RB Tate shines in position drills at Auburn pro day

Six seniors at Auburn University worked out indoors on FieldTurf for scouts from 28 NFL teams.

Running back Ben Tate weighed in at 219 pounds. Tate was a top performer at the NFL Scouting combine in six events, so he stood on his results from Indianapolis and looked very good in position drills.

DE/OLB Antonio Coleman (6-1, 248) ran a 4.78 and 4.77 40-yard dash, had a 33.5-inch vertical leap, 9-foot, 8-inch broad jump, 4.46 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone drill and kept his bench press results from the combine.

Defensive back Walter McFadden (5-11, 181), who did not participate in the combine, ran a 4.40 and 4.43 40, had a 35.5 vertical leap, 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump, 4.31 short shuttle, 6.94 three-cone drill and completed five reps in the bench press.

Auburn’s pro day was well organized and ran quite smoothly. The organizers treated the scouts like royalty, setting up a fabulous BBQ lunch before the timing began.
