Pro-Day 3/3: UTEP
UCLA running back Tyler Ebell

Posted Mar 3, 2006


Seventeen different teams sent scouts and representatives to El-Paso this afternoon to watch the Miners workout out. While the star of the team, Thomas Howard, chose to lean on his terrific combine numbers, there is breaking news on the linebacker. Here are the results.

Offensive lineman Josh House, a two year starter and All Conference selection, measured in at 6'-3 1/4" and 297 pounds. After completing 20 reps on the bench and turning in a 5.55-forty, House posted an impressive 4.72-second short shuttle. The Indianapolis Colts spoke individually with House as did members of the New England Patriots organization, who've been monitoring House all through the off-season.

Coming off an injury riddled and disappointing senior campaign, receiver Jayson Boyd was physically impressive this afternoon. Boyd measured 6'-3.5"/222 pounds and completed his forty in a time of 4.56 seconds. Boyd then touched 35.5-inches in the vertical and reached 10-feet in the broad jump. Boyd, known as a "me-first" players was late in getting to his running events and then proceeded to drop a bunch of passes during the workout.

One receiver who was impressive was the Miners second leading pass catcher, Chris Francies. Measuring just under 6-1 and weighing 193-pounds, Francies clocked a 4.52-forty then posted a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-6-inch broad. While those numbers were not out of the ordinary Francies pass catching workout was, as he caught everything thrown in his direction.

Former UCLA-back Tyler Ebell was bigger then expected, measuring 5'-8.5" and 182-pounds. Ebell completed 15-reps on the bench the ran a 4.57-forty. He finished up with a 34.5-vertical and 10-foot-1-inch broad jump.

Like Josh House, the Indianapolis Colts were actively pursuing Ebell.

Finally, though he did not partake in the physical activity today, Thomas Howard was a busy man interviewing with teams. None more so then the Jacksonville Jaguars who cornered the rising linebacker with three separate scouts.
