Kansas State kicks off pro day season

Pro day season kicked off Wednesday at Kansas State, where 16 seniors worked out indoors on field turf in front of scouts from 12 NFL teams.

Kansas State coach Bill Snyder ran a highly-organized event and was nice enough to let all the scouts on hand get a look at the entire Wildcat junior class, who were timed, weighed and measured just like the seniors. That helps scouts because they can find out how fast and tall these guys are and get a head start on grading the players in next year’s draft class.

Among the highlights from the seniors:

DL Jeffrey Fitzgerald (6-foot-3 5/8, 270 pounds) ran a 4.83 and 4.84 40-yard dash, a 4.31 short shuttle and a 7.25 three-cone drill. He posted a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump and 21 bench press reps.

DL Daniel Calvin (6-2 3/4, 310) ran a 5.39 and 5.30 40-yard dash to go with a 8.24 three-cone drill. He posted a 29-inch vertical jump, 8-1 broad jump and 21 bench press reps.

DB Joshua Moore, who was at the NFL Scouting Combine, had 40-yard dash times of 4.55 and 4.50.

Among those who didn’t work out Wednesday were TE Jeron Mastrud (ankle injury) and OL Nick Stringer. Both players will work out for scouts on March 29. WR/KR Brandon Banks, who was at the combine, was a no-show. He intends to be at North Carolina’s pro day on March 23.
