Montana held its pro day Monday outdoors on FieldTurf with 10 teams present to watch the seven players who worked out.
No doubt, DB James Wilson has the athletic talent to be an NFL player. Wilson (5-foot-11, 193 pounds) ran 4.52 and 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.28 in the short shuttle and 6.83 in the 3-cone drill. He also had a 9-11 broad jump and a 35-inch vertical to go along with 19 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.
Now, he had a very good workout. But Wilson was jailed for two years until he was acquitted of murder in a 2007 shooting, which will probably keep him from being drafted. So if he gets a chance as an undrafted free agent, his success will depend on his ability to stay out of trouble.
Others who worked out:
RB Chase Reynolds (5-11 ¼, 201) — He ran 4.61 and 4.59 40s, a 4.26 short shuttle and a 6.78 3-cone drill. He had a 36-inch vertical, a 9-6 broad jump and did eight bench-press repetitions. He’s pretty good for a product of eight-man football in high school.
Gary Wagner (6-1, 194), a QB out of Carroll College, ran 4.74 and 4.79 40s. He had a 9-5 broad jump and 31-inch vertical. Wagner also posted a 4.31 short shuttle and 6.88 3-cone drill. He really threw the ball well.
