Western Michigan

There were 21 NFL teams represented at Tuesday’s pro day. With S Louis Delmas as the main attraction, there were defensive backfield coaches from Detroit, Jacksonville, Carolina and New Orleans. The Lions had DB coach Tim Walton and assist DB coach Deron Roberts on hand. The 15 prospects ran indoors on FieldTurf and did the vertical and long jumps in the weight room.

Delmas ran position drills as well as a 60-yard shuttle. Otherwise, he stood on his numbers from the combine.

Londen Fryar, a 5-foot-10 3/4, 195-pound CB, ran the 40 in 4.59 and 4.67 seconds, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-foot long jump, 4.28 short shuttle, 6.81 three-cone drill and 17 reps in the bench press.

Jamarko Simmons, a 6-1 3/4, 231-pound WR, ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.53 seconds, had a 33-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 11-inch long jump, 4.39 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone drill, and 19 reps in the bench press.

Central Washington

Central Washington’s contingent of two players at the combine doubled the number of players from the University of Miami (Fla.) at the combine — and they had one more NFL scout come to see them at pro day. Due to heavy snow, there was just one NFL scout on hand — the one who happened to get to town the night before! Prospects ran on an indoor rubber track with spikes (fast), and did drills on the basketball court.

Mike Reilly, a 6-3, 212-pound QB, ran the 40 in 4.74 and 4.75, had a 32 ½-inch vertical jump, and 9-foot long jump.

Jared Bronson, a 6-3 7/8, 254-pound TE, stood on his 40 times at the combine, had a 33-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 8-inch long jump, and 21 reps in the bench press.
