Happy Friday everyone.
Pro Days for March 8: Arizona State, Cornell, Florida Atlantic, Florida International, Missouri State, Montana, Mount Union, Northern Illinois, Ohio State, Southern Mississippi, Texas A&M;, Wofford
Jonathan Cyprien, SS Florida International: Cyprien will be stating his case to be drafted in the late first round. He didn't participate in many drills at the combine due to injury, he'll be going through all the drills today though. Cyprien had a great Senior Bowl week, and he'll be looking to carry that momentum through his pro day. Some mock drafts have had Cyprien going to the 49ers, so pay attention to how he does today. Check Out Tre's scouting report on Cyrpien here.
Jasper Collins, WR Mount Union: Collins comes from a Division III school that has produced Cecil Shorts and Pierre Garcon. Collins put up some insane numbers this season. 92 receptions for 1,694 yard and 22 touchdowns. Collins had a great week of practices in preparation for the East-West Shrine game. He didn't receive a combine invite and that's unfortunate. It will be interesting to find out if any 49ers scouts attend the pro day.
Johnathan Hankins, DT Ohio State: Hankins looked good at the combine and I have no doubt he'll have a good day today. For a 6'3" 320 lb man, Hankins can move surprisingly well. A great run stuffer and lane clogger, Hankins will be a first round selection. He's a legitimate option for the 49ers if he's still on the board at pick 31.
Jamie Collins, OLB Southern Miss: Collins name was remembered after the combine. He had a 4.64 forty and the best vertical jump (41.5 inches). Collins projects as a 3-4 outside linebacker.
Luke Joeckel, OT Texas A&M;: Joeckel is trying to fend off Central Michigan's Eric Fisher for the first lineman selected in the draft. Most consider Joeckel the best player in the draft and likely to go to the Chiefs first overall.
Damontre Moore, LB Texas A&M;: Moore had a really bad combine. Mel Kiper had him in his top 5 best players before the combine, and removed him from his top 25 big board after. He now could be a late first round selection. This pro day is very important for him, he can do a lot today to boost his stock back up.
Ryan Swope, WR Texas A&M;: Swope had an excellent combine, posting a 4.34 forty and looking crisp in drills. Swope isn't just a speedster, he has yards after contact abilitty and is a good blocker. Swope had 23 catches of 15+ yards and 12 catches of 25+ yards this season. He's a very intriguing mid round option, Swope could turn out to be a steal.
