OT Bryan Bulaga (6-foot-5 3/8, 316 pounds) may have been the headline at Iowa’s pro day on Monday, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t several other elite prospects on hand to work out indoors on FieldTurf.
Bulaga certainly did his part, nailing position drills and looking very impressive to the 27 team representatives on hand. But while he chose to stand on his workout numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, the other top players took part in the workouts, and often impressed.
TE Tony Moeaki (6-3 1/8, 245), who performed for tight end coaches from Baltimore and Cincinnati, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.68 and 4.70 seconds, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.46-second short shuttle, a 7.03 three-cone drill, 25 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds and looked really good in position drills. He could hear his name called sometime Friday, April 23 when rounds 2-3 unfold.
LB Pat Angerer (6-0, 234) ran 4.65 and 4.64 in the 40 (though he plays faster than his timed speed), had a 39-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot, 3-inch broad jump. He didn’t do position workouts, because he reinjured his groin.
LB A.J. Edds (6-3 1/4, 247) ran a 4.67 and 4.69 in the 40, had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.49 short shuttle, a 7.40 three-cone drill and 18 bench press reps.
OL Kyle Calloway (6-6 1/2, 323) ran a 5.53 and 5.57 in the 40 and did 24 bench press reps.
CB Amari Spievey (5-10 7/8, 199) ran a 4.53 and 4.59 in the 40, had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.35 short shuttle, a 6.90 three-cone drill and did six bench press reps.
The scouts love Iowa’s pro day which was run by Chris Doyle, the Hawkeyes’ strength coach. Doyle kept the agents out and fed visitors a big lunch before the event started.
