ALEDO (March 29, 2016) – Nine former Tarleton football standouts worked out in front of NFL scouts for a Pro Day on Tuesday.
Le’Nard Meyers, Savion Washington, Malcolm McDuffen, Nick Perez, Isaac Arellano, Blake Barnes, Clifton Rhodes III, Ronnie Faimoa, and Dante Rollins all participated in the NFL workouts that included the 40-yard dash, bench press, vertical jump, broad jump, shuttle run, and 3 cone drill.
NFL teams in attendance were the Carolina Panthers, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Rams, Atlanta Falcons, and San Diego Chargers.
“Pro day is great not just for our former players, but also for our football program,” said Assistant Football Coach Jonathan Beasley, who was at the Pro Day. “It allows them to showcase their talents that they have worked on for the past 4 or 5 years. It’s great seeing the guys come back to participate as well as seeing former players come back to support their teammates participating.”
The 2016 NFL draft takes place on Thursday, April 28 and runs through Saturday, April 30. Players not drafted are eligible to sign free agent contracts with any franchise.
