Memphis pro day

March 27, 2021

NFL teams were very interested to see how Memphis RB Kenneth Gainwell tested after he had a breakout year in 2019 when he had over 2,000 yards from scrimmage including 1,460 on the ground while catching 51 passes for another 600 yards. Gainwell, though, is another player who opted out of the 2020 season so hasn’t been seen in a while. And Gainwell tested well enough running the 40 in 4,42 seconds after measuring in at 5-11, 195. He also posted 21 reps in the bench press and had a decent 35-inch vertical, whereas his shuttle times of 4.35 seconds in the SS and 7.13 in the 3-cone would have been middle-of-the-packish at the position at the 2020 combine. On the other hand, WR Damonte Coxie, who is generally thought of as a solid mid-third day type prospect didn’t run at all as he clocked the 40 in 4.77 seconds running at 6-2, 200.
