Va Tech, Auburn, UCLA Pro Day Updates

The Cowboys need help at running back and will now turn to the draft to help fill one of their biggest offseason needs. Unofficially we can tell you Kevin Jones ran in the mid 4.5 area at Virginia Tech's Pro Day, and he also recorded a 37-inch vertical jump and completed 22 reps on the bench.

Cols Colas had a good workout. Unofficially he was clocked between a 4.45 and 4.50 in his running of the forty's, completed the vertical jump of 37-inches and a broad jump of 9-11. Impressively he completed 26 reps on the bench. New York Jet coaches spent extensive time with the soon to be linebacker.

Another defensive lineman who may make a switch was Nathaniel Adibi. Adibi told us he scouts had him exclusively working on linebacker drills today. He did not run the forty and will stick with his combine time but did complete 24 reps on the bench and had a 33-inch vertical jump. Adibi weighed in at 253-pounds.

Unofficially we can tell you Kevin Jones ran in the mid 4.5 area, had a 37 inch vertical jump and completed 22 reps on the bench. Overall he did well in the drills after testing as did DeAngelo Hall who looked very impressive the entire day though we were told he did not run the forty (to be confirmed).

Earnest Wilford improved on his combine time and clocked in the 4.7 area.

Still suffering the lingering effects of a high ankle sprain which he suffered during his senior season, Rodney Leslie toughed it out for scouts today. Originally not expected to take part in the entire workout, scouts were impressed with the defensive tackles resiliency and willingness to do as they asked. Leslie measured in at 6032 and 300 pounds, then ran a pair of forties in 5.18 and 5.23 on the slow grass surface at UCLA. His all important 10-yard split times were fast at 1.82 and 1.80. The defensive tackle turned in a vertical jump of 28 inches, a broad jump of 8-5 and a solid 20-yard shuttle time of 4.69. Yesterday he pushed up the bar 31 times on the bench. Denver and Green Bay were high on the UCLA product as scouts in attendance applauded his intensity.

Teammate Ryan Boschetti fared better in the forty clocking a 5.15 and 5.18 but only completed 15 reps on the bench.

The Chargers were interested in the services of Dave Ball who measured in at 6051/275 and posted shuttle times of 4.62 and 4.56.
