UW Pro Day wrapup

Pro Day is over here at UW.

Probably not much that really greatly changed the fortunes for anyone, though most of the UW players seemed happy with what they did — and those who were at the Combine seemed happier with what they did here than there.

We didn’t get official times, though we were able to get heights and weights and bench press reps.

Of the four Huskies who are likely to be drafted, here are their heights, weights and bench press number (reps of 225):

Chris Polk — 5-10.4, 212, 16
Senio Kelemete — 6-3.4, 309, 25
Alameda Ta’amu — 6-0.23, 347 (didn’t bench)
Jermaine Kearse — 6-0.1, 208 (didn’t bench)

The only 40 time of those that we were able to get is that of Polk, who said his best of two times was 4.45 hand-timed, and 4.49 electronic.

The fastest 40 time of those we heard was Quinton Richardson, who reported he ran a 4.35.

Here are the bench press rep numbers I got:

Cort Dennison — 25
Senio Kelemete — 25
Chris Polk — 16
Quinton Richardson — 19
Everrette Thompson — 26
Vonzell McDowell — 16
Victor Aiyewa — 34
E.J. Savannah — 17
Will Mahan — 25 (yes, 25)

Others did not bench.

Jake Locker was there and threw passes to receivers (only those without college eligibility can participate in a Pro Day). Didn’t see much really eventful there but it was fun to watch.

A few other notes:

— Polk has lost 12 pounds since the Senior Bowl when he was 224 and said he needed to get quicker and a little faster. He said he was happy with his quickness and agility today.

— Ta’amu is up nine pounds from last season and said he wanted to put on a little weight to be a nose tackle in a 3-4 defense.

— Kelemete is up about 19 pounds from where he played last season and said he was told by scouts to get a little bigger.

— Kearse said he’s done a few pounds from the season and feeling a little quicker. He ran a 4.58 at the Combine and said he felt faster today though he didn’t tell us his time. But he said he felt he showed scouts he can run faster.

— Dennison said he felt good about what he did and the general buzz is that he will definitely get a free agent shot.

— Richardson ran the fastest 40 of the times we got and the consensus was that will at least make teams take another look at his film.

Devin Aguilar also appeared to have a decent day and will at least get a free agent shot, according to the general consensus there.

Victor Aiyewa had the best bench press with 34 and again looked the part physically. He had a brief free agent look with Tampa Bay last year and is trying to get another this year and that number won’t hurt.

— Maybe the most intriguing of the former Huskies there was E.J. Savannah, trying to get back into football. I have some video of him (as well as a few other players) talking afterward and will pass that on.

Here is some video of analyst Rob Rang talking about the day:
