Default Re: Pro day workout updates

Northern Iowa (March 27)
There were 22 teams on hand for this indoor workout on turf. This was a great stop for the scouts. Two offensive line coaches George DeLeone (Miami) and Pat Flaherty (Giants) were present.

? OL Chad Rinehart (6-5 1/4, 311): Ran the 40 in 5.26 and 5.27, had a 29-inch veritcal jump, an 8-foot, 9-inch long jump, 4.57 short shuttle, 7.63 cone drill, ran positional workouts and kept bench results from the combine.

? OL Brandon Keith (6-5 1/8, 345): Ran the 40 in 5.00 and 4.98, had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 5-inch long jump, 4.84 short shuttle, 7.91 cone drill, did positional workouts and kept bench results from the combine.

Yale (March 27)
Three teams were on hand to see four Yale players and seven prospects from other area schools. Prospects worked out indoors on a rubber track…

? S Nick Solakan (6-2 7/8, 224): Ran the 40 in 4.62 and 4.61, had a 35-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 1-inch long jump, 4.38 short shuttle, 7.53 cone drill, 13 reps in the bench press, ran position workout (conducted by a Redskins scout).

LSU (March 26)
All 32 teams were on hand, with more than 100 NFL people in total. Among them were head coaches Herman Edwards and Mike Tomlin, plus front office execs Carl Peterson, Jerry Reese, Mickey Loomis, Billy Devaney, and Tony Softli. Prospects ran indoors on FieldTurf.

? DL Glenn Dorsey (6-1 ?, 297): Ran the 40 in 5.13 and 5.12, had a 25 ?-inch vertical jump, 8-foot, 4-inch long jump, 4.80 short shuttle, 7.52 cone drill, and ran position drills. Scouts like his long arms, which measured 35 ? inches. Former NFL player Tim Krumrie ran the workout and he has a reputation of running lineman pretty hard… but he couldn't break Dorsey, who looked very good.

? WR Early Doucet (6-0, 203): Ran the 40 in 4.59, 4.64 and 4.69, had a 34 ?-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 6-inch long jump, 4.45 short shuttle, 7.40 cone drill, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine. Had a very good workout.

? LB Arlington Highsmith (6-0, 221): Ran the 40 in 4.87, 4.72 and 4.70, had a 29-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 4-inch long jump, 7.34 cone drill, 23 reps in the bench press, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

? QB Matt Flynn (6-2, 229): Kept all numbers from the combine, ran position drills and looked very good throwing the ball.

? RB Jacob Hester (5-11 1/8, 225): Had a 29-inch vertical jump, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine. Caught the ball well in workouts.

? DB Jonathan Zenon (5-11 ?,, 185): Ran the 40 in 4.62 and 4.54, had a 37-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 6-inch long jump, 4.36 short shuttle, 6.85 cone drill, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine (but he did not do the bench press in Indianapolis due to an injury.)

? S Craig Steltz (6-1 3/8, 210): Ran the 40 in 4.60 and 4.65, had a 35-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 10-inch long jump, 4.19 short shuttle, 7.03 cone drill, had 10 reps in the bench press and could have done more but he injured his right shoulder. He did not work out at the combine, so there are no other numbers for him.

? CB Chevis Jackson (6-0 1/8, 192): Ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.58, had a 40-inch vertical jump, 10-foot long jump, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

South Carolina (March 26)
Fifteen NFL teams sent representatives and there were RB coaches from Tampa Bay and Detroit. Nine players took part, running on the stadium field…

? RB Cory Boyd (6-1 1/8, 217): Had a 35?-inch vertical jump, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

? LB Casper Brinkley (6-2 1/8, 259): Ran the 40 in 4.86 and 4.80, had a 28?-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 4-inch long jump, 4.51 short shuttle, 7.68 cone drill, had 20 reps in the bench press, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

Connecticut (March 26)
Fifteen teams were on hand, including four defensive back coaches and John Dorsey of the Packers to watch five players work out indoors on FieldTurf. It was a new state-of-the-art indoor building -- one of the best anywhere.

? DB Tyvon Branch (5-11 7/8, 208): Had a 38-inch vertical jump, ran position drills and kept all his other times from the combine. Since 2004, only five defensive backs have weighed 200-plus pounds and run under 4.40 in the 40. Three were drafted in the first round and the other two were taken within the first three rounds. Four of the five are NFL starters (Bob Sanders, LaRon Landry, Michael Huff and DeAngelo Hall). Two teams (Jets, Bengals) have had private workouts with Branch and he has made trips to visit four teams (Bills, Browns, Dolphins and Chargers).

? OL Donald Thomas (6-3?, 307): Had a 29 ?-inch vertical jump, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

? LB Danny Lansanah (6-0?, 244): Ran the 40 in 4.72 and 4.73, had a 39-inch vertical jump, 10-foot long jump, 4.63 short shuttle, 7.17 cone drill, 22 reps in the bench press and ran position drills. He had a very good workout.

Rutgers (March 26)
Twenty two teams were on hand, including Jets general manager Terry Bradway. Eleven Rutgers prospects and 11 from other schools worked out indoors on bubble FieldTurf.

? RB Ray Rice (5-8, 199): Had a 39 ?-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 1-inch long jump, 4.17 short shuttle, did position drills (run by the Patriots) and kept everything else from the combine. He had a very good workout.

? OL Pedro Sosa (6-3 5/8, 300): Had his knee scoped last week so he did not work out. Lifted at the combine and did nothing else.

? OL Jeremy Zuttah (6-3 3/8, 308): Had a 31-inch vertical jump, ran position drills and kept everything else from the combine.

? K Jeremy Ito (5-10?, 183): Kicked 55-yard field goal and made nine-of-11 in the workout.

Missouri Southern (March 26)
The workout took place at LSU's pro day.

? RB Alley Broussard (6-0, 235): Ran the 40 in 4.75 and 4.75, had a 28 ?-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 1-inch long jump, 4.62 short shuttle, 7.15 cone drill, 21 reps in the bench press and did position drills.
