BYU Pro Day

181

While most BYU students were in class or studying yesterday afternoon, NFL scouts from across the country were gathered inside the Indoor Practice Facility.

BYU held its NFL Pro Day yesterday on campus as NFL scouts watched and evaluated ten BYU seniors do their best in various physical exercies such as bench-pressing and cone drills. Each player tried to perform well in hopes to impress the scouts for a chance at competing for a spot in the NFL.

Former BYU offensive linemen Terence Brown and Matt Reynolds, running back JJ Di Luigi, defensive backs Corby Eason and Travis Uale, defensive linemen Hebron Fangupo and Matt Putnam, linebackers Jameson Frazier and Jordan Pendleton (lifed only) and wide receiver McKay Jacobson all participated.

The day began in the weight room in the Student Athlete Building as each participant did a bench press to see how many 225 pound repetitions he could do. Then the scouts and players moved into the Indoor Practice Facility where each player did various drills, including the broad jump, 3 cone drills and several timed sprints. Scouts were also there to get measurements of each player.

The event was closed to the public but several coaches, administrators and media were all in attendance. The EVENT also attracted previous, current and future BYU football players, including recent BYU greats, Max Hall and Austin Collie.

Two non-BYU participants were also in attendance: Les Brown, the brother of offensive lineman Braden Brown and Devin Tavan, brother of senior volleyball player Futi Tavana.
