Here are this year's results:

Southern Methodist


One thing that's different than past years is the league now allows players to attend any Pro Day in a state where they live or go to school, provided the college where the Pro Day is held approves. Thus, at SMU, we had players from Colorado State, S.W. Oklahoma, Texas A&M Commerce and Texas College. Thanks to Schoen, Highsmith and Hall, SMU's Pro Day started on time and there were nine scouts in all. It was held at a great facility to run in and the temperature was 85 degrees. The players all ran on fast FieldTurf.

Rolando Humphrey DB Humphrey (5-9, 170), ran his 40s in 4.35 with wind and 4.45 against the wind. He benched 12 times, had a 37-inch vertical jump, 10-foot long jump, 10-yard time was 1.41, and 20-yard time was 2.50. He completed the short shuttle in 4.16.

Alvin Nnabuife DB Nnabuife (6-0 1/8 210) ran his 40s in 4.59 with wind and 4.65 against the wind. He did not do the bench. Nnabuife had a 40½-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-4 long jump, and ran 10 yards in 1.56 and 20 yards in 2.26.

***Without Starting a New Thread***

Can someone please explain how host teams are able to "set things up" so that home town boys might time better than just doing it at the combine? In other words, why not standardize the combine and make it mandatory and leave out Pro Days? Why do these exist?

the limitted number of players make it so that it's more personal. The Jags(scout linked article) had 3 different scouts interview Thomas Howard. To be quick, they can sit down and talk. At the combine it's more press conference like.

The times can be more favorable because like in St. Louis "the fastest show on turf" so there are more favorable surfaces(less too for that matter). They're familiar, comfy, and confident. The meat market that is the combine can make anyone nervous.

My understanding is that scouts prefer to see them when they're nervous in the spotlight like at the combine but if that's not a choice then....Sometimes pro days are 2nd chance, doublecheck, reaffirmation etc.
