Kevin Colbert was not in Ohio State right now, the usual quit on his Pro Day circuit. We now know why. He was a couple hours away, spending the day in South Bend for Notre Dame’s exercise. And he wasn’t the only 1. The following members of the group had been spotted watching the Fighting Irish prospects: defensive assistant Teryl Austin, College Scouting Coordinator Phil Kreidler, and Player Personnel Director Dan Rooney Jr.
Here’s Austin taking cornerback Julian Really like by means of 1 of the drills.
And here’s Rooney and Kreidler in the background, watching receiver Miles Boykin operate out.
Boykin is the initially identified prospect who will come in for a pre-draft go to with the group. He blew up the Combine, operating a four.43, jumping 43.five inches in the vertical, and 10’7″ in the broad, all whilst weighing in at almost 6’4 and 220 pounds.
Really like is a strong Day Two candidate who could be in the cards for the group at choose #52 or #66, offered that corner is slightly significantly less of a require soon after signing Steven Nelson in totally free agency. He picked off 5 profession passes for the Irish with 39 breakups.
Also operating out and of interest to the group integrated ILB Te’von Coney, a possibly Day 3 choice with 313 tackles to his name. There’s also ILB Druq Tranquill, a converted security who tested properly with 25.five profession TFL.
Although I know it does not imply substantially, and definitely is attainable to alter this year, Colbert has only drafted 1 Notre Dame player because operating the group. That was Stephon Tuitt, the Steelers’ second round choose in 2014 and what turned out to be a quite great choice.
