Representatives from 24 NFL teams — including Jacksonville Jaguars linebackers coach Robert Saleh — were present for Kentucky’s pro day on March 14, when 15 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Avery Williamson, LB (6-foot 3/4, 244 pounds) — Williamson stood on his times and jump distances from the NFL Scouting Combine. At Kentucky’s pro day, he did 15 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press.
Williamson went through the position drills, and it doesn’t look like he can be an outside linebacker in the NFL. He is better suited to play inside linebacker in a 4-3 type of defense. He figures to be late-round draft pick, selected in the sixth or seventh rounds.
