Dolphins TE coach checks out Wes Saxton's pro day

Representatives from 12 NFL teams -- including Miami Dolphins tight ends coach Dan Campbell -- were present for South Alabama's pro day on Monday.

The workout was held outdoors and run on FieldTurf on a beautiful, 75-degree day in Mobile, Ala.

Quarterback Brandon Bridge (6-foot-4 5/8, 230 pounds) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Bridge had a good positional workout. He has lots of upside and just needs to get some experience as a developmental prospect.

Tight end Wes Saxton (6-3 3/8, 253) performed 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine, where he was a top performer in his position group in the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and broad jump. Saxton looked very good in his positional workout, catching the ball really well. He showed that he hadn't lost any speed (he weighed five pounds more at the pro day than at the combine). Saxton is a prospect with good upside.
