Pro-Day: Notes from 3/5
Tully Banta-Cain Impresses
Tully Banta-Cain Impresses

Posted Mar 6, 2003

A few more results are filtering in from what was a very busy pro-day on this Wednesday, as we prepare for an even more hectic schedule tomorrow. Here are a few notes which will be updated through tomorrow.

A total of 25 teams were present at South Carolina's pro-day according to our friends at Gamecock Insider and the early star of the day was quarterback/safety Corey Jenkins who ran a 4.41.

The California seniors also timed for scouts today and defensive end/outside linebacker Tully Banta-Cain impressed with the following numbers: 4.62-40, 4.19-20 yard shuttle, 11.21 -60 yard shuttle and a 6.71 in the three cone run. Banta Cain also had jumps of 33-inches in the vertical and 9-6 in the broad.

North Dakota State defender Leif Murphy worked out earlier in the week for both the Bills and Broncos measuring in at 6-2.5 inches, 262 pounds then timing 4.81 and 4.78 in the forty and jumping 33.5 inches in the vertical and 9-feet 4-inches in the broad. Murphy, a pass rushing linebacker in college who rarely lined up in anything other than three-point stance, is projected to stand over tackle in a three-four alignment at the next level.

We received an unconfirmed report that Kent State defensive tackle Roy Attieh weighed in at 6-1.5 inches and 305-pounds, running a 4.92 forty with a 26.5 vertical and benching 225-pounds 26 times. Attieh should be watched as he's an explosive interior defender we've liked and a solid run stuffer who plays bigger than his size.

Speaking of those to watch, Stanford's Trey Freeman was often overlooked as heralded teammate Matt Leonard stole the headlines, though many considered Freeman the better player at times. Getting ready for his pro-day later this month, Freeman has reportedly been turning in times of 4.88 in the forty and hit 30 reps on the bench.

Finally, Memphis had its' pro-day today, though it was of no consequence. Highly rated Wade Smith did not work out but did drill. The location had to be switched to a local fitness center rather than the school's facility. This is nothing new as many remember our story on the MSU pro-day in 2002...when they could not find any cones for the cone drills and used old sneakers as a substitute.
