SALT LAKE CITY--
Scouts from 20 NFL teams, including two representatives from the Carolina Panthers, observed 16 outgoing Utah seniors lift weights, run sprints and shuttles and do position drills at the annual Utah Pro Day at the Spence Eccles Field House.
Trevor Reilly, Keith McGill, Tenny Palepoi and Jake Murphy were the highest profile players participating and all said they were pleased with their performances. McGill and Palepoi took part in every drill, while Reilly ran the 40, did the vertical and broad jumps, and the linebacker position drills. Murphy limited himself to the 60-yard shuttle and the tight end position drills.
In the most anticipated 40 sprints, cornerback McGill ran a 4.52 and a 4.53, while Reilly recorded a 4.66 and a 4.69.
Reilly's 40 times are considered excellent for a linebacker and were a personal best, as was his 34" vertical jump and 9'9" broad jump. McGill leaped 35.5" in the vertical jump.
One who likely improved his stock was 6-foot, 243-pound running back Karl Williams, who posted the fastest 40 of the day with a 4.50. Williams also had a 35" vertical jump, a 9'11" broad jump and hoisted 21 bench press reps of 225 pounds.
