Print

Ole Miss held its pro day on Monday, with 32 teams sending representatives to watch 23 players work out indoors on FieldTurf. The player that seemed to draw the most interest was TE Evan Engram, as five teams sent their tight ends coach to observe.

But Engram wasn't the lone star there. The Rebels had all four of their combine participants present, as well as several others identified below who emerged as post-draft priority free agents or better.

» WR Quincy Adeboyejo (6-2 5/8, 198) had a 37-inch vertical jump and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. He had an outstanding workout in position drills, showing an ability to track and catch the ball well, and his speed and quickness was clearly evident.

» DE Fadol Brown (6-4 3/8, 282) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.90 and 4.88 seconds (incredibly fast for 282 pounds), had a 31.5-inch vertical, and a 4.48-second short shuttle. He stood on the rest of his combine numbers. He's got a history of injuries and needs to show he can stay healthy.

» TE Evan Engram (6-3 5/8, 235) stood on his exceptional numbers from the combine. One tight end coach who was there call his workout "the best I have ever seen by a tight end." An explosive athlete, Engram showed off his ability to catch the ball smoothly, as well as pass protect.

» DT D.J. Jones (6-0 1/2, 313) participated in the bench press (28, three more than he had at the combine) but stood on the rest of his numbers from Indianapolis. He's an interesting player to me.

» QB Chad Kelly (6-1 3/4, 228) was not invited to the combine because of some off-field indiscretions, and had his pro day end abruptly after injuring his wrist just 10 passes into his workout. There's a lot of work he needs to make up in the next month. He has alot of ability but so many questions remain.

» WR Damore'ea Stringfellow (6-1 7/8, 218) ran the 40 in 4.62 and 4.60 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical, a 10-foot-10 broad jump, a 4.50-second short shuttle, a 7.20-second three-cone drill, and added 17 lifts on the bench press. He had a very good workout. he is a really good, productive player without the lightning speed. He could possibly hear his name called on Day 3 of the draft.

» CB Carlos Davis (5-8 1/2, 174) ran the 40 in 4.39 and 4.37 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical, a 9-10 broad jump, a 4.26-second short shuttle, and a 6.92-second three-cone. He's a projected priority free agent.
