Jeremy Reaves is used to being underestimated, and he's found the NFL draft process to be no different. Despite being named Sun Belt Conference Defensive Player of the Year last season and playing in the Reese's Senior Bowl in January, the former South Alabama safety was not invited to February's NFL combine. After spending the last few months training in the Dallas area, Reaves hoped to use Friday's South Alabama Pro Day to show NFL teams what they missed out on by not bringing him to Indianapolis. "It was frustrating," Reaves said. "I felt like I put the work in to get there (the combine), but I came up short. Everything happens for a reason. God makes no mistakes. I just used it to get better every day for my pro day. At first, it was a hard, I'm not going to lie. But I just had to use it as motivation." Reaves was one of more than a dozen former Jaguars who went through the various combine-style drills at Pro Day, including the bench press, broad jump, vertical jump, 40-yard dash … [Read more...] about South Alabama’s Jeremy Reaves used NFL combine snub as motivation for Pro Day
For the first time since 2012, no Gophers football players were invited to the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis last month, meaning Wednesday’s pro day at the U was the best opportunity for 11 Minnesota players to showcase their abilities. Running back Kobe McCrary, defensive tackle Steven Richardson and linebacker Jon Celestin each said they woke up at 3 a.m., anticipating their biggest chance to prove themselves at 9 o’clock. Richardson woke up three times before rising at 5 a.m. “I was a bit salty; I felt like we got snubbed a little bit,” Richardson said about no invites to the combine or top-level all-star game appearances. “I also just use it as fuel.” At 5-foot-10, Richardson worked to distance himself from height limitations that likely will be Exhibit A in arguments as to why he can’t cut it in the NFL. The stout 295-pound player bench-pressed 225 pounds 31 times, a mark that would have placed him tied for seventh among interior … [Read more...] about Gophers ‘salty’, motivated at pro day after NFL combine snub
By Rusty Simmons Updated 10:31 pm, Tuesday, March 20, 2018 James Looney didn’t even have to participate in the 40-yard dash, shuttle run or three-cone drill to make an impression Tuesday. By the time the defensive lineman had completed his first rep in position drills, many of the NFL personnel members gathered at Memorial Stadium for Cal’s Pro Day were being drawn to get a closer look at his display. “I feel like I can play any position at the next level,” said Looney, who is considered a bit of a tweener at 6-foot-2, 289 pounds. “If they wanted me to lose a little weight and play outside linebacker, I could do it. “I feel like that’s my key: my athleticism.” Looney played the 3-technique, 4-I and 5-technique and in both the 4-3 and 3-4 fronts during his time in Berkeley. In three seasons, he racked up 130 tackles, including 20.5 that went for losses, eight sacks and four fumble recoveries. He tried to prove wrong those who … [Read more...] about James Looney looks to be Cal’s top NFL Draft prospect
