The weather was crisp — about 35 degrees — for Richmond’s outdoor pro day on March 19. Scouts from 20 NFL teams braved the cold to watch seven players work out. Nobody there that had gone to combine, but there were three players of note:
Kevin Finney TE (6-5¾”, 243 pounds) — Finney ran a 4.93 and 4.99, did a 30-inch vertical, a 9-foot-2 broad jump, 4.56 short shuttle and 7.49 three-cone. he did no bench presses and no positional workout.
Kendall Gaskins FB (6″, 226 pounds) — Gaskins ran 4.70 and 4.76, did 34 in the vertical, 9-foot-10 in the broad jump, 4.49 in the short shuttle, 7.32 in the three-cone, 20 reps on the bench press, and did a positional workout.
Cooper Taylor S (6-4¾”, 228 pounds) — Taylor ran 4.58 and 4.49, did 36½” in the vertical, 10-foot-7 in the broad jump, 4.29 in the short-shuttle, 6.96 in the three-cone and 23 reps on the bench press.
The coaches worked Taylor out as a linebacker. His official position will be strong safety, but he’s one of those guys who could possibly bulk up and play outside linebacker. Reminiscent of Kam Chancellor of the Seattle Seahawks.
