There were 21 NFL teams represented — a contingent that included a defensive line coach from the Philadelphia Eagles — at Syracuse’s pro day on Wednesday, when 12 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Jason Bromley, DT (6-foot-3 3/8, 307 pounds) — Bromely ran the 40-yard dash in 4.97 and 4.98 seconds. He did the three-cone drill in 7.88 seconds, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Bromley is a very good athlete who moves around really well, but does have a tendancy to play a bit too upright. He is probably a fifth- to sixth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
Jerome Smith, RB (5-10 3/8, 226) — Smith ran the 40 in 4.74 and 4.71 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.60 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.27 seconds. He also performed 17 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Smith moves well and is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield. He could be a late-round draft choice or priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
Marquis Spruill, LB (6-1 1/8, 231) — Spruill ran the 40 in 4.59 seconds on both attempts. He had a short shuttle time of 4.44 seconds and a three-cone time of 7.33 seconds. He had a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He had 21 strength lifts. Spruill is a priority free-agent possibility following the draft.
