Kedrick Rhodes impresses at West Alabama’s pro day

There were representatives from eight NFL teams present at West Alabama’s pro day on March 12, when players ran outdoors on FieldTurf in 56-degree temperatures and 10-20 mile-per-hour wind gusts.

Kedrick Rhodes, S (5-foot-10 7/8, 203 pounds) — Rhodes had a really good pro day, as evidenced by his numbers in the workouts. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 and 4.60 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-5 broad jump. Rhodes ran the short shuttle in 4.11 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.70 seconds. He had 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Rhodes is a potential seventh-round draft choice or a priority free-agent possibility at the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Another West Alabama player — safety Demetruce McNeal (6-0 5/8, 190) — worked out at Auburn’s pro day on March 4 (McNeal played at Auburn from 2010-12 before transferring to West Alabama for the 2013 season). McNeal ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.56 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.33 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.02 seconds. He performed seven strength lifts. McNeal is a free-agent possibility for a team following the draft.
