There were 30 NFL teams represented at Missouri Western State’s pro day on March 21, when five players from Missouri Western State and 18 other players from 10 different area small schools worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Those area small schools with players at the pro day were Central Methodist, Central Missouri, Lincoln University, Missouri Southern State, Missouri Valley College, Missouri University of Science and Technology, Northwest Missouri State, Southeast Missouri State, Southwest Baptist and Truman State.
Reggie Jordan, tight end from Missouri Western State (6-foot-3 1/4, 239 pounds) — Jordan ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 seconds on both attempts. He had a 30-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-7 broad jump. He stood on his short shuttle, three-cone and bench press numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the three-cone drill and short shuttle). He did well in the position drills. He might not be big enough to play tight end in the NFL, and seems to be more of an H-back type player. Jordan is a likely seventh-round draft pick or priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
Twins from Northwest Missouri State worked out at the pro day.
Brandon Dixon, CB (5-11, 200) — Brandon Dixon was at the combine and stood on his numbers in the 40, short shuttle and three-cone from the event (he had the fifth-fastest 40 time among cornerbacks in Indianapolis). Dixon had a 34-inch vertical and 10-foot broad jump. Brandon Dixon is a possible seventh-round draft pick or priority free-agent pickup.
Brian Dixon, CB (5-11 3/4, 196) — Brian Dixon ran the 40 in 4.41 and 4.43 seconds. He had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-4 broad jump. he did the short shuttle in 4.56 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.08 seconds. Brian Dixon, who has 32 5/8-inch arms, performed 14 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Brian Dixon is a possible priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
