Three potential free-agent pickups work out at EKU’s pro day

There were five NFL teams represented at Eastern Kentucky’s pro day on March 14, when nine players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in 25 mile-per-hour winds.

Ike Ariguzo, WR (6-foot-4 3/4, 235 pounds) — Ariguzo ran the 40-yard dash in 4.89 seconds (against the wind) and 4.61 seconds (with the wind). He had a 37-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-4 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.40 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.28 seconds. He had 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Ariguzo caught the ball well in positional workouts. He played wide receiver at Eastern Kentucky (he posted 256 yards receiving and five touchdowns in 2013), but a team might sign him as a rookie free agent and build him up a bit more to try him out at tight end.

Shawn Shupperd, DE (6-5 1/4, 280) — Shupperd ran the 40 in 5.08 seconds (against the wind) and 4.89 seconds (with the wind). He had a 34-inch vertical and 9-9 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.51 seconds and the three-cone in 7.14 seconds. He had 21 strength lifts. In addition to working out as a pass-rushing defensive end, Shupperd also worked out as a tight end at the pro day. He is a potential rookie free-agent pickup following the 2014 NFL Draft.

Jordan Berry, P (6-5 1/8, 211) — Berry is from Australia, and can punt rugby style (when the punter gets a running start before booting) or regularly. Berry will likely be in some team’s training camp as a rookie free agent.
