Jeremiah Attaochu to visit Lions, Chargers, Colts

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams were on hand for Georgia Tech’s pro day Friday, including Joe Cullen, the defensive line coach of the Buccaneers, as well as four linebacker coaches and a defensive backs coach. There were 12 players who worked out indoors on FieldTurf.

Jeremiah Attaochu, DE: Attaochu (6-foot-3 3/8, 249 pounds) did not work out at the combine because of an injury. At his pro day, he ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.62 seconds. He had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-3 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.68 and the three-cone drill in 7.28. His arms measured 34 1/2 inches, and he did not perform the bench press. Attaochu, who has the most sacks in Georgia Tech history, will be visited by the Lions, Chargers and Colts next week in Atlanta, and he’ll also go up to Philadelphia to visit the Eagles.

Jemea Thomas, CB: Thomas (5-9 1/4, 191 pounds), who was at the combine, had ran the 40 in 4.58 and 4.52 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical and a 10-2 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.25 and the three-cone drill in 7.03 seconds. He had a very good workout.
