Supplemental Prospect Works Out

Coaches, area scouts, and college scouting directors from a dozen NFL teams were on hand Monday in Lincoln, Neb., for the pro day workout of offensive lineman Chris Patrick. The supplemental draft prospect hoped to turn in an impressive performance and here are the results.

The workout started late in the afternoon and was held indoors. According to a source at the workout, the conditions were not favorable as it was excessively hot. In an unusual move, Patrick was measured after the workout was completed. His 6-foot-4.5 frame weighed 296 pounds. 

Patrick's workout numbers included 5.30 seconds in the forty, 4.50 seconds in the short shuttle, a vertical jump of 27 inches and 31 repetitions on the bench press. He was later put through a battery of offensive line drills by Kansas City Chiefs assistant offensive line coach Bob Bicknell.

Last evening, Patrick, who is projected as an interior lineman, was interviewed one-on-one by the Atlanta Falcons. Prior to today's workout, he spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants, New England Patriots, Minnesota Vikings, Baltimore Ravens, Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and New Orleans Saints.

When will Patrick be selected in next month's supplemental draft?

Scouts on hand felt had he entered April's draft and went through the entire pre-draft process there was a chance Patrick would have slipped into the fourth round.

The way it stands now, considering any team who selects Patrick must not only forfeit the corresponding pick in the 2008 draft but must count his salary against the 2007 rookie cap, he is likely to be a late-round selection.
