We’re sitting here at Pro Day in the IPF, which has lasted longer than anticipated.
Draft-eligible players have gone through about a half dozen tests for strength, speed and agility.
Some of us were timing players with cell phones, but we were asked not to publish times. Those times may be available later at NFL.com we were told.
A total of 45 scouts were on hand to represent every NFL team.
The first drill was the bench press where each player pressed 225 pounds as often as he could. The top three were Tony Fein at 29, Peria Jerry at 28 and Michael Oher at 25. Those figures are unofficial.
You can tell the scouts know Peria.
Jermey Parnell is also working out and has had a good day it appears. He’s been working in preparation for this day in Dallas, I was told.
Wide receiver Mike Wallace posted some excellent times at the NFL combine in February and has chosen not to work out today. He stands on those times. He’s walked around the IPF today in sweats with his Ipod.
Among the other Ole Miss players working out for scouts are Jamarca Sanford, Ashlee Palmer, Dustin Mouzon, Jason Cook and Maurice Miller.
