Representatives from all 32 NFL teams -- including Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and a large group of defensive backs coaches -- were present for Utah's pro day on Thursday, when 13 Utes worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Defensive end Nate Orchard (6-3 3/8, 250) had a good pro day workout, but the consensus is that he will have a hard time in the NFL being a rush/drop outside linebacker. His best position at the next level appears to be as a defensive end with his hand in the ground rushing the passer.
Cornerback Eric Rowe (6-0 1/8, 203) stood on his numbers from the combine, which were outstanding (he was among the top performers in his position group in every drill). Rowe had a very good pro day workout, justifying Kelly being there (given the Eagles' glaring need at the position). The 2014 season was Rowe's first at cornerback after having played safety prior. He had a slow start to the season due to an injury. However, he's come alive during the draft season, having a very good combine and pro day.
Defensive end Greg Reese (6-4 3/8, 275) ran the 40 in 5.0 and 4.96 seconds. He had a 29 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-9 broad jump. Reese ran the short shuttle in 4.62 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.77 seconds. He also performed 30 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Reese looks like a priority free-agent possibility for a team following the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft.
NFL scouts on hand for Utah's pro day were very happy with how well-organized the event was.
