Unfamiliar territory for South Dakota State

It’s not often that South Dakota State plays host to a large gathering of NFL scouts. With one draftable prospect and two others worthy of a look as rookie free agents, however, this year is different.

Ten team representatives showed up, and the South Dakota State hosts were ecstatic to see such a large crowd.

The workout was held indoors on a fast rubber track, while the posiiton drils took place on the basketball floor.

DE/LB Danny Batten (6-foot-2 7/8, 246 pounds) ran a 4.71 and 4.73 in the 40-yard dash, had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump, a 4.05-second short shuttle, a 7.32-second three-cone drill and 30 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.

OT Casey Knips (6-7 3/4, 306) ran 5.07 and 5.08 in the 40, had a 28-inch vertical jump, 8-8 broad jump, 4.70 short shuttle, 7.92 three-cone drill and did 28 bench press reps.

WR Glen Fox (6-2, 197) ran 4.45 and 4.45 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-10 broad jump, a 4.24 short shuttle, a 6.95 three-cone drill and 12 bench press reps.
