Tennessee State's Robert Myers a potential late-round draft pick

Print

Tennessee State held its pro day on March 10 and representatives from 12 NFL teams, including a defensive backs coach from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, were on hand for the event.

Seventeen players worked out on FieldTurf inside the school's nice indoor facility, which is about two years old.

Offensive lineman Robert Myers (6-foot-5, 324 pounds), who competed at the NFL Scouting Combine, had a 26 1/2-inch vertical and a 7-foot-6 broad jump at the pro day. He has 34-inch arms. He did not bench-press because he had a right pectoral injury. Myers participated in position drills and he moves very well for such a big guy. Because of his size and long arms, Myers probably will be drafted in the sixth or seventh round.

Free safety Daniel Fitzpatrick (6-0 7/8, 207) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.72 and 4.74 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. He completed the short shuttle in 4.40 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.01 seconds. He had 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Fitzpatrick's 2014 campaign was not as good as his 2013 season. He had some injuries in 2014 that kept his production down, but he had a good pro-day workout. A team will bring him to camp as a free agent.
