DB coaches from Colts, Eagles check out Deone Bucannon

Representatives from seven NFL teams — including defensive-back coaches from the Indianapolis Colts and Philadelphia Eagles — were present on March 13 for Washington State’s pro day, where nine players worked out indoors in the Cougars’ practice bubble.

Deone Bucannon, SS (6-foot 7/8, 211 pounds) — Bucannon stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, where he was a top performer in his position group in four categories. While he had a good on-field workout at the combine, he did have a couple of drops in pass coverage during WSU’s pro day. Bucannon is a strong tackler and experienced player having been a regular starter for three seasons for the Cougars.

Andrew Furney, kicker (5-11, 210) — Furney didn’t do any runs or jumps, just kicks. He’s described as a big-legged kid with tremendous power. He made several field goals of 60-plus yards at the pro day, and showed really good accuracy. Furney made 80 percent of his field-goal attempts in 2013, including making one of two from 50-plus yards. Furney could be a priority free-agent pickup following the 2014 NFL Draft.

Rico Forbes, OL (6-5, 300) — Forbes ran the 40-yard dash in 4.97 and 4.99 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical and 8-foot-5 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.66 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.71 seconds. Forbes, who has 33 3/4-inch arms, performed 31 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Forbes also could be a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.

Washington State is currently building a new football facility that will open this year and be as good of a facility as any in the country.
