    Pro-day 3-18: Virginia, Virginia Tech, Stanford, Oregon
    18 Mar

    Things slow down today after yesterday’s hectic pro-day schedule. Nate Collins and Sergio Render are just two non-combine prospects working out today in the state of Virginia while Chris Marinelli is in the same situation out in Stanford. We’ll have all these covered and expect to get information in from the Temple pro-day as well. Update: Va Tech & Stanford

    Virginia Tech

    The workout at Virginia Tech is finished and junior defender Jason Worilds impressed scouts on hand. Worilds averaged in the low 4.5-second area during his two attempts in the forty (4.47 and 4.55). His short shuttle time of 4.08 seconds was solid and Worilds posted a broad jump of 9’ 10’’. The Carolina Panthers and linebacker drills by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

    Defensive lineman Cordarrow Thompson, a sleeper of sorts, measured 6021/311lbs, completed 24 reps on the bench and a vertical jump of 26.5-inches. His forty time was 5.18 included a 10yd split of 1.73 seconds. The New York Jets, a team in need of young defensive line help, closely monitored Thompson.

    Cornerback Stephan Virgil posted a time of 4.64 seconds in the forty, 4.08 seconds in the shuttle and a three cone of 6.87 seconds.


    Steve Maneri showed surprising speed and athleticism during today’s Temple pro-day. He measured 6-foot, 7-inch prospect weighed 264-pounds then ran a time of 4.81 in the 40. He completed 23 reps on the bench, posted a 28 inch vertical jump and timed 4.51 in the short shuttle.


    Numbers are slowly coming in from the Stanford workout.

    Allen Smith, the one time highly rated offensive lineman who suffered a variety of injuries recently, completed 27 reps on the bench, posted a forty time of 5.31-seconds, short shuttle of 4.6 seconds and 7.6 seconds in the three cone. He moved relatively well in drills.

    Chris Marinelli, the college tackle we project to guard in the NFL, was able to get under 5.1-seconds in the forty. He also only completed 17 reps on the bench.

    Reportedly defensive lineman Ekom Udofia pushed up 35 reps on the bench. This is yet to be confirmed.

    We were told scouts asked Toby Gerhart to run the 60 yard shuttle as he did not complete the drill at the combine, and the big back would not run.

    Florida State

    There was a time when the FSU pro-day was a major event on the calendar yet these days people often don’t take note. There are still some fast times.

    Cornerback Patrick Robinson posted a forty time of 4.38 seconds while linebacker Dekoda Watson was also swift clocking 4.45 seconds. Robinson looked solid in drills.

    Surprisingly Myron Rolle, who ran poorly at the combine, did not workout today and was a no show. Rolle will have hold a private workout in a few weeks yet scouts did not hide their displeasure over the fact the safety was not in attendance.


    Nearly a dozen scouts were on hand to watch defensive lineman Nate Collins.

    Collins weighed in at 291 pounds then ran a time of 4.85 seconds in the 40. His vertical jump was a solid 32-inches. He looked terrific in drills and most scouts now feel Collins can play either defensive tackle in a conventional system or the end position in a 3-4 alignment.

    Linebacker Denzel Burrell put up solid numbers today. He measured 6033/229lbs, posted a forty time of 4,58 seconds, completed 23 reps on the bench and touched 36.5-inches in the vertical jump.

    Chris Cook took part in defensive back drills and looked uninspired. Throughout the drills coaches had to coax Cook to pick up the tempo.

    Chris Cook did not run this morning at Virginia pro-day.

    Toby Gerhart of Stanford is not expected run and will stand on his times from the combine. Defensive end Erik Lorig will also not be working out as he had minor surgery on a pectoral muscle right after the combine. He’s expected to be 100% by early June.

    Running back LeGarrette Blount as well as safety TJ Ward are both expected to workout for scouts.
