Representatives from 24 NFL teams — including Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin, and offensive line coaches from the Steelers, St. Louis Rams and Philadelphia Eagles — were on hand for Michigan’s pro day on Wednesday. There were 13 Wolverines players present, plus another five athletes from area small schools (including two from Saginaw Valley State).
Taylor Lewan, OT (6-foot-6 7/8, 312) — Lewan stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, which were excellent (he was a top performer in his position group in four drills). Lewan has very good movement and a lot of upside as an offensive tackle. He is going to be an excellent professional player, and a possibility to be a top-10 selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Michael Schofield, OT (6-6 1/4, 305) — Schofield registered a 25 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot broad jump at the pro day. Schofield, who has 33 7/8-inch arms, had a good workout despite a left hand bruise suffered at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.
Jeremy Gallon, WR (5-7 5/8, 182) — At the pro day, Gallon did the vertical (39 1/2 inches), broad jump (10-10), short shuttle (4.26 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.07 seconds), and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Gallon, who has 9 3/8-inch hands, looked very good catching the ball. He was receiving passes from Saginaw Valley State quarterback Jonathon Jennings, who was there because teammate Jeff Janis was at Michigan’s pro day.
Janis (6-2 7/8, 216), a wide receiver, stood on his numbers from the combine and caught the ball well during the workout.
