On Saturday, April 3, the NFL Draft Bible was on location in St. Louis for a Pro Day with NFL free agents who didn't have Pro Days because of COVID-19. Marc Lillibridge, of the Brawl Network, who has 25 years of NFL experience, was there to verify times and measurements. Russell Lande, director of U.S. scouting for the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League and a former NFL scout, also helped out along with the Elite Football Academy. The Pro Day verified measurements and times for 28 players who will be able to send the information to teams in an attempt to be signed. Here were some of the top performers of the event:
Sha’haun Williams | Notre Dame College | DE | Height: 6010 | Weight: 260 | Hand: 1028 | Arm: 3448 | Wing: 7968 | Vertical: 33.5 | Bench: 32 | Agility: 4.44 | 3-Cone: 7.65
The Notre Dame College defender displayed excellent length at 6010. The key is also getting 32 bench reps and 33.5 inches in the vertical jump. This sort of strength and explosion will allow him to play with leverage while being a little undersized. These numbers are crucial for him to get a chance at the next level because teams will be able to see a correlation with his leverage wins.
Tremaine Ross | University of Charleston | WR | Height: 5071 | Weight: 182 | Hand: 0848 | Arm: 3000 | Wing: 6748 | 40: 4.35 | Vertical: 38 | Broad: 10-1 | 3-Cone: 7.28 | Agility: 4.19
The undersized receiver had excellent numbers athletically. He ran in the mid-4.4s for his 40 and having a 38-inch vertical shows his tremendous explosion. The numbers he put up could suggest to teams that he could be a change-of-pace running back at the next level. His numbers justify a shot in the league and he could be one of the players getting a call after the Pro Day.
Jeremy Bell | University of Charleston | DB | Height: 5111 | Weight: 190 | Hand: 0978 | Arm: 3148 | Wing: 7428 | 40: 4.38 | Vertical: 38 | Broad: 10-8 | Bench: 20 | 3-Cone: 4.03 | Agility: 7.03
Bell had impressive numbers all around. First, his measurements left nothing to question as all fit league thresholds. The athletic numbers were also off the charts. His 40, vertical and 3-cone were all very impressive. If teams like what they see on his tape, there are ample reasons to give him in a chance.
Juantarius Bryant | Austin Peay | S | Height: 5084 | Weight: 193 | Hand: 0978 | Arm: 3148 | Wing: 7328 | 40: 4.49 | Vertical: 39 | Bench: 23 | Broad: 10-5 | 3-Cone: 6.91 | Agility: 4.00
The Austin Peay safety measured in slightly undersized, but made up for it with outstanding testing numbers. A 39-inch vertical is very impressive, and 4.00 on the shuttle is excellent. He was also able to do 23 bench reps at 193 pounds, which is high above expectations. Teams will have to deal with his height, but with testing numbers like these, it shouldn’t surprise anyone if he gets an opportunity.
Takota Anderson | Kansas Wesleyan | DB | Height: 5114 | Weight: 190 | Hand: 0828 | Arm: 3078 | Wing: 7228 | 40: 4.49 | Vertical: 35.5 | 3-Cone: 7.12 | Agility: 4.27
Anderson measured in solidly with his height, arm length and wingspan. He was also able to impress with some of his athletic numbers, including a sub-4.5 40 and a 35.5-inch vertical. All his Pro-Day numbers checked out, so teams that feel confident in him can put athleticism and size questions to rest.
