If you haven't heard of Moritz Boehringer before now, don't feel bad because most NFL team's weren't focusing too much of their attention on the German wide receiver before last week. However, that changed on Thursday at Florida Atlantic's Pro Day when Boehringer had an incredible performance that included a 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds.
Boehringer performed very well at the Pro Day and put up numbers that would have ranked near the top among wide receivers at the NFL Combine.
|Workout||Result||Rank at Combine|
|40-yard Dash||4.43 seconds||T-4th|
|Bench Press||17 reps||T-5th|
|Vertical Jump||39 inches||4th|
|Broad Jump||10 feet, 11 inches||T-2nd|
|20-yard Shuttle||4.10 seconds||4th|
|3-Cone Drill||6.65 seconds||T-3rd|
These numbers combined with the fact that Boehringer is 6'4" has opened the eyes of NFL teams. However, he is very raw and has only played football for five years. He recently played only one season for the Schwabisch Hall Unicorns in the GFL but it was a very productive season with 70 catches, 1,461 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.
NFL.com's Lance Zierlin compared Boehringer to Green Bay Packers Jeff Janis not only because he had similar results in his Pro Day but also because he didn't play in Division I. it is hard to imagine that Boehringer will be a high-draft pick however an NFL team is sure to take a chance after his Pro Day similar to what the Packers did with Janis drafting him in the seventh round.
