In the lead-up to the draft, we'll keep updating you on any interesting numbers from pro day workouts. This year's pro day schedule got underway on Tuesday and, so far, the 2019 pro day has taken place for each of the following schools:
- Miami (Ohio)
- Colorado State
- Kansas State
- Northern Illinois
- Air Force
With most of the combine attendees from these schools sitting on their numbers, here were the more interesting results:
Ozigbo tells reporters after his Pro Day he weighed in at 222. Also did 19 reps on the bench, 37-inch vertical jump and 10-4 broad jump. Says he's heard his 40 time is in the high 4.5s or low 4.6s but not totally sure. https://t.co/juW3Y1gpaF— Evan Bland (@EvanBlandOWH) March 7, 2019
Ozigbo was a surprise combine snub who some experts rate as a top five back.
After some early-season struggles, Farmer moved to center and started the last eight games of his senior year, giving up just one pressure.
DE Ryan Watson, Air Force ..If you remember 2 years ago the DOD changed their rule about guys being able to play in the NFL right before the draft— College2Pro.com (@BoMarchionte) March 7, 2019

Watson had a breakout year in 2018 with a career-high eight sacks.
Epps, a safety, is a four year starter who racked up 214 tackles and nine interceptions in his college career. His senior year was his least productive statistically (41 tackles, no interceptions) but he still graded out well.
Tony Pauline also had a detailed breakdown of Colorado and Colorado State's pro days. 6'4" wide receiver Preston Williams shined at the CSU pro day. Safety Evan Worthington shaved some time off his combine 40 before getting hurt, while receiver Juwann Winfree and linebacker Drew Lewis also did well.
Anthony Rush/DT/UAB did not participate in today's pro-day due to a foot he cut in training last week. He's expected to do a pro day in the near future in his home state of North Carolina. Some scouts have graded him as a top 15 defensive tackle.— Tony Pauline (@TonyPauline) March 7, 2019
