It was difficult for Alabama A&M prospects at the school’s pro day held on March 7, but a couple still managed to thrive.
The five players who worked out had to do so on a wet grass field outdoors — not ideal for trying to impress the 15 teams present at the pro day.
There were two standouts, neither of which was invited to the NFL Scouting Combine:
DT Frank Kearse (6-foot-4, 315 pounds) — He ran 5.30 and 5.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 30-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot-7 broad jump, and did 22 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds. He also posted 4.66 and 7.80 in the short shuttle and 3-cone drill, respectively. Scouts were impressed with him, and the Steelers’ Mark Gorscak worked out Kearse individually.
OL Anquez Jackson (6-3 ¾, 332) – He ran 5.30 and 5.38 in the 40, 5.29 in the short shuttle and 8.16 in the 3-cone drill. He also posted an 8-6 broad jump and 26-inch vertical and did 22 bench-press reps.
