Links For Iowa has its own Pro Day


Iowa Pro Day

Iowa held its first of two Pro Days yesterday with representatives of all 32 NFL teams in attendance. The session was closed to the media (as is everything with Iowa), but there has been some information leaking out of individual performances and has a bunch of photos. has some stats from some of the Hawkeyes notable players and says that Stanzi and Clayborn both improved their draft stock. Here are the listed stats:
  • Adrian Clayborn: vertical jump - 35.5", broad jump - 9'6", short shuttle - 7.08, 225 bench - 17 reps.
  • Ricky Stanzi: 40-yard dash - 4.93, vertical jump - 34", broad jump - 9'7", short shuttle - 4.56, 3-cone drill - 7.23, 225 bench - 16 reps.
  • Christian Ballard: 40-yard dash - 4.70, vertical jump - 34", broad jump - 9'7", short shuttle - 4.56, 3-cone drill - 7.23, 225 bench - 16 reps.
  • Karl Klug: 40-yard dash - 4.81, vertical jump - 29.5", broad jump - 9'5", short shuttle - 4.60, 3-cone drill - 7.01, 225 bench - 21 reps.
  • Julian Vandervelde: 40-yard dash - 5.09, vertical jump - 30", broad jump - 9'0", short shuttle - 4.44, 3-cone drill - 7.14, 225 bench - 25 reps.
  • Tyler Sash: 40-yard dash - 4.61, vertical jump - 33", broad jump - 9'4", 225 bench - 14 reps.

Clayborn and Sash both tweeted about having successful workouts:

Pro day went great! Got better personal records in everything I did. Dline drills and linebacker drills went pretty good.Thanks for support!less than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

Improved in everything at Proday. #GBNBless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPhone

From what I can tell, nobody hurt their stock today. Ballard and Vandervelde both took about 0.10 seconds off of their 40 times. Other times were pretty consistent to what was done at the combine. The only thing that I think was a little disappointing is Klug's 40 time. I know he was trying to go sub-4.70 to position himself as a speed guy since he lacks the size to realistically play DT in the NFL.

DJK had his own Pro Day

Stricken from the Iowa Pro Day, DJK got creative and held his own Pro Day immediately following the official one. Though the actual workouts were closed to the media, DJK did speak with The Gazette's Scott Dochterman afterwards.

The National Football Post listed DJK's numbers and there is a good breakdown of how those compare with other receivers in this year's draft on Hawkeye Drive. Here are his workout stats:
  • 40 yard dash - 4.50
  • 225 bench - 21 reps
  • Vertical jump - 34.5"
  • Broad jump - 9'10"
  • Short shuttle - 4.42
  • 3-cone drill - 6.92
