Tales from IU Pro Day


Indiana held its Pro Day on Tuesday in Bloomington. It was closed to the media, the officials times haven’t leaked out yet, and I’m still trying to reach all the former IU players who were there but I’ve been able to figure out a few things so far and will have a full story later.

Offensive lineman Rodger Saffold didn’t participate in any of the drills he did in the combine, because he was confident in the times and measurements he posted there and didn’t want to risk injury or a dropoff. He did position specific drills as some of the offensive line coaches in attendance worked him out.

Defensive end Jammie Kirlew did all of his combine workouts again and showed some improvement across the board. His agent said he ran the 40 in the 4.8 range, a moderate improvement over a time in the 4.9 range at the combine. He also bench pressed 225 pounds 29 times, three more than he did at the combine.

Cornerback/kick returner Ray Fisher ran the fastest 40-yard dash time. Fisher said he posted times of 4.32 and 4.34 in his two runs. Another source said it was probably closer to 4.4 but it was still the best time by anyone at the pro day. Fisher also said he broad jumped 10 feet 2 inches and had a 38-inch vertical jump. Still looking for verification on those numbers.

Tight end Troy Wagner also had a good pro day, bench pressing 225 pounds 29 times. The 6-foot-5, 260-pounder probably won’t be drafted, but increased his chances of being invited to an NFL camp.

More info when I find it.
