Washington State QB Jeff Tuel earns extended looks

Representatives from 10 NFL teams gathered at Washington State’s pro day on March 7, where nine players participated in a workout that was held indoors on FieldTurf.

Outside linebacker Travis Long — who was not invited to the NFL Scouting Combine — was the best prospect on hand for the pro day. Long (6-foot-3 3/4, 243 pounds) was unable to work out, however, due to an ACL surgery hed had on Nov. 21. As a senior, Long played the “Buck” end/linebacker hybrid position in the Cougars’ 3-4 base defense.

Wade Jacobson, OL (6-5 3/4, 303) — Jacobson ran the 40-yard dash in 5.08 and 5.09 seconds. He had a 7.60-second three-cone drill and a 4.30-second short shuttle. Jacobson lept 38 inches in the vertical jump and had a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He also had 22 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. This is the kind of player teams are looking for to populate a practice squad and allow to develop over time.

Jeff Tuel, QB (6-3, 218) — Tuel ran the 40 in 4.60 and 4.65 seconds. He had a 4.12-second short shuttle and a 6.90-second three-cone drill. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. Tuel had a great pro day, and I suspect that he will have a strong showing when he has a workout with the New England Patriots on March 22. Tuel will be joined by receiver Marquess Wilsonwho was at the combine — at that workout, which will be held at the University of Idaho. Tuel also has a two-day visit with the Buffalo Bills set up for April 8-9.
