CORAL GABLES, Fla. - Scouting personnel for 30 NFL teams and two CFL teams ascended upon the University of Miami's Hecht Athletic Center for UM's Pro Timing Day held Thursday. Seventeen athletes participated in drills, including 12 Miami Hurricanes seniors.
UM Pro Day began at noon, shortly after the Miami Hurricanes concluded their fourth spring practice and final session prior to Spring Break. Hurricanes players also entertained the NFL scouts while shooting a Harlem Shake video that is expected to drop soon.
Before workouts began, participants underwent physical testing in the weight room for height, weight, vertical jump, broad jump and 225-pound rep test. The second portion of UM's Pro Day featured the 40-yard dash, 20- and 60-yard shuttle runs, L drills and position drills.
Several familiar faces dotted the sideline at GreenTree for UM's Pro Day, including alums Olivier Vernon, Sean Spence, Brandon Washington, Travis Benjamin, Darryl Sharpton, Jacory Harris and Graig Cooper.
S Vaughn Telemaque recorded the highest vertical jump at 36 inches. WR Kendal Thompkins had the second-highest leap at 35 inches, while both LB Ramon Buchanan and Brandon McGee posted 34-inch jumps.
DL Darius Smith was the lone participant to break the 30-rep plateau, recording 33 reps of 225 pounds. The next closest mark was OL Jeremy Lewis, who tallied 27 reps. Buchanan had the third-best performance at 20 reps.
Both RB Mike James and DB Brandon McGee took their official NFL Combine 40 times. Thursday's best 40 time came from WR Kendal Thompkins, who was officially clocked at 4.37. Buchanan recorded a 4.55 and DB Andrew Swasey came in at 4.66.
Buchanan tallied a UM Pro Day-best broad jump of 10 feet, 8 inches. Thompkins came in second at 10 feet, 4 inches.
