Last year, the Colts drafted little-known BYU WR Austin Collie in the fourth round of the NFL Draft and Collie rewarded them with 60 receptions, 676 yards and seven touchdowns.
A player in this year’s draft often compared to Collie — UNLV WR Ryan Wolfe (6-foot-1, 198 pounds) — experienced a setback at the school’s pro day March 25. Wolfe ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds but pulled his left hamstring in the process. But not before he record a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump and 15 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.
Here are a couple of other noteable players who worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in front of 20 teams on a very windy day.
LB Jason Beauchamp (6-2 7/8, 239) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 seconds against the wind and 4.84 with the wind. He posted a 4.44 short shuttle and 28 bench press reps.
OL Joe Hawly (6-3 1/8, 295) recorded a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot, 11-inch broad jump.
