RB Summers impressive at UNLV Pro Day
Posted: March 5th, 2009 | NFL.com Staff | Tags: Brock Smith, Frank Summers, Rashad Jennings, UNLV

A good indication of whether a prospect may get drafted is if positional coaches show up to his Pro Day workout. That was the case for a pair of smaller school players this week.

At UNLV’s Pro Day, 14 players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf, in front of representatives for 16 teams. RB Frank Summers, who was not invited to the combine, got a positive sign because of the presence of Steelers running backs coach Kirby Wilson.

Summers checked in at 5-foot-9 1/8, 241 pounds and ran a 4.63-second and a 4.64-second 40-yard dash. He put up a 34.5-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 4-inch broad jump, a 4.35-second short shuttle, a 7.23-long shuttle and 30 bench press reps.

Another player benefitting from positional coaches coming to watch him work out was Liberty’s Rashad Jennings, who also opened eyes at the combine. He worked out Tuesday in front of six teams, including the Panthers and their RB coach Jim Skipper. He worked out on an indoor track. He weighed 231 pounds, ran a 4.52 in the 40 and a 6.79 in the three-cone drill.

QB Brock Smith used Liberty’s Pro Day to get his name out there as well. He was impressive in his workout and measured in at 6-1 7/8, 242 pounds. He ran 4.87 and 4.84 in the 40, 4.34 in the short shuttle, 7.12 in the three-cone drill and had a 29-inch vertical and a 8-foot, 8-inch broad jump.

Western Illinois’ Pro Day was on Monday and the player to watch was LB Jason Williams. He was one of 11 players working out (including one Arena Leaguer from the Iowa Barnstormers), in front of 14 teams.

He worked out on a wooden gym basketball floor and measured in at 6-1 1/4, 238 pounds. He ran the 40 in 4.49 and 4.52 seconds, had a 39-inch vertical jump and went 10-foot, 9-inches in the broad jump. His shuttle run times were not good, but the basketball floor was so slippery, it is not a good barometer of his ability
