Representatives from 18 NFL teams gathered at Arizona’s pro day, where 12 players worked out. The event was held outdoors and the players ran on natural grass. The entire offensive coaching staff of the Arizona Cardinals was on hand for the workout.
Matt Scott, QB (6-foot-2 5/8, 212 pounds) — Scott only got measured at the pro day, standing by his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine (he was a top performer among his position group in each event he competed in). After just one season in Rich Rodriguez’s spread attack, Scott has earned high praise from the veteran coach, who said that Scott is the best quarterback he’s had in 23 years of coaching. Scott throws a quick ball, and can heave quality passes without having his hands on the laces. He looked really good in the positional workout.
Mark Watley, FS (6-1 5/8, 190) — Watley was not a starter, rather a special teamer for the Wildcats. He ran the 40 in 4.44 and 4.47 seconds. He posted jumps of 38 1/2 inches in the vertical and 10-foot-6 in the broad jump. While posting a time of 4.33 seconds in the short shuttle, Watley pulled his hamstring and was unable to continue the workout. He is a likely rookie free-agent pickup following the 2013 NFL Draft.
