TCU pro day is in the books and I would say it was a success. Scouts and coaches from 26 NFL teams were in attendance including 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh, Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden, and Mean Joe Greene. Here are some of the highlights…
- Andy Dalton looked solid. He went through about 50 scripted throws and I didn’t see many bad balls from him, and each one was catchable. Dalton was much sharper than at the NFL Combine. You could tell he has been working on his deeper routes. Not only can Dalton throw, he showed off his catching abilities on a flea flicker.
- Jake Kirkpatrick who wasn’t invited to the NFL Combine for some reason went through most of the drills. Jake benched 225-25 times, had a 30.5” vertical, and a 5.31 40 time. He also participated in position drills.
- Jeremy Kerley improved his 40 time despite his hamstring being tight. Most of the scouts had him between 4.55 and 4.60. Kerley caught passes from Dalton and also fielded punts from Anson Kelton.
- Marcus Cannon stuck with most of his stats from the combine, but jumped 8’11” in the broad jump and went through position drills.
- A player who improved his draft stock drastically was Colin Jones. Jones might have been the star of the show. Jones put up 20 reps of 225, a 37” vertical, and a 4.31 40 time. Wow! The crazy thing is one scout had him at 4.25…
- Cornerback Jason Teague had a good showing. Teague worked out along with going through position drills. Jason did 14 reps of 225, had a 36” vertical, 10’4” broad jump, and around a 4.5 40 time.
- Another impressive player was Malcolm Williams. Williams ran a 4.47 40 which was nice, but not as impressive as his jumping ability. Williams had a 40” vertical and 10’8” broad jump.
Here is a video, audio, and a few pictures for you to check out. I will post more results later and I also have a short interview with former Frog Jerry Hughes.
