Ex-USC QB Max Max Wittek could be camp arm

Print

Hawaii quarterback Max Wittek worked out in front of 20 NFL teams at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, Calif., on March 22.

Check out the top prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft in action at their on-campus pro days.

Wittek -- 6-foot-3 3/4, 233 pounds -- played three seasons at USC, but lost his starting spot to Cody Kessler. He transferred to Hawaii in 2014.

At his pro day, Wittek ran the 40-yard dash in 4.95 seconds on a slight downhill and 5.07 seconds on a slight uphill for an average time of 5.01 seconds. He didn't do the vertical or broad jumps due to a right knee issue. Wittek has a strong arm, but struggles with accuracy. He could be brought in as a camp quarterback.

San Jose State

Representatives from 22 NFL teams -- including San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly and most of his coaching staff, as well as much of the Oakland Raiders' coaching staff sans head coach Jack Del Rio -- were on hand for San Jose State's pro day on March 16.

A total of 14 players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.

Running back Tyler Ervin -- 5-9 7/8, 188 -- did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.34 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.03 seconds. Ervin had a real good workout. He catches the ball well.

Cornerback Jimmy Pruitt -- 5-11 5/8, 195 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 and 4.65 seconds. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds and the three-cone in 7.03 seconds.

Cornerback Cleveland Wallace -- 5-10 3/4, 187 -- did the 40 in 4.62 and 4.58 seconds. He had a 37-inch vertical jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.25 seconds and three-cone in 6.87 seconds. He performed seven reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Wallace has a lot of quickness in his moves, but just lacks strength.

Portland State

Representatives from 20 NFL teams were on hand for Portland State's pro day on March 9.

2016 NFL DRAFT

Draft coverage:

The event was described as a very unique pro day. It was held during a heavy rain. The Portland State coaching staff was nice enough to send some younger players out to hold umbrellas for the scouts so they could time the prospects.

There were three prospects who could be rookie free-agent pickups.

Defensive back Patrick "Peanut" Onwuasor -- 6-0 1/8, 213 -- ran the 40 in 4.64 and 4.6 seconds. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.6 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.51 seconds. He had 24 bench-press reps.

Cornerback Aaron Sibley -- 5-9 1/4, 173 -- ran the 40 in 4.58 and 4.59 seconds. He had a 41-inch vertical and 10-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.04 seconds and the three-cone in 6.77 seconds. He performed 13 reps on the bench press.

Defensive end Sadat Sulleyman -- 6-0 3/8, 254 -- ran the 40 in 4.87 and 4.86 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.53 seconds and the three-cone in 7.45 seconds. He put the bar up 23 times on the bench press. Sulleyman is undersized for a defensive end, and has to make it in the NFL as a Pittsburgh Steelers-type outside linebacker.

Idaho State

Representatives from six NFL teams stayed at Boise State following that school's pro-day workout to catch the pro day of Idaho State on March 31.

The workout was held indoors and run on FieldTurf. A total of three players worked out, and two are possible rookie free-agent pickups.

Defensive lineman Tyler Kuder -- 6-3 1/4, 307 -- ran the 40 in 5.19 and 5.27 seconds. He had a 28-inch vertical and 8-foot-4 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.8 seconds and the three-cone in 8.26 seconds. He performed 31 reps on the bench press.

Wide receiver Madison Mangum -- 6-1 1/2, 209 -- ran the 40 in 4.69 and 4.71 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.54 seconds and the three-cone in 6.96 seconds. He had 16 reps on the bench.

Eastern Washington

Representatives from 20 NFL teams -- including an offensive line coach from the Arizona Cardinals -- were on hand for Eastern Washington's pro day on April 1.

A total of five players worked out, and two are possible rookie free-agent pickups.

Offensive tackle Clay DeBord -- 6-6 1/8, 302 -- ran the 40 in 5.0 and 5.05 seconds. He had a 30 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.37 seconds and the three-cone in 7.59 seconds. He had 18 reps on the bench press.

Offensive guard Aaron Neary -- 6-3 1/8, 301 -- ran the 40 in 5.12 and 5.18 seconds. He had a 28 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.37 seconds and the three-cone in 7.59 seconds. He had 18 reps on the bench.

British Columbia

Representatives from two NFL teams were on hand for the pro day of the University of British Columbia (Canada) on March 30. The workout was held outdoors and run on FieldTurf.

Kicker/punter Quinn van Gylswyk -- 6-foot-2 3/4, 198 -- is a free-agent possibility.
