Emory Blake, Jeff Blake’s son, gets his shot at Auburn pro day

Representatives from 15 NFL teams gathered at Auburn’s pro day on March 5. A total of 10 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf, and here are the highlights:

Emory Blake, WR (6-foot-0 3/4, 189 pounds) — The son of former NFL quarterback Jeff Blake ran the 40 in 4.61 and 4.62 seconds, had a 36 1/2 vertical and 10-0 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.42 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.01 seconds. Blake, who was not invited to the combine, is a possible rookie free-agent acquisition.

Philip Lutzenkirchen, TE (6-4, 260) — Lutzenkirchen ran the 40-yard dash in 4.98 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-4 broad jump. His time in the short shuttle time was 4.32 seconds and 7.05 seconds in the three-cone drill.

Onterio McCalebb, RB (5-10 1/4, 169) — McCalebb ran the 40 in 4.33 and 4.34 seconds, had a 37-inch vertical and 10-10 broad jump, had a 4.31-second short shuttle and 7.01-second three-cone drill, and did 10 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. The best shot for McCalebb at sticking in the NFL is as a return specialist. His size is an issue as far as durability is concerned at the running back position.

Corey Lemonier, DE (6-3, 255) — Lemonier stood on most of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine (he posted the third-best time for defensive linemen in the 40 — 4.60 seconds). He did do the vertical at Auburn’s pro day, jumping 34 inches. Lemonier did position drills led by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker coach Keith Butler.
