The 12 teams on hand for Missouri’s Pro Day Thursday were not only treated to a big lunch (something the scouts look forward to every year), but a first-hand glimpse at the Tigers’ most promising prospect, LB Sean Weatherspoon.
Weatherspoon (6-foot-1 1/4, 239 pounds), a senior, has a well-established reputation. But as well as he played at Missouri, he looked even better running drills Thursday, running a 4.53 and 4.52 40-yard dash and posting 35 bench press reps.
Among the highlights from the other six seniors that worked out for scouts Thursday:
DL Jaron Baston (6-0 1/2, 304) ran a 5.29 and 5.28 in the 40-yard dash. His best times in the short shuttle and three-cone drill were 4.70 and 7.73, respectively. Baston posted 26 bench press reps.
DL Brian Coulter (6-3 1/8, 251) ran a 5.02 and 5.03 in the 40-yard dash, 4.65 in the short shuttle, and 7.30 in the three-cone drill. Coulter posted a 9-foot, 2-inch broad jump, a 32-inch vertical and 15 bench press reps.
WR Danario Alexander did not work out due to a knee operation for an injury suffered in the Senior Bowl. It is not clear when Alexander will work out.
WR Jared Perry was present but did not to work out, instead choosing to keep all of his information from the combine.
