Representatives from seven NFL teams — including Chicago Bears defensive line coach Paul Pasqualoni, Baltimore Ravens defensive line coach Clarence Brooks and Jacksonville Jaguars defensive line coach Todd Wash — were present for a workout by Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley on April 17. Easley missed most of the 2013 season with a torn ACL, and won’t be a full go until June. However, he did do position drills. Easley moved very well in those position drills and displayed good quickness. His best position in the NFL is at defensive end. Easley has visits scheduled with the Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams.
Representatives from 20 NFL teams — including the quarterback coaches from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints and St. Louis Rams, the head coach (Gus Bradley) and general manager (David Caldwell) of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and St. Louis Rams director of player personnel Taylor Morton — were present for Georgia’s pro day on Wednesday. Quarterback Aaron Murray (6-foot 1/2, 204 pounds) was the key participant, with the potential to build some serious pre-draft momentum possible with a solid workout. He was taking part in his first pre-draft workout following an ACL injury suffered in late November and was medically cleared to work out at Georgia’s pro day, but didn’t go through the runs or jumps. Murray — […]
Representatives from 17 NFL teams — including tight end coaches from the Arizona Cardinals, Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars — were present at McNeese State’s pro day on Monday, when eight players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf. The top attraction for those coaches was tight end Nic Jacobs (6-foot-5, 265 pounds), who was at the NFL Scouting Combine. Jacobs ran the 40-yard dash in 4.78 and 4.87 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-9 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.68 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.47 seconds. He hadn’t been in an offseason training program that is specific to preparing for a pro-day workout, so he didn’t run as well as he probably could. […]

All 32 NFL teams were represented at South Carolina’s pro day, including such dignitaries as the head coaches of the Houston Texans (Bill O’Brien) and Jacksonville Jaguars (Gus Bradley), as well as the general managers of the Jaguars (David Caldwell), Buffalo Bills (Doug Whaley) and Oakland Raiders (Reggie McKenzie). The very well-attended pro day was held Wednesday outdoors and run on grass inside Williams-Brice Stadium, which was opened up for fans to come and watch the workouts. Jadeveon Clowney, DE (6-foot-5 5/8, 266 pounds) — Clowney stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine (where he posted the top 40-yard dash time — 4.53 seconds — among defensive linemen), and looked very good in the positional drills. He moves […]
Three NFL teams — the Jacksonville Jaguars, New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles — sent linebackers coaches to North Alabama’s pro day on March 14, when 12 UNA players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf. The player those assistant coaches were on hand to see was linebacker (and special teams phenom) Tavarius Wilson. The 5-foot-11 1/8, 239-pound Wilson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.77 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.40 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.10 seconds. He performed 26 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Wilson — the 2013 Division II Defensive Player of the Year — is a potential seventh-round […]
Representatives from 24 NFL teams — including Jacksonville Jaguars linebackers coach Robert Saleh — were present for Kentucky’s pro day on March 14, when 15 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. Avery Williamson, LB (6-foot 3/4, 244 pounds) — Williamson stood on his times and jump distances from the NFL Scouting Combine. At Kentucky’s pro day, he did 15 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Williamson went through the position drills, and it doesn’t look like he can be an outside linebacker in the NFL. He is better suited to play inside linebacker in a 4-3 type of defense. He figures to be late-round draft pick, selected in the sixth or seventh rounds.

LOUISVILLE — Two potential first-round selections in the 2014 NFL Draft worked out at Louisville’s pro day Monday in front of representatives from 30 NFL teams — including the head coaches for the Houston Texans (Bill O’Brien), Jacksonville Jaguars (Gus Bradley), Oakland Raiders (Dennis Allen), Philadelphia Eagles (Chip Kelly) and Tennessee Titans (Ken Whisenhunt). In all, 15 Louisville players took part in the pro day, which was held indoors on FieldTurf. Projected first-rounders Teddy Bridgewater and Calvin Pryor were the main attractions for the approximately 100 NFL coaches and scouts on hand. Teddy Bridgewater, QB (6-foot-2, 208 pounds) — Bridgewater ran the 40-yard dash just once, doing so in 4.79 seconds. Bridgewater’s hands measured 9 1/4 inches. He stood on […]
Representatives from 12 NFL teams gathered at the Star Hill Family Athletic Center in Tolland, Conn. for the University of New Haven’s pro day. The noteworthy participant of the pro day — which was held indoors on FieldTurf — was the brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, UNH tight end Michael Flacco. Flacco (6-foot-4 5/8, 251 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.74 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 9-foot-7 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.21 seconds. He performed 14 reps of 225 on the bench press. He was not able to do the vertical jump because the facility did not have a standard. Flacco only played one season […]
