- Panthers HC John Fox attended Georgia Tech's Pro Day and we can only assume that means they are looking at DE Michael Johnson and DT's Vance Walker and Daryl Richards. Johnson was impressive but both Walker and Richard were limited by injuries.
Georgia Tech DE Michael Johnson was one of the hottest names at the pro day. Johnson, who has been projected as high as a middle to late first-round pick in mock drafts, looked very good working out as a down lineman and a linebacker. He showed he could drop into coverage and play in space.
Johnson measured in at 6-foot-6 7/8 and 266 pounds, and he had 40-yard dash times of 4.61 and 4.64 seconds. He did 23 repetitions on the bench press at 225 pounds, and he turned in a time of 7.42 seconds in the three-cone drill. He did not participate in the vertical jump or the 20- or 60-yard shuttle.
- Panthers DC Ron Meeks attended the Utah Pro Day:
- Panthers GM Marty Hurney attended TCU's Pro Day:
Schlueter (6-2 3/8, 290 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds, had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-3-inch long jump, a 4.28-second short shuttle, and a 7.42-second three-cone drill.
- Unfortunately this Pro Day blog doesn't list which teams attended each Pro Day but I'm pretty sure they attended the Missouri Pro Day:
Defensive tackle Evander ‘Ziggy' Hood kept his 40 time from the combine, but did do the other drills. He ran the short shuttle in 4.45 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.32 seconds. He had 35 reps in the bench press, jumped 34 1/2 inches in the vertical and leaped 9-feet, 8-inches in the broad jump.
I'm keep you posted as more details emerge.
