Two improve standing at Colorado State’s pro day

Two prospects improved their standing with NFL teams as Colorado State held a pro day on Wednesday, hosting the event indoors on FieldTurf.

Colorado State wide receiver Rashaun Greer and Fort Hays State defensive back C.J. Lovett each earned the attention of the six teams in attendance on hand to catch the performances of 13 Colorado State players and five others from various local colleges.

Greer (6-foot 1/2, 206 pounds), who did not participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 and 4.50 seconds, had a 34-inch vertical jump, 9-foot-9 1/2 broad jump, 4.37-second short shuttle, did the three-cone drill in 7.0 and did 18 lifts of 225 pounds in the bench press.

Lovett (5-11, 195), who played Division II college football for the Tigers, ran 4.56 and 4.60 in the 40, did a 34-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, ran the three-cone drill in 7.09 seconds and did 11 lifts on the bench press. None of those numbers would have placed him among the top performers at the combine.

Offensive lineman Shelley Smith, who attended the combine, stood by his numbers from Indianapolis and simply participated in position drills.

Offensive lineman Cole Pemberton (305 pounds), who was also at the combine, opted to go through exercises, running the 40 in 5.22 and 5.26, registering a 28-inch vertical jump and 8-foot-4 broad jump, running 4.74 in the short shuttle and 7.53 in the three-cone, and doing 23 lifts on the bench press.

Offensive lineman Adrian Martinez, who was not at the combine, did 37 lifts on the bench press.
