Florida State University Proday Recap

Yesterday the Seminoles held their proday.

I can tell you though that another Fansided editor was in attendance and said that Bert Reed registered as low as 4.31 on a scout’s watch, and that the general consensus from scouts was that he was in the 4.35 40 yard dash range. Reed can fly. We all knew that. He’s undersized though and still a late day three or UDFA Type.

The winner of the proday, not surprisingly is LB Nigel Bradham. Bradham was a pretty good player with Florida State, but still disappointing because of how absolutely tremendous his raw physical abilities are. He oozes upside for any team looking for an athletic linebacker.

Here’s a recap of what happened From Tony Pauline

The Florida State workout was a bit of a snoozer compared to past events. Tackle Andrew Datko completed 20 reps on the bench press, normally not a good number for a 325-pound offensive tackle. But considering Datko missed most of the 2011 season with a shoulder injury, an ailment he’s suffered with for almost a year, it was a notable performance

Here’s a report from the Orlando Sentinel on some of the players draft stocks

“From what I was just told, I’ve helped my stock a lot,” Bradham said just after talking to scouts. “It’s pretty much just showing what I can do. Getting out of breaks and showing my quickness and speed.”

He didn’t participate in the timed speed drills, but did work out with others, including former FSU linebackers Nigel Carr and Kendall Smith, in agility and position-specific workouts. During his ball drill work, Bradham showcased his athleticism and ability to catch.

“I didn’t drop any balls,” he correctly said. “I heard people kept saying I couldn’t catch. So I was trying to just work on my hands a lot. Worked out with tennis balls and on the Jugs machine.”

Joining Bradham were offensive tackles Zebrie Sanders and Andrew Datko. The pair has spent the last two months training together in North Miami Beach. Both are represented by NFL power agent Drew Rosenhaus. Sanders said when he first signed, Rosenhaus made one unique request of him.

“My agent told me to put myself on Google Alerts, so I’m always getting Google Alerts on my phone,” Sanders said.

With the alerts, he gets sent to his phone and email links to any news stories that mention his name.

“It’s crazy seeing the negative and the positive stuff,” Sanders said. “I take it as a blessing, just trying to get better.”

Unlike Bradham, the projections on Sanders haven’t been as favorable of late.

He began the draft process as the Seminoles’ only first-round projection. Following serviceable performances in the Senior Bowl and Combine, he has fallen slightly, to just a second-round projection on some draft boards.
