In a draft year loaded at WR one would not normally expect one of the hotter receivers to be a 5-8 guy from the MAC but these are definitely not normal times. And Western Michigan WR D’Wayne Eskridge is one of the hotter receivers out there after a solid performance at this year’s Senior Bowl and he didn’t do anything to hurt his grade at the Broncos’ pro day earlier today, although size is an issue. In fact, Eskridge did measure in at 5-8, although at a solid 190 pounds. He also has relatively small hands (8.5″) and short arms (30.5″), but he’s fast and quick. Eskridge time the 40 in 4.38 seconds today – and said he was disappointed – while posting very quick times of 4.22 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.95 in the 3-cone. He also had decent leaps of 35 inches in the vertical and 10-4 in the LJ.
Size is also something of an issue for WMU OT Jaylon Moore, who like Eskridge was invited to this year’s combine. Moore measured in at 6-4, 311 with 33.5-inch arms which is right on the fringe of standard NFL OT size. Moore did post a respectable 27 reps in the BP, but only clocked 5.25 in the 40, although he was relatively quick in the both the short shuttle (4.67) and 3-cone drills (7.77).
