Syracuse pro day today

Posted by Chris Brown on March 7, 2013 – 10:45 am


Syracuse will conduct their pro day today for their draft prospects. Obviously QB Ryan Nassib will be the headliner, but there are a few other draft worthy prospects working out in the Salt City today.

Nassib along with OT Justin Pugh, WR Alec Lemon and S Shamarko Thomas are all expected to participate to some degree along with the other graduating players for the Orange.

Nassib will likely be looking to improve on his 40 time at the Combine, which was a pedestrian 5.06, the second slowest among QBs that ran in Indy. He’s also likely to want to improve his broad jump, which in Indy was 8’9″. He didn’t bench at the Combine (most QBs do not) and probably won’t today.

For Pugh he may also want to improve on some numbers he put up at the Combine. He did not bench at the Combine so barring an injury he’s expected to bench at today’s pro day.

Lemon needs to improve on his Combine numbers today after a 40 time of 4.59 and just seven reps on the bench.

The only Combine participant from Syracuse that’s likely to stick with most of his numbers is S Shamarko Thomas, who had a great workout in Indy. He ran a 4.42 40 time, which was the fastest among the safety group. He had the best vertical among the safeties at 40.5 inches, the most reps on the bench by far with an impressive 28 and had the second-longest broad jump at 11’2″.
