Representatives from 15 NFL teams, including an assistant coach from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, were present for Tennessee State's pro day on March 10.


» 2015 pro days schedule, results and analysis


Offensive guard Robert Myers (6-foot-5, 324 pounds) had a 26 1/2-inch vertical jump and 7-foot-8 broad jump, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He was not able to do the bench press due to a right pectoral injury. Myers was impressive at the pro day, moving around well for a man his size and displaying a good punch.

Safety Daniel Fitzpatrick (6-0 7/8, 207) ran the 40 in 4.72 and 4.74 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-1 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.4 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.01 seconds. He performed 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Fitzpatrick's speed isn't ideal, but he moves around well and has real good ball skills. His three-cone time is good and eases some concern over his not quite as quick 40 time. Fitzpatrick could be a free-agent pickup possibility for a team following the 2015 NFL Draft.

Offensive tackle Anthony Morris (6-7 1/8, 303) ran the 40 in 5.33 and 5.27 seconds. He had a 27 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.87 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.59 seconds. Morris -- who has 32 3/4-inch arms -- performed 25 strength lifts. Morris had a nice pro-day workout, and might be worth a team taking an extended look at him as a rookie free agent.
