News and notes from Pro Day

If you’re wondering why there wasn’t a story on Monday’s “Pro Day” at Alex G. Spanos Stadium, it’s because there wasn’t much to report.
A handful of Cal Poly football players, along players from various other FCS/I-AA teams out West, were on hand but few participated in all the drills.
Kyle Shotwell ran some shuttle stuff and made one pass at the 40-yard dash, but opted out of his second pass because he felt a twinge in his left hamstring.
It wasn’t a big deal, just Shotwell being cautious given he hasn’t been running a whole lot since his emergency appendectomy following the East-West Shrine game.
I overheard a couple of scouts saying he ran about a 4.5. That’s better than a lot of running backs at the combine, which Cal Poly’s senior linebacker and Buchanan Award winner was not invited to.
Kenny Chicoine, Randy Samuel, Anthony Randolph and Chris White also participated. Nick Coromelas punted for the scouts and Courtney Brown came out but did not run.
Some of the scouts were disappointed Brown didn’t compete, but the Mustangs’ senior corner didn’t have much to prove after turning in some eye-popping numbers at a pro day in San Jose earlier this year.
He ran a 4.32 up there. He’s going down to the Home Depot Center to run through some position drills later this week.
Hopefully there will be more to report later this week. I’ll probably be writing something about the scouting/draft process this weekend.

There was a lot that happened in the gym such as bench press and broad
jump and vertical leap.

Where is a summary of the pro day results?

Everything done in the gym and in the weight room was off limits to the media. The numbers also were not made public for the media, hence no summary of the results. Hopefully individual marks make their way on to the various NFL scouting sites.
