Lowe, Tracy Moore Impress On Pro Day

STILLWATER - There were 42 NFL coaches, scouts and management like New England Patriots special assistant Michael Lombardi and Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin in Stillwater on Wednesday morning for the Oklahoma State Cowboys annual Pro Day. It was the first to be held in part in the new indoor Sherman Smith Training Facility, something those pro folks have been looking forward to.

They were there to see expected first-round and top 10 NFL Draft pick Justin Gilbert and some of the non-NFL Combine invitees such as defensive tackle Calvin Barnett, safety Daytawion Lowe, linebacker Shaun Lewis, and receivers like Tracy Moore and Charlie Moore.

Here's a summary of how each of the 23 seniors that worked out performed. Others participating were early eligible inside receiver Josh Stewart and past Cowboys players Evan Epstein and Alex Elkins.

Calvin Barnett, DT
6-1.7, 317, Hand: 10 inches, Arm: 33 3/8 inches
Barnett, who has dealt with nagging injuries, did 20 reps on the 225-pound bench press test and ran 5.28 and 5.32 in the 40-yard dash. It will come down to what teams see on tape and how they feel he will fare in a physical.

"I feel like it went alright," Barnett said of his workout. "I didn't do anything special in my opinion. I'm fresh off the meniscus repair that I had, so I don't feel like I'm in good enough shape yet. I'm going to schedule another workout here soon, probably in April, so I can get into better shape and try and do better."

Clint Chelf, QB
6-1.3, 208, Hand: 9 7/8 inches, Arm: 31 1/8 inches
Chelf did well with his 4.62 and 4.64 times in the 40-yard dash. His vertical was a 30.5 inches and his broad jump was 9 feet even. He threw the ball well in drills. Chelf is looking to get a chance in a camp and he just might have earned a look today.

"I felt good. I feel like I threw the ball pretty well today," Chelf said. "A lot of my times and my jumps accomplished what I wanted to today. It's been a really great experience and a lot of fun. I felt good out there."

Chelf had been working out in East Texas with Charlie Moore and you could tell he'd been throwing the ball. He looks at the process as an exciting opportunity.

"It's exciting," he said. "I think that's the first word that comes to your mind. We were all out here yesterday talking and we were ready to get out there and go. We've been training for this, specifically, for the last two months, but really your whole life.

"Playing football, it's what you do. It was really exciting for all of us. We were all anxious and nervous a little bit but at the end of the day you have to go out there and perform and do what you've done your whole life. It was a great experience and something that I'll remember for a long time."

Davidell Collins, DT
6-5.3, 256, Hand: 9 3/4 inches, Arm: 34 1/8 inches
Collins ran well enough with 5.25 and 5.24 times in the 40-yard dash, but his bench rep test of 10x225 pounds and his weight is not going to get him interest as a defensive tackle. He would need more speed to be a defensive end.

Zack Craig, S
6-1.4, 202, Hand: 8 1/2 inches, Arm: 31 3/8 inches
Craig is a good athlete and his 40-yard dash times of 4.63 and 4.64 are solid, but his vertical of 31 inches and his broad jump of 9 feet and 4 inches weren't as explosive as expected.

Shamiel Gary, S
5-11.6, 205, Hand: 8 7/8 inches, Arm: 30 1/8 inches
Gary was a solid performer with fast 40-yard dash times of 4.56 and 4.5 to go with a 35.5 vertical and 10 feet-3 inches in the broad jump. His other drills were good too.

Justin Gilbert, CB
6-0, 198, Hand: 8 1/4, Arm: 32 7/8
Gilbert just did a few drills and let his 4.37 forty at the combine and his 20x225-pound bench press rep test stand as well. He ran a 4.43 in the 20-yard shuttle, 11.36 in the 60-yard shuttle, and a sizzling 7.03 in the L drill. His pass drills were very good. Tomlin and the Steelers, the Vikings, and the Lions are publicized as the most interested in that first-round investment.

"I wanted to but my agent said my time was pretty good at the combine and I didn't need to run," Gilbert explained of not running a forty. "I talked with coach (Rob) Glass a couple days ago when I was still trying to decide whether or not to run the 40 and he said I had one of the fastest times there so I didn't really need to run. I relaxed a little bit today and just kind of took it easy."

John Goodlett, WR
5-10.2, 179, Hand: 9 inches, Arm: 31 1/2 inches
Goodlett was a good, reliable receiver at Oklahoma State and great attitude guy. His NFL career is a long shot with 4.68 and 4.7 in the forty. The 35-inch vertical is good as is the 9 feet-9 inches in the broad jump.

Parker Graham, OT
6-6.5, 308, Hand: 9 inches, Arm: 31 1/4 inches
Let's start with the 29 on the bench rep test with 225 pounds on the bar. That was very solid and his 40 was fine at 5.34 and 5.3. Size and quickness is okay. I expect him to be a late round selection and a certain sign as a free agent if not drafted.

"I didn't do as well as I wanted to in the 40, but everything else I felt good about," Graham explained afterward. "I came and gave everything I had. Hopefully that turns out well for me."

Deion Imade, LB
5-11, 202, Hand: 8 3/8 inches, Arm: 31 3/8 inches
Imade is not big enough for linebacker but he ran decent with 4.72 and 4.68 in the 40-yard dash.

Blake Jackson, WR
6-3.6, 229, Hand: 9 inches, Arm: 33 3/8 inches
The 40-yard dash times were 4.82 and 4.84, which is too slow for a wide receiver and close for a tight end. His vertical of 29.5 inches was also not what scouts will want.

Tyler Johnson, DE
6-1.5, 242, Hand: 10 3/8 inches, Arm: 31 7/8 inches
Johnson did not run and his height is short for a defensive end. He'll likely have to come back and run again. He did 21 reps on the bench press test.

Caleb Lavey, LB
6-2.6, 218, Hand: 7 1/4 inches, Arm: 31 1/4 inches
Lavey did not test as he recently had arthroscopic shoulder surgery.

Shaun Lewis, LB
5-11.1, 226, Hand: 9 7/8 inches, Arm: 30 7/8 inches
Lewis wants to play badly and his 40 times will be a problem with 4.92 and 4.95. He had 21 reps on the bench test, but his other drills were on the slow side as well. His vertical was 31 inches and his broad jump was 9 feet-2 inches. All I know is the guy can play football.

Daytawion Lowe, S
5-11.3, 195, Hand: 9 inches, Arm: 30 3/4 inches
Lowe may have helped himself more than anybody on the day as he blazed 4.45 twice in the forty and ran fast in all drills. He had a 37.5 vertical and 9 feet-8 inches in the broad jump. His bench press rep was a low 10 reps, but he showed explosion and speed.

"I think it went well. There is always room for improvement but overall I think today went pretty well," Lowe said. "It was somewhere around 4.4 and that is what I have been working for so I'm happy about that. It's been a lot of fun but it's also been a lot of hard work and dedication. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity so I'm taking advantage of it."

Joe Mitchell, LB
6-2.5, 220, Hand: 9 1/8 inches, Arm: 31 3/8 inches
Mitchell ran 4.73 and 4.71 in the 40-yard dash and had a 33-inch vertical. His drills were solid.

Charlie Moore, WR
6-2.3, 205, Hand: 9 3/8 inches, Arm: 30 3/4 inches
Charlie Moore got bigger in his training for Pro Day and it showed when he put up a 12 on the bench press rep test and then in the forty he ran 4.67 and 4.68. He had a 33 1/2 vertical and an impressive 10 feet-2 inches on the broad jump.

Tracy Moore, WR
6-1.2, 204, Hand: 9 5/8 inches, Arm: 31 7/8 inches
Tracy Moore went opposite of Charlie Moore, losing about 10 pounds heading into the workout and it helped him as he ran 4.56 and 4.59 in the forty and his vertical of 37 inches was strong. Moore really helped himself.

"I've been training in Miami, Florida. I weighed in at 204 today. I will gain some more and put it back on the right way," Moore explained. "I wanted to be a little lighter for the 40. When I went down there, I was about 220 and then I got down to 200. Then, I was like no that's too much and had to put some back on. I definitely feel like I helped myself. Just losing the weight I feel much better and I'm moving much quicker. I feel like I did help myself."

Tyler Patmon, CB
5-10.3, 179, Hand: 9 3/8 inches, Arm: 30 1/4 inches
Just like he did as a transfer last season, Patmon impressed in the workout. He is small by NFL standards but he ran well with a best 4.53 and good numbers across. I liked his 14 on the bench press rep test.

Anthony Rogers, DT
6-4.1, 302, Hand: 10 3/8 inches, Arm: 33 1/2 inches
Rogers is big and measure up well plus he had a 25 on the bench press rep test. His 40 times were really slow at 5.55 and 5.49.

Jeremy Smith, RB
5-10, 212, Hand: 9 1/8 inches, Arm: 30 1/4 inches
Smith threw up 24 on the bench press rep test, 35.5 on the vertical and he ran 4.69 and 4.71. The forties weren't great but if someone is looking for a tough back that can play special teams he might get a camp chance.

Kye Staley, FB
5-10.4, 248, Hand: 8 3/8 inches, Arm: 31 3/4 inches
If that is the last football stuff that Kye Staley does he still goes out impressing. He had a 25 on the bench press rep test and was stout. His speed is gone from the knee injury and the wear and tear.

Josh Stewart, WR
5-9.7, 176, Hand: 9 1/4 inches, Arm: 29 7/8 inches
Stewart was just looking to improve his 40-yard dash time and he did. Stewart ran 4.69 at the Combine and today he ran a 4.6 and a 4.59.

"My goal was to come out here today and just be better. I wanted to have a better day than I did at the combine and just work really hard because that is all I can do," OSU's leading receiver from the last two seasons said. "I think I did that today so I'm excited and looking forward to the coming months."

Steve Sumpter, LB
5-10.2, 197, Hand: 9 5/8 inches, Arm: 28 5/8 inches
Sumpter is looking to make it as a special teams kind of performer. He ran 4.77 and 4.67.

Andrew Suter, LS
6-2, 262, Hand: 9 3/8 inches, Arm: 31 1/2 inches
Suter tested okay, but for his position he just needs to be automatic on snapping. The speed is also viewed and the 5.47 and 5.39 won't help him.

Alex Elkins, LB
6-2.7, 236, Hand: 9 inches, Arm: 32 5/8 inches
Elkins was cut by Detroit last summer in camp. He worked out but his 40 was slow at 4.9 and 4.91

Evan Epstein, OC
6-2.7, 299, Hand: 9 5/8 inches, Arm: 30 3/4 inches
Epstein is strong as he won the honors on the bench press rep test a year ago and he did it again with a 30. He was cut by Miami last summer and it will be interesting if he gets another try.
