Pro Day Combine at FAU

March 4th, Friday. I think the time is check-in at 9:30AM. This is the last info I have on it as far as starting time.
If anyone have plans to attend please post results or observations.
This will give us a chance to see how FAU compares with the guys from the recently completed invitational NFL Combine in Indy.


Thanks

Pro Day Combine at FAU

A few players went to Miami's Pro Day yesterday. They feel pretty confident about seeing requirements first hand.
Word is that Rashod Smith(FIU)didn't get a good look by the scouts. They apparently didn't have him complete several workouts. They sort of leaned more towards the UM tailbacks. If it's true, the kid is not too bad. He should have been given the same field time as the rest. I'm not saying he's just as good as Gore but he deserved his time slot too.

I could be wrong.

It may not be fair, but I think that especially if your are from a smaller school first impressions is so critical to getting a good look, slip-up and your are toast.

Guy's like Gore will get the benefit of the doubt.

That's true. His status and school will garner him the extra attention. Maybe that's why I would make a terrible owner or scout. I'd look at the guys who are not on that many radars to see who pops up. Probably be broke by season's end but….. ;D

Case in point: CB Anthony Henry from USF signed for the rookie minimum the 4th round(97th) Cleveland Browns, 2001. He just signed a 25 Million deal with Dallas this week!

Article excerpt:
At 6-1 and 205 pounds, he's a physical player who is not timid in providing run support. He has 17 interceptions in four years, including 10 as a rookie. In the last 20 seasons, only five players have had as many as 10 in a season.

He has started 37 games in the past three seasons and recorded a career-high 85 tackles.


Maybe FAU will have someone sneak through like this. 8-)

I would propably be like you, it may take more effort to find some of these guys, but the effort would be worth it. I would be a deligent budget buster for sure.

With all it's challenges it would make for a great gig.

There were some good 40 times and some not so good times. Most results were not disclosed by the recruiters/scouts. ??? Parker and Bynes had their agents who spoke for them with scouts and coaches. I don't know how that went over. Bynes ran a very fast 40 3 times. Low 4.3's(?). LT(Taylor) ran a fast 40 also. Shuttle runs and other timed events had a good showing by some of the players. Broad Jumps were in the normal ballpark of 9.5 - 10 feet. Most FAU verticals were in the avg range also. 33-40 inches. I don't know about the lifts.

Edmonton Eskimos(CFL) invited SS Cameron Rodgers and SS Jerrell Terry for a FA tryout in Georgia next weekend. Some other players were invited to participate in the NFL Europe combines in Tampa also.

FAU will get on the map with any type of advertisements at the combines and camps. It's a start.

It shows as thought the players represented themselve well, I expect that they will take advantage of any opportunity they are given - hopefully the scouts leave have the some of the players profolio 's in hand.

I'm betting Yrven Geurrier and Chris Shepard will be in somebody's camp too. They didn't have the high profile like Parker,Bynes and Laz but the guys can play.

Ty Higgins had a good season. Watching the NFL Combine last week I wonder if he may fit someone's SS needs.
