Maliek Collins displays endurance at Nebraska's pro day

Print

Representatives from 30 NFL teams -- including defensive line coaches from the Detroit Lions, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans -- were on hand for Nebraska's pro day on Friday.

A total of 13 players went through the well-executed pro day by coach Mike Riley, who spoke with everybody and made the trainer and academic staff available for scouts to talk to.

Nebraska had four prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Defensive tackle Maliek Collins -- 6-foot-1 5/8, 308 pounds -- had a great workout. The coaches tried to tire him out during his positional workout, but Collins was just as good at the end of the workout as he was in the beginning.

2016 NFL DRAFT

Draft coverage:

Fullback Andy Janovich -- 6-1 1/8, 238 -- was injured and did not work out. He did, however, go through a full combine workout a week ago.

Offensive tackle Alex Lewis -- 6-5, 308 -- had an 8-foot-9 broad jump, and had a good positional workout that was run by a defensive line coach from the Eagles.

Defensive tackle Vincent Valentine -- 6-3 5/8, 323 -- was worked out by the three defensive line coaches. He had a good workout, but did get a little tired toward its conclusion.

Three more prospects who have a chance to be free-agent pickups following the 2016 NFL Draft also worked out.

Cornerback Daniel Davie -- 6-0 1/2, 190 -- did the 40-yard dash in 4.37 and 4.40 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-7 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.06 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. Davie also performed nine reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Davie was a wide receiver in high school, but started as a defensive back at Nebraska for the past two and a half years before being limited in his final college season.

Defensive tackle Givens Price -- 6-3 5/8, 298 -- ran the 40 in 5.09 and 5.05 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.59 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.50 seconds.

Defensive end Jack Gangwish -- 6-2 5/8, 272 -- ran the 40 in 4.78 and 4.87 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. He had a 4.31-second short shuttle time and did the three-cone drill in 7.06 seconds. Gangwish was a walk-on at Nebraska who worked his way into the starting lineup, starting nine games in 2015.
