Looking for quickness? Keep an eye on Paschall

One of the key aspects of pro days for prospects is that it provides yet another chance to go through workout drills for scouts and improve on their times from the NFL Scouting Combine.

North Dakota State RB Pat Paschall (5-foot-11 5/8, 211 pounds) took advantage of his second opportunity by posting a spectacular time in the short shuttle. The shifty Paschall completed the drill in 4.15 seconds, an improvement from the 4.33 he had at the combine. His new time would have placed him fourth among all rushers in Indianapolis.

His 40-yard dash times weren’t too shabby, either, as he ran it in 4.59 and 4.57 seconds. He also had a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump, but kept his combine numbers in the vertical jump, three-cone drill and bench press.

OT Keith Buckman (6-5 1/8, 321) was the other noteworthy player who ran drills on March 9 in front of representatives from two NFL teams.

He worked out indoors on FieldTurf and ran a 5.45 and 5.53 in the 40-yard dash, a 4.70 short shuttle, a 7.95 three-cone drill, a 28-inch vertical jump, a 7-foot, 3-inch broad jump and did 24 bench press repetitions.
