Day Two of Pro Days finds us in Cincinnati, Ohio at the Bearcats facility for testing and results. 28 of the NFL’s 32 teams were in attendance including our Buffalo Bills. The Bearcats had three players workout in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine and for the most part those players stood on their combine times and choose not to participate in testing, but did participate in positional drills.
QB Zach Collaros
40 Time: 4.70
Bench Reps: 22
Collaros is a bit of an undersized QB prospect who came on strong in relief of Tony Pike a few years ago but never was quite able to live up to expectations after that. He’s a system QB who struggled outside of Brian Kelly’s system but still put up some really nice numbers. He also has some durability concerns that also could lower his value.
Right now we rank Collaros as the #29 QB in this class and that’s based on how productive he was while at Cincinatti more than on his potential NFL value. In the end we think the CFL may be a better fit for Collaros who has a solid arm and athleticism. However it wouldn’t shock us to see him get a shot in a NFL camp first.
WR DJ Woods
Weight: 180 lbs.
40 Time: 4.42
Bench Reps: 9
Vertical Jump: 37”
Woods is an interest prospect because many people thought he had the potential to really develop with Collaros and become a dynamic WR but it just never happened. He finished third this year on the team in receptions and its really hurt his NFL stock.
Right now we have Woods as a camp invite for a team looking to add a sure handed slot option at WR. He runs solid routes but isn’t explosive enough to gain consistent separation. He’s also not big enough at only 180 lbs. to handle the press coverage he’ll see if he lined up outside.
TE Adrian Robinson
Weight: 267 lbs.
40 Time: 4.51
Bench Press Reps: 15
Vertical Jump: 39.5″
Broad Jump: 11’3″
Short Shuttle: 4.40
3 Cone Drill: 7.01
Now I’m sure there are lots of people out there saying “who?” well this was the sleeper we have been talking about since earlier in the day. He is a big TE who was somewhat out of place in the Cincy spread offense. He is very raw coming out and is a converted WR who was rated as a 3 star leaving HS. He was recruited by schools all over the place include SEC schools like Ole Miss.
Robinson is a very good pass catching TE who will need plenty of coaching and patience when it comes to seeing consistent playing time. Right now we rank him as a UDFA but we thing he’s a guy who should get snatched up quickly once the draft ends. Its also interesting to note that despite having only 12 catches this year, three of them were for TD’s. That should tell you he knows how to use his size. If you don’t believe watch this quick video of him;
Also wanted to note that LB JK Schaffer did not run due to a hamstring injury he’ll run later this month.
There are no Pro Days this weekend so we’ll pick this up again on Monday!
