Representatives from 18 NFL teams — including Indianapolis Colts running backs coach David Walker — were present for Toledo’s pro day. A total of 10 Rockets players, plus seven other athletes from small colleges in the area, worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Toledo had one player at the NFL Scouting Combine, running back David Fluellen. Fluellen (5-foot-10 3/4, 219 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 and 4.69 seconds. He did the short shuttle in 4.21 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.90 seconds. He performed 16 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He had a 38-inch vertical jump, but kept his broad jump number (10-foot-0) from the combine. Fluellen — a two-time first-team All-MAC selection — is a good running back, but because there are so many good running backs in the 2014 NFL Draft class, some are going to get passed over. If Fluellen is selected, it’ll be in the late rounds. Or, he’ll be a priority free-agent pickup following the event.
Terrance Owens, QB (6-3 1/2, 212) — Owens ran the 40 in 4.79 and 4.82 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-11 broad jump. He did the three-cone in 7.13 seconds and the short shuttle in 4.40 seconds. He has 9 3/8-inch hands. Owens was selected by the San Diego Padres — No. 1,215 overall — in the 2012 MLB First-Year Player Draft as a left-handed pitcher. Owens had a good day throwing the ball at the pro day. He had only one incompletion, and that came on a deep out on the last throw of the workout.
Bernard Reedy, WR (5-7 3/4, 173) — Reedy ran the 40 in 4.52 and 4.54 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10-0 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.07 seconds and the three-cone in 6.84 seconds. He had 16 reps on the bench. Reedy is a priority free-agent possibility.
