Eastern Washington’s pro day interrupted by hail, snow

Representatives from 19 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held March 6 at Eastern Washington in Cheney, Wash., where seven players participated in a workout that was interrupted by weather.

The event was held outdoors, and was forced indoors following the running of the 40-yard dashes due to a winter storm that dumped hail and snow on the area. The shuttle runs and three-cone drills were run indoors.

Kyle Padron, QB (6-foot-3 1/4, 221 pounds) — Padron ran the 40 in 4.75 seconds with the wind and 4.85 against the wind. He had a 28-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-1 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.41 seconds and he had a 7.44-second three-cone drill. So scouts could see Padron throw to stationary targets, the field was cleared of snow.

Brandon Kaufman, WR (6-5 1/4, 215) — Kaufman ran the 40 in 4.58 seconds with the wind and 4.63 against the wind. He had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump. His short shuttle time was 4.55 seconds and the three-cone drill was done in 6.96 seconds. Kaufman was at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Since the wide receivers weren’t able to run routes outdoors due to the inclement weather situation, Washington State coach Mike Leach invited the players to work out at the Cougars’ pro day on March 7. Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel threw passes to the receivers.
