Rain didn’t stop Eastern Washington from holding its pro day March 12, though the event was moved to Gonzaga Prep High School where 15 players — 10 from Eastern Washington and five from Central Washington — worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.

Among the highlights were:

Eastern Washington QB Matt Nichols (6-foot-1 7/8, 219 pounds) worked out for about 30 minutes, throwing the ball to teammate TE Nathan Overbay (6-4 3/4, 259).

Nichols ran a 4.88-second 40-yard dash with the wind and 4.92 against the wind. He had a 28.5-inch vertical jump, 8-foot, 9-inch broad jump, 4.18 short shuttle and a 7.11 three-cone drill.

Overbay ran a 4.74 with the wind and a 4.83 against the wind. He had a 30.5-inch vertical jump, 8-11broad jump, 4.39 short shuttle, 7.18 three-cone drill and 19 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.

The highlight among Central Washington’s players was WR Johnny Spevak (6-2 3/8, 210), who looked good catching the ball in positional drills and ran a 4.60 40-yard dash with the wind and a 4.76 against the wind. Spevak posted a 29.5-inch vertical jump, 9-2 broad jump, 4.39 short shuttle, 6.97 three-cone drill and 13 bench press reps.
