PROVO, Utah (Mar. 9, 2011) - Eight former Cougars with hopes of making the NFL jumped, lifted and ran for NFL scouts on BYU's annual Pro Day on Wednesday.
Wide receiver Luke Ashworth, defensive back Brandon Bradley, defensive back Brian Logan, linebacker Zeke Mendenhall, kicker Mitch Payne, safety Andrew Rich, defensive lineman Vic So'oto and offensive lineman Jason Speredon ran through drills for over two hours.
With family, friends and former teammates looking on, the eight players each tested their vertical jump and bench press before heading over to the Indoor Practice Facility for various drills.
Once there, the NFL hopefuls ran the 40, competed in shuttle drills and caught passes thrown by one of the scouts.
The 2011 NFL Draft will run Apr. 28-30 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
