    Jason Smith Attends Baylor Pro Day/Will Have Private Workout With Rams

    Smith is Main Attraction at Baylor's Pro Day

    WACO, Texas ó When you get on the main street leading into Baylor University, you immediately see the signs directing visitors to the football teamís pro-day workouts. Thatís what happens when you have a top draft pick in your midst.

    Representatives from 15 NFL teams attended todayís workout, including three offensive line coaches ó Andy Hecht (Jacksonville), Paul Alexander (Cincinnati), and Mike Solari (Seattle). The main attraction was offensive tackle Jason Smith, projected to be a top-10 draft pick next month.

    Smith was one of 12 players participating ó 11 from Baylor and one player from nearby Mary Harden Baylor University. Baylor passed out a helpful information packet on its 11 players, complete with contact information for agents and where to reach the players on draft day.

    Pro day was well organized. Players ran outdoors on grass. The overall event took a little over two hours, followed by extra time in which the three NFL line coaches worked out Smith and fellow Baylor OL Dan Gay.
    Smith did position drills but stood on his combine numbers for the other drills. Gay participated at the combine but did everything Tuesday morning in hopes of improving his numbers.

    Gay measured in at 6-foot-4 and 303 pounds. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.48, running with the wind. He had a 24 Ĺ-inch vertical jump, a 7-foot, 1 Ĺ-inch broad jump, a 5.40-second short-shuttle run, a 8.47-second 3-cone drill, and he did 20 repetitions on the bench press.

    All 15 NFL reps in attendance will be at Texas A&Mís pro day Wednesday morning.

    The St. Louis Rams, who have the second overall pick in the draft, will be back in Waco on March 12 for a private workout with Smith.

    Well i really dont want to jump to conclusions but how can i not?

    Since it is a private meeting it means we have plenty of intrest in him. Lets see if the Rams go for a private meeting with Curry and/or Monroe

    I'm sure we will have private workouts with all of the top five to ten projected players. I highly doubt we would tip our hand so obviously by only working out one player. I'm sure we have plenty of interest in him, but we are also interested in all the top prospects.

    I wouldn't even be surprised if the Rams set up workouts with Orakpo and Stafford as well, in addition to Crabtree, if only for an interview. The Rams'll do their homework, and won't tip their hand too much I would imagine. Remember last year, we didn't know until they picked Chris who they were really going for.

    There will probably be a number of clear "finalists," including a few who would only be considered if the Rams traded down a few spots.

    Shan, if the patriots wanted a top 3 pick, they would own the KC pick right now. Its a good question, however, on who the trading partner could be. Personally, i think we are picking second. I dont see anyone trading up unless by some miracle detroit passes on stafford and someone else falls in love with him, which i view as a longshot. The cap implications of the #2 pick are very severe and the talent gap just isnt there.

    ramming speed to all
