Combine Canes Shine in Indy
INDIANAPOLIS – Nine former University of Miami football players were among the 200-plus prospects that concluded their workouts at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium. 
Hurricanes Jamal Carter, Sr., Stacy Coley, Corn Elder, Danny Isidora, Rayshawn Jenkins, Brad Kaaya, Al-Quadin Muhammad, David Njoku and Justin Vogel each took part in the league’s primary scouting event. 
Isidora and Vogel highlighted Day 1 combine action on Friday, March 3, as both individuals posted strong performances. 
Isidora’s 5.03 40-yard dash time was the fifth-best time among offensive lineman. The Weston, Fla., native also finished in the top 10 of the bench press (26) and the vertical jump (29.0). Vogel’s 40-yard dash time (4.70) and vertical leap (34.0) were tops among all specialists. 
Njoku headlined Day 2 on Saturday, March 4 as he took part in six workouts and finished in the top 10 in every drill. His 11 foot, 1 inch leap in the broad jump was the second-best performance among tight ends and sixth-best among all competitors at the NFL Combine.
Day 2 action also saw Kaaya and Coley compete in several drills, earning strong praise from those in attendance. 
Coley’s time of 4.45 in the 40-yard dash was the 12th–best time among wide receivers. Kaaya participated in all the passing drills and connected on numerous deep, short and intermediate routes. 
Final day testing on Monday, March 6 featured Carter, Elder and Jenkins all of whom performed well to further enhance their draft status.
Jenkins and Carter both took part in the 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump and broad jump. Jenkins finished in the top 10 in each category for his position, including the bench where he and Carter each posted 19 reps of 225, which tied for third among safeties. Carter also cracked the top 10 in the vertical jump (35.0) and the broad jump (10-2).
Elder rounded out the Hurricane participants as he participated in the 40-yard dash where he ran a time of 4.55. 
Each of these Hurricanes will continue with their training over the next few months as they prepare for 2017 NFL Draft. The 82nd NFL Draft will be held April 27-29 in Philadelphia.
