G Asamoah has solid pro day

Posted by Chris Brown on April 8, 2010 – 3:04 pm

Illinois guard Jon Asamoah, who could not participate at the NFL combine because of a fractured shoulder blade suffered at the Senior Bowl in practice, had his pro day today.

TFYDraftInsider provided the following report.
Two dozen teams were on hand at Illinois today including nine offensive line coaches to watch guard Jon Asamoah workout.  His pro-day ended just minutes ago.

Asamoah surprised those in attendance with his athleticism and movement skills.  His forty was timed as fast as 5.04 seconds while his short shuttle clocked 4.51 seconds.  Asamoah’s vertical jump was 27-inches and broad 8’11’’.

He completed 22-reps on the bench press, not a great number but one must take into consideration Asamoah resumed bench pressing for the first time last week since initially injuring his shoulder blade at the Senior Bowl the week of January 25th.

Later in the workout Asamoah looked terrific in position drills.  He’ll now battle Mitch Petrus of Arkansas to be the second guard off the board in two weeks.

Asamoah was part of our Draft Profile series on Buffalobills.com.
