KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee’s NFL pro day is underway at the Neyland Thompson Sports Complex on campus.
Scouts have plenty of players to keep tabs on.
The Vols’ entire 2013 offensive line, much of their defensive line, a couple of experienced special-teamers and others will be working out.
In all 14 players are going through drills. The list is in the photo at above.
We’ll update the posts periodically with notes and quotes.
Here are some 40-yard dash times, according to UT: Alex Bullard (5.69 seconds), J.R. Carr (5.22), Mo Couch (5.32), Daniel McCullers (5.35), Rajion Neal (4.53), Michael Palardy (4.64), Dontavis Sapp (4.68), Jacques Smith (4.94) and Marlon Walls (5.07).
Bench-press reps at 225 pounds: Bullard, 31; Carr, 21; Couch, 31; McCullers, 27, Corey Miller, 33; Neal, 28; Sapp, 25; Smith, 27; Walls, 21.
Here are some offensive linemen numbers from the NFL combine for the sake of comparison.
In addition to the 14 players from the 2013 roster shown above, there are a few other former Vols going through workouts, including defensive backs Eric Gordon and Rod Wilks, defensive lineman Willie Bohannon and a handful of players from other local colleges.
Daniel McCullers is down to a svelte 348. Says he played at about 360 in 2013, would like to play in NFL at 335.
