O-line, DB coaches descend on Utah for pro days

Published on March 30, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

Defensive back Brandon Burton and a trio of linemen took center stage at Utah’s pro day on Tuesday.

Representatives from 20 NFL teams were present for the indoor sessions on FieldTurf. Four assistant coaches, including three offensive line coaches — Bill Callahan of the New York Jets, Dante Scarnecchia from the New England Patriots and Pat Ruel from the Seattle Seahawks — and Pittsburgh Steelers offensive assistant Harold Goodwin were in attendance.

Offensive lineman Zane Taylor (6-foot-2 1/2, 308 pounds) drew compliments from Callahan after his workout, and he displayed impressive strength and foot quickness in his testing. Taylor bench pressed 225 pounds 41 times and ran the 3-cone drill in 7.87 seconds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.45 seconds twice and had a vertical jump of 26 1/2 inches. He stood on the rest of his numbers from last month’s NFL Scouting Combine.

Fellow offensive lineman Caleb Schlauderaff (6-4 5/8, 302) re-tested his jumps, landing an 8-foot-6 broad jump and a 28-inch vertical, but stood on the rest of his combine numbers because he was battling a recurrence of a calf injury. He did participate in positional workouts.

On the other side of the line, DT Sealver Siliga (6-1 7/8, 314) re-ran the 40 in 5.37 and 5.35 seconds but stood on the rest of his combine numbers. He has 34 1/2-inch arms and scouts remarked that he has very good run-stopping abilities.

Burton (5-11 3/4, 188) re-ran his 40 (4.58, 4.50) and did a positional workout, but stood on the rest of his combine numbers. Burton also had a workout with Cleveland Browns defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson on Wednesday.

Two running backs drew attention, Matthew Asiata (5-11 3/8, 227) and Eddie Wide (5-10, 197).

Asiata excelled at catching the ball in workouts. He ran a 4.39 short shuttle and a 7.00 3-cone, but did not re-run his 40 because he said he had not been training for it. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

Wide, who was not invited to the combine, clocked 4.56 and 4.52 in the 40, 4.61 in the short shuttle and 7.03 in the 3-cone. He put up 16 bench press reps.

Utah State also held a second pro day on Monday, with five players participating indoors on FieldTurf

Defensive backs coach Emmitt Thomas from the Kansas City Chiefs and another from the Philadelphia Eagles were in attendance to watch CB Chris Randle (5-10 1/2, 191) go through a workout. Randle, who was not at the combine and didn’t work out at the Aggies’ March 11 pro day, had 40 times of 4.55 and 4.52 and a 37-inch vertical.
