      NFL Scouts in Conway for CCU Pro Day

      Six NFL scouts attended CCU Pro Day.

      Scouts from six different NFL teams were in Conway, South Carolina to evaluate 20 football players on Thursday morning at Coastal Carolina's Pro Day.

      The Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos, and Jacksonville Jaguars tested athletes for speed, strength and intelligence.

      Former Coastal Carolina cornerback Marcus Lott, who was cut by the Jets during training camp last season, had the best broad jump of the day with a leap of 10 feet, two inches. Lott also clocked a 4.56 time in the forty yard dash, and had a 35 inch vertical jump. All three are solid numbers according to pro scouts.

      Ex-CCU running back Eric O'Neal was the fastest Chanticleer in camp. He ran a forty time of 4.53. O'Neal also tied for the best vertical jump at 36 inches. The fastest player at the CCU Pro Day was Furman running back Jerodis Williams. He clocked in at 4.47.

      On the bech press, Coastal Carolina center Pat Williams did 23 repetitions of 225 pounds. Newberry's Apollo Stretch had the best bench of the day with 30 reps, followed by Andrew Power from North Texas with 25.

      The NFL Draft will be held from April 25-27.
