DraftFix: Pro Days - North Carolina State, Tennessee, Temple, Syracuse

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

North Carolina State

The Wolfpack has a ton of draftable talent, led by potential top five pick Bradley Chubb, who shaved a couple of tenths off his short shuttle time at 4.18.

His with fellow defensive linemen BJ Hill, Kentavius Street and Justin Jones also impressed. Jones was said to look incredible in drills, while standing on his average combine numbers. Street was able to do drills after a combine hamstring injury.

Utility-man Jaylen Samuels told reporters that every team is viewing him as a "true running back" although he did do tight end drills too. He's been called a tight end or a full back in some circles due to his do-everything role in 2017. He looked good in drills but didn't improve his numbers.

Running back Nyheim Hines said he was keen to improve his bench press and his surprisingly-poor shuttle time at the pro day and managed to do so. He vastly improved his agility times from 4.35/7.18 to 4.21/6.85.

Offensive lineman Tony Adams, a combine snub, also worked out, drawing interest from some teams.


Running back John Kelly had a pretty poor combine but didn't run a 40-yard dash. He was reportedly timed unofficially at both 4.65 and 4.5 but said he was confident he posted a good time.

Rashaan Gaulden, who posted poor numbers at the combine, entertained the media by telling them the controversial gesture he made at fans last season was because he hates Alabama.

Other prospects getting plenty of attention were tight end Ethan Wolf and Eric Berry's brother, Evan. The younger Berry is a dynamic return man and he's making the move from defensive back to wide receiver to try and make it in the NFL.


The Jets always seem to have an eye on Temple, because that's Todd Bowles' alma mater. Their best prospect is probably Sean Chandler, who had a disappointing combine but shaved almost 0.1 seconds off his 4.65 40-yard dash time yesterday.

The fastest rising prospect is probably Jullian Taylor, who missed most of 2015 and 2016 with knee issues, but got a chance to play last year and excelled as a run-stopping tackle. Taylor ran a 4.8 40-yard dash at 293 pounds and also posted 29 bench press reps.

Fullback Nick Sharga was working out as a long snapper.


Most of the buzz at Toledo's pro day centered around Logan Woodside, who threw a session but didn't do any other drills. Defensive end Ola Adeniyi was told he improved on his 4.83 40-yard dash at the combine, where he claims he was dealing with a tight hamstring.


Wide receiver Steve Ishmael, a combine snub, and linebacker Zaire Franklin posted the fasted 40-time of the day at 4.58. Frankin also posted a 38" vertical and an impressive 30 bench press reps at 239. The Jets scout reportedly spent a lot of time with each of them.
