Perhaps the most impressive performance by a former Buff today came from wide receiver Patrick Williams.
Williams 11-foot standing broad jump in the Dal Ward Center weight room was longer than all but three jumps at the NFL Scouting combine last month in Indianapolis. No Buffs were invited to the combine, so the seniors from last year's team along with former Buff linebacker Thaddaeus Washington, worked out for about 15 scouts on campus today.
Linebacker Brad Jones has added nearly 10 pounds since the end of last season and was impressive on pro timing day in Boulder today. Jones said scouts are telling him he will likely play the outside linebacker spot in 3-4 defenses at the pro level.
Jones broad jumped 9 feet, 11 inches and showed a 33-inch vertical jump. His 40-yard dash time was 4.54 seconds and he bench pressed 225 pounds 19 times. Almost all of his results fell into the average or better than average category for players at his position. Jones is not currently projected as a draft pick and is more likely to be picked up as an undrafted free agent. He is likely to get a chance to prove himself in camp somewhere.Here are some links to video of some of the Buffs performing today.
