From Grambling Sports Information:
GRAMBLING, La. | Grambling State University held its annual football Pro Day at Eddie G. Robinson Memoria Stadium on Tuesday morning in front of scouts representing 15 teams from the National Football League.
“I thought it was a good day,” Grambling State head football coach Broderick Fobbs said. “This was a tremendous opportunity for these young men and to get an opportunity to perform in front of these scouts is always good.”
Fourteen former Grambling State student-athletes went through a two-hour workout in front of NFL scouts on Tuesday. Those student-athletes who participated in the NFL Pro Day included, defensive tackle Linwood Banks, offensive lineman Darrell Brown, cornerback Trevaun Calahan, safety Percy Cargo, Jr., linebacker De’Arius Christmas, defensive end La’Allan Clark, defensive tackle Rodney Jackson, wide receiver Devohn Lindsey, kicker Marc Orozco, wide receiver Calief Samon, safety Jaylon Terrell, defensive end Brandon Varner, defensive end Caleb Wells and linebacker Malcolm Williams. In addition, Je’Kevin Carter from Arkansas-Pine Bluff also participate din the event.
Scouts from 15 NFL teams were on hand to observe as the players went through measurements, bench press, vertical and broad jumps, 40-meter dash, cone drills and position drills.
Players will continue to train in hopes of being drafted, signing as a free agent or being invited to a franchise’s mini-camp. The 2019 NFL Draft takes place April 25-27 in Nashville, Tenn.
Last year, Grambling State did not have a player selected in the NFL Draft, but did have players sign free-agent contracts. Montrel Meander signed with the Cleveland Browns and was later traded during the season to the Oakland Raiders. Martez Carter signed with the Washington Redskins, but ended the season with the New Orleans Saints. Most notably and received quality playing time was offensive lineman Trent Scott. Scott signed with the Los Angeles Chargers and continued to be a key member on the offensive line during the season.
In addition to the three members from last season, Grambling State has two members currently with NFL teams – Chester Rogers (Indianapolis Colts) and Chad Williams (Arizona Cardinals).
