Iowa State pro day

March 23, 2021

Approximately two dozen teams had reps at the Iowa State pro day. And while there were 11  guys working out, the Cyclone most NFL teams would like to get their hands on – RB Breece Hall, who led the country in rushing as a freshman last fall – wasn’t. As a consolation prize, the scouts in attendance did see a pretty athletic performance by Hall’s back-up, RB Kene Ngwangu, who does double as one of the top kick returners in the country. In particular, Ngwangu reportedly ran under 4.3 seconds for the 40 with an unofficial time of 4.29. He also had a 37-inch vertical and blitzed the 3-cone drill in 6.75 seconds, which would have been the second fastest time overall at the 2020 combine. Meanwhile, DE JaQuan Bailey, a 3rd day prospect for the upcoming draft also had a nice day, running a solid 4.72 40, while he was clocked in a quicker 7.31 in the 3-cone drill which would have been among the leaders at the position at last year’s combine. TE Dylan Soehner, who was invited to the combine, was also quicker than fast as he timed 7.22 in the 3-cone, which is pretty good for a TE, versus his 40-time of 4.78 which is kind of pedestrian for the position these days. FS Lawrence White may have earned himself a decent free agent offer with a solid outing; he ran the 40 in an unofficial 4.51, while posting good times of 4.21 in the short shuttle and 6.98 in the 3-cone.
