6.84 three-cone drill and 24 reps in the bench press.
