DraftFix: Pro Days - Georgia Tech, Nevada, Oregon State

Over the next month we'll be updating you on how draft prospects are faring at most of the main pro day workouts.

Georgia Tech

Ricky Jeune is probably the Yellow Jacket prospect with the best chance of being drafted and was said to have done well in pass-catching drills after having run a 4.5 40-yard dash. He's another in a long line of big, athletic receivers whose production was hurt by playing in a triple option offense with hardly any passing.

Defensive end Antonio Simmons was one of the players who made a good impression. His 30 bench press reps would have placed eighth best at the combine and he ran 4.45 at 246 pounds; 15 pounds higher than his playing weight during the season.

Guard Shamire Devine is big and very raw but had to have opened eyes with his extraordinary length. They had to remove a ceiling tile to set up his vertical jump.


Austin Corbett is a fast-rising interior line prospect who may be a day two pick and Jets offensive line coach Rick Dennison was there to watch him carry out position drills in the snow. He opted to stick with his combine numbers which were pretty good apart from a disappointing bench press.

Oregon State

Running back Ryan Nall was the only Beaver invited to the combine and he posted pretty good numbers to quiet concerns that he isn't athletic enough to play halfback at the NFL level. He managed to shave 0.05 off his 40-time, down to 4.53 and added an inch to his vertical jump (34") moving both from below average to average.

Linebacker Hanase Hungalu is one of the Beavers better non-combine invitees. He posted 21 bench press reps and a 32.5" vertical.
