Interesting pre-draft source :wink02:

The pro-day workout of former RedHawks quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was the attraction, and a half-dozen draft-eligible ex-teammates tried to catch some of the refracted attention.

Scouts or assistant coaches from nearly all 32 NFL teams made their way to Oxford. Two head coaches, Green Bay's Mike Sherman and the Giants' Tom Coughlin - along with Giants' general manager Ernie Accorsi and three of the club's scouts - were there, too.

Charting each of the players' moves with stopwatches and clipboards, scouts watched them lift weights, jump, sprint and run agility drills before congregating in Yager Stadium for the main event: Ben throws.

And Roethlisberger, a sure-fire top-five pick rated along with Mississippi's Eli Manning as one of the top two quarterbacks in the draft, did not disappoint.

He threw long and short, soft and hard, down the middle and toward the sideline - showing off his impressive arm and timing on the deep out pattern.

Roethlisberger ran 4.76 seconds in the 40-yard dash. And he clocked an 11.8 - considered fast for a quarterback - on a three-cone agility drill.
