End of week pro day updates

March 17, 2023

End of week pro day updates … Still not a whole lot of info coming out of the various pro days around the country. We did get a second report, for example, that Georgia Tech DE Keion White was timed in the 4.65-4.75 range on his one 40 run yesterday, but again that doesn’t tell us very much. White, though, did manage a 34-inch vertical which is a very good number for someone his size (6-5, 285); plus he posted 30 reps in the bench press which is good for any size. we also never did get an official 40 time for Army DE Andre Carter, but sources close to that program have reported that he timed ‘somewhere’ in the 4.90 range. And that’s not going to move the needle much for a 6-6, 255-pound edge rusher. At the same time, Wagner LB Titus Leo, who was not invited to the combine, also worked out at the Army pro day and ran somewhere in the 4.75-4.80 range at 6-3, 245.

Meanwhile, there was a full house at the Big House today with all 32 teams represented. There were reports that DT Mazi Smith, who didn’t run at the combine, worked out really well today, but so far there isn’t any hard data to back it up. One former Wolverine who maybe did help himself today was CB Gemon Green, who wasn’t invited to the combine, but put up some decent numbers today including a 4.55 40 clocking and a 37.5-inch vertical. And just for the record, the guy everyone seemed to be gushing about coming out of the UM workout was junior QB JJ McCarthy, who isn’t draft eligible this year, but reportedly threw the ball with real authority today as he threw passes to his graduating teammates. And speaking of Michigan, at least the state of, we would be remiss in not mentioning Michigan State LB Ben VanSumeren (6-1, 237), who may have had the best workout of the week earlier this week, when he ran a reported sub-4.5 40 while posting a 42.5-inch vertical, a 10-11 long jump, along with 29 BP reps.
