Football Holds Annual Pro Timing Day|
March 2, 2012
CINCINNATI – The most recent University of Cincinnati football senior class returned to campus Friday, working out for NFL scouts from 28 of the league’s 32 teams in the Sheakley Athletic Center.
Zach Collaros, Reuben Haley, Steve Hancock, Tomaz Hilton, Randy Martinez, Wesley Richardson, Adrien Robinson, Monte Taylor, Rob Trigg and D.J. Woods took part in the workout. Isaiah Pead and Derek Wolfe were on hand for measurements and took part in position drills.
Robinson created the most buzz on the day, starting with his 39.5 inch vertical jump and his leap of 11-3 in the broad jump. He followed that up with 40-yard dash times of 4.51 and 4.58 unofficially, not bad for someone who measured in at 6-4 and 264 pounds. The tight end from Indianapolis, Ind. clocked 4.37 in the 20-yard shuttle, 11.59 in the 60-yard shuttle and 7.11 in the 3-cone drill.
Despite his injury, Hughes ripped off 29 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press, improving on his NFL Combine number of 28 and setting the best mark of the day. Schaffer finished with 26 reps, Davis had 24, Collaros and Hancock pushed 22, Martinez had 21 and Richardson finished with 20.
Woods ran the 40 at a 4.48 and 4.52 clip unofficially while Haley timed in at 4.50 and 4.53 and Collaros finished with a 4.70 and 4.76.
The wideout from Strongsville, Ohio had the second highest vertical jump at 37 inches and had the top time in the 3-cone drill (6.69) and 60-yard shuttle (11.46). Collaros posted the top mark in the 20-yard shuttle at 4.27.
Following the timing drills, Hancock, Taylor, Trigg and Wolfe took part in defensive line drills led by Cincinnati Bengals DL coach Jay Hayes.
UC Offensive coordinator Mike Bajakian put Collaros through a throwing workout to close out the Pro Day. Collaros threw a litany of passes to Woods, Pead, Robinson and former UC standouts Armon Binns and Vidal Hazelton.
