The Road to the NFL: Jack Corcoran's Draft Blog #6

Written by Jack Corcoran on 03/12/2010

My big day finally arrived this past Wed. I wasn't nervous to work out at the Rutgers Pro-Timing Day for the scouts. I was excited to show what I could do.

After not being invited to the Scouting Combine, I was excited to show the coaches, general managers and scouts my abilities.

Some of the scouts who attended the pro-day at Rutgers said I had a really strong workout. Here are my numbers:

I bench-pressed 225-pounds 30 times. I ran the 40 in 4.73. My  vertical jump was 36.5 inches and my broad jump was 9 feet, 10 inches.

I ran the 60-yd shuttle in 11.84 seconds, the three-cone in 7.05 seconds and did the short shuttle in 4.25 seconds.

My agent, Rob Roche, told me he had some great conversations with running backs coaches and scouts in attendance at the Pro-Day. I hope I proved myself worthy of a draft-pick when the Draft rolls around in April.

The other great part about my Pro-Day was seeing the guys who I played with at Rutgers. It was awesome to see Devin McCourty and Tim Brown and all the other guys. I am glad all the Scarlet Knight guys are doing great.

The other thing that was cool about our pro-timing day was that it was streamed on the Internet. I've heard from a bunch of people who watched it. Streaming the workout on the Web is a real innovative process.

Lets also take a comparison of Jack against what some of the FBs who were invited to the combine did
