ACC pro days watch

Eight more ACC schools have completed their pro days. Here is a look at some of the highlights:

BOSTON COLLEGE

  • Twelve former Eagles participated during the Eagles' pro day.

  • Representatives from 12 different teams were there, including the Patriots and Saints.

  • Linebacker Nick Clancy, who was unable to attend the NFL scouting combine because of a broken arm, was satisfied with his performance, telling the MetroWest Daily News, "It’s something you train for three months for. I’ve been doing nothing but working out and eating right, and getting my body right for this day, so I think I did well and hopefully the scouts thought I did well, too."

FLORIDA STATE

GEORGIA TECH

  • Eight Jackets participated. The top two draft prospects -- TJ Barnes and Rod Sweeting -- did not run the 40 again, choosing to stand on their numbers from the combine. There are still some concerns about Barnes' weight.

  • Quarterback Tevin Washington says he will play any position in the NFL. He ran a 4.63 in the 40-yard dash.

  • Offensive linemen Omoregie Uzzi did only the bench press as he recovers from an injury. He was able to lift 225 pounds 22 times.

MARYLAND

  • Fourteen former Terps participated in pro day.

  • Tight end Matt Furstenburg, who has seen his draft stock rise over the past month, did not participate in the testing portion because of solid numbers from the combine. He ran the 40 in 4.62 seconds, third among tight ends. Furstenburg also placed third in the vertical jump (35.5 inches), fifth in the 20-yard shuttle (4.35) and fourth in the 60-yard shuttle (11.76) at his position. He did do some field drills.

NC STATE

  • All eyes were on quarterback Mike Glennon and cornerback David Amerson. Glennon stood on his numbers from the combine, but did participate in field drills. He impressed at least one draft analyst with his performance at pro day.

  • Amerson only did the vertical (38.5) and long jumps (11).

  • C.J. Wilson ran the fastest 40 time on the day, a sprint of 4.33.

  • Earl Wolff has peaked at the right time. He stood on all his numbers from the combine except the vertical (36).

VIRGINIA

  • Tackle Oday Aboushi, expected to be the top Cav taken in the draft, improved on the numbers he posted at the combine in the bench press and 40. He had 21 reps at 225 and ran the 40 in about 5.3. Aboushi told The Daily Progress, "I didn’t put up the numbers I wanted to (at the combine). The schedule was a little rough on me. I didn’t bench as well as I thought I was going to do. ... I could kind of redeem myself at pro day. I definitely had something to prove at pro day."

VIRGINIA TECH

  • All workouts were closed to the media, so not much data is available about how the former Hokies in attendance performed.

  • Offensive tackle Vinston Painter only did position drills for the scouts, happy with his numbers from the combine.

  • Linebacker Bruce Taylor, on the other hand, did everything but the bench press. He believes he improved on his 40 time, which was an eyebrow-raising 5.01 seconds.

WAKE FOREST

  • Eight former Deacs participated.

  • Fullback Tommy Bohanon has the best shot at getting drafted. He chose to stand on the numbers he posted at the combine in the bench press (36 reps at 225), vertical and broad jumps. According to NFL.com, Bohanon ran the 40 in 4.76 and 4.79 to improve on his combine time of 4.88. Bohanon told The Winston-Salem Journal, "I didn’t do anything on the inside with the bench press, but I did all the drills out here, and I improved a little, so that was good."
