The Memphis Tigers football team held their Pro Day Wednesday giving a chance for the three NFL Draft Combine participants to improve on their workouts, and to show more than half of the NFL teams in attendance what Memphis football players can do.
The three Tigers who had already shown their skills in Indianapolis - defensive end Martin Ifedi, cornerback Bobby McCain, and offensive lineman Al Bond - were satisfied with their workouts. McCain says he's been getting looks from plenty of NFL teams, and has already met with several. Ifedi worked in some linebacker drills because scouts wanted to see if he could drop back into coverage effectively.
Of the Tiger seniors looking to lock up a free agent deal or maybe a late-pick, Charles Harris showed his size by weighing in at 6-foot-3, 239 pounds. Harris said scouts are impressed with his size for an inside linebacker. Speaking of size, big 6-foot-1, 292 pound defensive tackle Terry Redden was keen to prove that any NFL system would fit him and said he'll play anywhere coaches want him.
On the offensive side of the ball Brandon Hayes stressed his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, saying with he was satisfied with his workout because he didn't drop a single pass.
The NFL Draft is between April 30th to May 2nd. Bobby McCain is projected by CBSSports to get drafted in the 7th round, while Ifedi and Bond are fringe 7th round picks according to the site.
