Two players shine at Southern Miss Pro Day

Despite the cold temperature and poor field conditions on March 22 at the University of Southern Mississippi’s pro day, two players emerged from a field of 18 to catch the eyes of scouts from 14 teams.

Running back Damion Fletcher (5-foot-9 1/8, 182 pounds) ran 4.69 and 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 38-inch vertical leap, 10-1 broad jump, 4.18 short shuttle, 7.16 three-cone drill, and completed eight bench press repetitions of 225 pounds.

Tight end Leroy Banks (6-3, 240) ran 4.66 and 4.71 in the 40, had a 37-inch vertical leap, 9-9 broad jump, 4.13 short shuttle, 6.94 three-cone drill, and did 16 bench press reps.

Both Fletcher and Banks put together good position workouts as well.
