JCFootball.com combine advisor, Dave Ogas, commented during the forty testing that a great deal of speed was on display. The results seem to support his assertion as five guys ran 4.5 or under.
WR Paris Hamilton (Tyler): 4.37
There was some wind, but these guys ran once in each direction and both times were great. Hamilton is compared favorably to former Tyler WR, Robert Ferguson, who starred at Texas A&M for one season before moving to the NFL. He's now the go-to guy for the Green Bay Packers. Hamilton is a great looking prospect at 6-1, 197.
The tallest wide receiver was Cisco's Brian Fry. At 6-5, 210, he has the ability to go up over shorter corners and bring the ball down. Fry made a spectacular diving grab during the one-on-ones that had everyone cheering; he returned to the group a little winded but received many a slap on the back for his efforts. Cisco coaches believe he's surefire D1 guy, who has all the tools to succeed at the next level. And coaches around the conference praised him, too.
We'll have much more on the Tyler Combine in coming weeks.
Tomorrow we're off to Santa Ana College in Southern California, where we expect a very large turnout.
Apologies for the short report...we'll make it up to you later.
