Muhammad Wilkerson draws attention to Temple’s pro day

Published on March 22, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Muhammad Wilkerson was the headliner among 16 players who worked out at Temple’s pro day.

Wilkerson looked very good in position drills in front of defensive line coaches for the Bengals, Saints and Seahawks, who were among talent evaluators for 25 teams in attendance. He will also have a private workout for the Chiefs and the Ravens in the near future.

Wilkerson is about where most teams had pegged him a month ago as a late first-round, early second-round pick, between No. 30-40 overall. Players in that range tend to look similar during the evaluation process, so a good workout or a team taking a particular liking to a prospect can push him to the low end of that range. It’s a good sign for Wilkerson that he has two teams — a month away from the draft — who are coming to work him out personally.

Here’s a look at the numbers for the players who ran outdoors on FieldTurf in spikes (historically a bit faster):

Wilkerson (6-foot-4 1/8, 308 pounds) – He posted a 29-inch vertical and stayed with rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine.

ILB Elijah Joseph (6-1 1/8, 243) – He had 31 reps in the bench press, but is still unable to work out because he’s rehabbing a knee injury from last season. It will be three weeks until Joseph, who also attended the combine, will be able to run.

Jaiquawn Jarrett (6-1, 200) – He had a 30 1/2-inch vertical, did 17 reps on the bench press and stood on the rest of his numbers from combine. Jarrett also worked out for position coaches.

DL Elisha Joseph (6-2, 290) – He ran 5.0 and 5.06 in the 40-yard dash, jumped 28 in the vertical and 8-foot-7 in the broad jump, ran a 4.81-second short shuttle and 7.81 in the three-cone drill. He also did 43 bench press reps.

WR Mike Campbell (6-1 3/8, 203) – He ran 4.56 and 4.60 in the 40, with a 35 vertical, a 9-10 broad jump, 4.18 in the short shuttle and 6.96 in the three-cone drill. He did 20 reps in the bench press.
