Representatives from 29 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Michigan, where 14 players went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf.
Cleveland Browns wide receivers coach Scott Turner, San Diego Chargers wide receivers coach Fred Graves and Jacksonville Jaguars running backs coach Terry Richardson were among the notable NFL attendees.
Denard Robinson, WR (5-foot-10 3/8, 199 pounds) — Robinson was the only player from Michigan who participated at the NFL Scouting Combine. Robinson stood by his combine numbers (he did run an official time of 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash). At Michigan’s pro day, Robinson caught balls as a receiver, and did also worked out as a running back and return specialist. His best NFL position might be running back — even if he worked out at receiver at the combine and played quarterback while at Michigan — as he can really make things happen when the ball is in his hands.
It will be a coach’s choice in the NFL for where Robinson ultimately lines up. Whichever team Robinson winds up with him will need to have a plan in mind.
There were three notable players at Michigan’s pro day who were not at the combine.
Patrick Omameh, G (6-4 1/8, 303) — Omameh ran the 40 in 5.20 and 5.19 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-11 broad jump. He had a 4.65-second short shuttle and performed 22 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. He has 34-inch arms, which are long. Teams will take a closer look at this player, and he could wind up being a sixth- or seventh-round draft pick.
William Campbell, DT (6-4 5/8, 311) — Campbell ran the 40 in 5.22 and 5.15 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-11 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.71 seconds and three-cone time was 7.28 seconds. Campbell had 35 strength lifts of 225 pounds. In high school, Campbell was a three-year starter at offensive tackle and a two-year starter at defensive tackle for Cass Technical (Mich.) High School. There is a feeling that he might be a better offensive line prospect than defensive lineman in the NFL.
Jordan Kovacs, SS (5-10 5/8, 205) — Kovacs ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.64 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-2 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.18 seconds and he had a 6.70-second three-cone drill. He also performed 16 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Kovacs is a good rookie free agent possibility.
