There were 21 NFL teams represented to see prospects work out indoors on FieldTurf at Ball State’s pro day on March 27. Among those prospects working out was Keith Wenning, who is probably the best quarterback prospect in this 2014 NFL Draft class that we haven’t heard anything about.
Wenning (6-foot-2 5/8, 223 pounds) has numerous workouts scheduled with NFL teams, including with the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots. Wenning — who stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine — is a two-time second-team All-MAC selection who threw for 4,148 yards, 35 touchdowns and 7 interceptions in 2013.
Willie Snead, WR (5-11 1/8, 197) — Snead — who has 10 1/8-inch hands — ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 and 4.59 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-11 broad jump. He had a short shuttle time of 4.38 seconds and did the three-cone drill in 7.18 seconds. Snead — who was at the combine — had an excellent pro-day workout.
Jamill Smith, WR (5-6 1/4, 152) — Smith ran the 40 in 4.51 and 4.54 seconds. He had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds and the three-cone in 7.17 seconds. He performed 18 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, which is outstanding for an athlete of his size. Smith is described as being as quick as a hiccup, and could be a free-agent pickup possibility for a team following the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft.
