Northwestern pro day results
Northwestern held its annual pro day Monday, and unlike most schools, NU released results from the events. Eight former players worked out before scouts representing 29 NFL teams.
A few notables:
- Defensive end Corey Wootton, projected as a second- to fourth-round selection, clocked a 4.93 and a 4.95 in the 40-yard dash. Wootton had a vertical leap of 32 inches and a broad jump of 9 feet. He ran the 20-yard shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the 3-cone drill in 7 seconds flat.
- Quarterback Mike Kafka reportedly wasn't as sharp with his passing Monday as he was at an earlier workout for scouts. Kafka recorded times of 4.81 seconds and 4.82 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He ran the 20-yard shuttle in 4 seconds flat.
- Wide receiver Andrew Brewer seems to be making a push for the draft. He recorded a vertical leap of 36.5 inches and a broad jump of 10 feet, 4 inches. He ran the 40 in 4.6 seconds and clocked at 6.72 seconds in the 3-cone drill.
- Cornerback Sherrick McManis, still recovering from a left quad strain, didn't participate in any of the running events. He recorded 15 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press.
