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.
