    The Official 2008 Pro Day Thread

    Since the combine is over, it's time to move on to Pro Day discussion. Here are a few notes from the various pro days that have taken place to date...

    -Toledo OT John Greco improved on his combine 40-time by running a 5.16 at his pro day.

    -Boise State OT Ryan Clady apparently impressed scouts at his pro day with a 31-inch vertical and 9-foot broad jump. His 40-time was approximately 5.18 seconds. Carolina had a number of team representatives present.

    -Miami safety Kenny Phillips only did DB drills, deciding to stand on his combine 40-time. Reports indicate he impressed in drills and earned praise from the soucts in attendance. Good footwork.

    -Hurricanes defensive end Calias Campbell continued to disappoint, looking slugging as he tries to adjust to added weight. He did however improve on his combine vertical, and he claims teams have been impressed with him in interviews.

    -Linebacker Tavares Gooden (Miami) ran a 4.46 at his pro day and measured an incredible vertical leap of 39.5 inches.

    Tavares Gooden is a big time "riser" in my book. While OLB is not a top need position, he could end up being the best value on the board when the Rams pick in the second round.

    It's looking right now like Chillar is going to walk, but apparently Devaney is pretty high on Culberson. Pisa can't seem to stay healthy so I think depth at linebacker wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

    I still think we'll see a good bit of value at WR at the top of round two, and our need will press us into looking hard there. Gooden could very well be second round material, especially to teams like Indy or Tampa that like those athletic versatile defenders.

    The most interesting Pro-Day will be Glenn Dorsey. If he has a good pro day I believe we will select him. His trainer Tom Shaw said his MRI and X-ray came back clean. March 26 will be a very interesting day.

    Re: The Official 2008 Pro Day Thread

    According to Rob Rang of NFL Draft Scout, Vernon Gholston might have solidified a spot in the top five with an AMAZING pro day workout in front of an estimated 50 pro scouts from nearly every team in the league. Gholston logged a 4.58 forty yard dash and 42" inch vertical jump while measuring in at 6'3" and 266 pounds.

    This makes Gholston an intriguing OLB prospect in the 3-4 as these times rank better than all but two DEs from the combine, but Rang says that most scouts view Gholston as a classic pass rushing DE.

    It was supposedly a surprise that Gholston even worked out at his pro day, as he didn't have to. But it showed his competitiveness, and that on top of potentially securing a top five spot, he may have leapfrogged Chris Long as the draft's top DE. According to Rang, scouts view Long as the better player right now due to technique and instincts, but confirms that some scouts view Gholston as the superior athlete. One scout referred to Long as the finished product, whereas Gholston is an ascending player who could be something special in a few years.

    Gholston's pro day

    Did he really improve his stock there?

    Draft Dish: Mixed reviews for Gholston
    Sporting News - Print this article PRINT
    Posted: March 9, 2008

    NFL personnel arrived at the Ohio State on-campus workout excited about how DE Vernon Gholston would perform. He no doubt looks the part, with a muscular, defined build. Gholston impressed many when he ran his 40 on field turf instead of Ohio State's notoriously fast track, timing a 4.63 and a 4.65. He then had a 37- to 38-inch vertical jump; anyone who reports he jumped 42 inches has bad sources, because the testing unit was slightly broken during his jump. Once on the field, though, Gholston was not nearly as impressive. He is so muscular and big that he struggled to bend his knees and sink his hips, which hindered his ability to change directions in drills. Gholston was not the only Buckeye to work out. OT Kirk Barton ran a good 40 on the fast track (in the 4.98 range, though there was some variance depending on the scout). However, he was not impressive in drills and did not make anyone think he is a better athlete than he has showed during games. ...

    Re: Gholston's pro day

    OLB Gholston, TE Keller tops among pro day performances so far
    By Todd McShay
    Scouts Inc.
    (Archive)



    Ohio State DE/OLB Vernon Gholston continued his assault on the pre-draft process during the Buckeyes' pro day workout Friday in Columbus, Ohio. The 6-foot-3, 266-pounder blazed a 40-yard dash time of 4.59 seconds and soared 42 inches in the vertical jump, both slightly better than his impressive numbers (4.67, 35.5) at last month's combine. Now that Gholston has twice verified in workouts the explosiveness scouts have seen on film for the past two seasons -- during which he had 22.5 sacks -- there should be no question about his standing as a top-10 prospect in this year's draft class. With the Jets, Patriots and Ravens -- all of whom employ 3-4 defensive schemes -- selecting sixth, seventh and eighth, respectively, it's hard to imagine Gholston still being available when the Bengals select at No. 9.


    Like Gholston, Purdue TE Dustin Keller used a recent pro day to improve on sensational combine results. His 41-inch vertical leap, three inches better than his showing in Indianapolis, stood out most and showed Keller's lower body explosiveness. While he never will be a good in-line blocker, Keller displays the speed, hands, athleticism and leaping ability of a true difference-maker in the NFL passing game. Creative offensive teams such as the Colts, Saints, Broncos, Eagles, Seahawks, Buccaneers and Rams should value Keller as a late-first-round prospect. In fact, don't be surprised if a team trades back into Round 1 to snatch him. There simply are not enough talented tight ends in this year's draft class for a team in need to be complacent.

    ESPN said he had a great day, have to wait and see, what the real deal is I guess.

    Re: Gholston's pro day

    That's the first report I've read about Gholston's pro day that hasn't been overwhelmingly positive, so as it's in the minority, I'll take it with a bit of a grain of salt. The only real concerning part of the article is the talk about how his physique hindered his ability to change direction. That's probably a bit more concerning to teams looking at him as a 3-4 OLB than a team looking at him as a 4-3 DE.

    Re: The Official 2008 Pro Day Thread

    Good point Nick, anyone looking at Gholston to mainly be a 4-3 end can deal with a little bit less agility if he gets more leverage with a little added weight.

    Re: The Official 2008 Pro Day Thread

    Some additional Pro Day notes...

    -Oklahoma State WR Adarius Bowman failed to improve on his disappointing Combine forty, running a 4.76 at his pro day on Wednesday.

    -Michigan State WR Devin Thomas and Cal WR DeSean Jackson both chose not to run at their respective pro days, standing on their Combine times.

    -Auburn DE/LB Quentin Groves did a number of drills for scouts at his pro day on Monday, and said most teams are looking at him as a linebacker.

    -Kansas CB Aqib Talib ran an unofficial 4.48, close to his Combine number. He apparently looked impressive in drills, displaying good footwork and ball skills.

    -Nebraska OL Carl Nicks has been banned from participating in the team's pro day because of an off the field incident.
