TCU shows how far it has come at pro day

UNLV TCU FootballIt wasn’t long ago that TCU was a football program with few draft prospects, poor facilities and little interest from NFL scouts on its pro day. Things have changed dramatically in short order.

The Horned Frogs are coming off their best season ever, a 12-1 finish that included their first BCS appearance (Fiesta Bowl), a No. 6 ranking and coach of the year honors for Gary Patterson.

The 24 teams that showed up for Friday’s pro day had no trouble noticing the difference: TCU now boasts state-of-the-art facilities and many more NFL-caliber football prospects, led this year by LB’s Jerry Hughes and Daryl Washington. And while TCU officials did their best to accommodate all the NFL personnel on hand so that they can best scout the Horned Frogs’ prospects, they took the extra measure of making scouts a DVD of the day’s workouts that took place indoors (the facility that next year’s Super Bowl representative from the AFC will use for practice) on FieldTurf.

Hughes (6-foot-2 ¼, 254 pounds) did position drills only, and looked smooth and athletic doing them. He stood by his combine numbers.

Washington (6-2, 229) ran 4.54 seconds twice in the 40-yard dash, ran 7.06 seconds in the three-cone drill, and did all the position drills. He stood by everything else at the combine.

Marshall Newhouse (6-4, 322), OT, did position drills and stood on everything at the combine.

Clint Gresham (6-3, 238), long snapper, ran 5.13 and 5.11 in the 40 and did 12 bench presses. He may be one of the best deep snappers to emerge out of college football in the last 10 years. He is accurate and snaps with a lot of velocity.

Nic Richmond (6-8, 309), OT, who is a backup to Newhouse, ran 5.35 and 5.30 40s, had a 28-inch vertical, 8-6 broad jump, 4.86 short shuttle, 8.11 three-cone drill, and did 18 bench presses.

Rafael Priest (5-9 ¾ , 183), CB, had a foot injury and couldn’t run. But he had a 28 ½-inch vertical and 9-7 broad jump.
