DE Ayers does full workout at Tennessee pro day

After running an impressive 4.77 at the NFL combine it was assumed Robert Ayers wouldn’t do a full workout at Tennessee’s pro day Wednesday, but he did everything again. That according to NFLDraftScout.com.

That reportedly went over well with NFL scouts, knowing Ayers didn’t have much more to prove. Don’t have times and figures yet on his workout to see if he improved anywhere, but here’s what he had to say courtesy of WVLT-TV in Knoxville.

“I wanted to come out and show that I’m athletic enough to play in space and that I’ve got good hips and flexibility,” said Ayers. “From talking to the coaches, they feel like I did a good job. Every coach I talked to said they liked what they saw.”

Gotta like this kid’s approach to the game. Some having him going late first round now.

The news was not as positive for Oklahoma St. TE Brandon Pettigrew who bypassed working out due to a hamstring injury. He is going to reschedule and have a personal pro day in two weeks or so in an effort to improve his 40 time at the combine (4.85).
