Junior Pro Day Boise State Edition 2009

Last weekend, Junior Pro Day occurred with a bunch of juniors ( seniors to be) going through a gaggle of challenges/drills/tests to showcase their talents to the NFL scouts.....there have been rumors of Kyle Wilson running in the 4.3 40 yard dash range( link to pics of a Kyle Wilson during the drills).....backed up with a rumor of 37 inch vertical jump. Pic below from the Statesman!

One of my black ops associates has relayed through the grapevine that Mike Coughlin had an impressive day. Here is some stats matched up against some of this year's recent NFL Draft Class 2009 and how MC compares to those drafted.

Mike Coughlin's Junior Pro Day:
6'4 1/4" 220 pounds
Vertical: 31 1/2 "
Broad Jump" 10' 2" ( would have ranked the #1 rated QB out of the 2009 class, with Josh Freeman coming in first at the combine at 9ft 11 inches)
Hang Clean: 301 pounds
40 Yd. Dash: 4.81 ( would have ranked tied for #3 with Matthew " Do not call me Matt" Stafford. Pat White was first in the 40 yard dash this past February, followed by Stephen McGee. NFL.com has Stafford running a 4.82)

From 2009 NFL Combine:

Matt Stafford 6'2" 225 pounds
40 Yd. Dash: 4.81
Vertical: 30.5
Broad Jump: 8' 11"

Mark Sanchez 6'2" 227 pounds
Broad Jump: 9'8"
40 Yard Dash: 4.88

Make what you will of these numbers but very impressive indeed. Mike Coughlin will see the field in some situations this Fall, and perhaps exceeding last year's snaps. The level between the first and second string quarterback might be closer than some naysayers would expect. Regardless, hopefully everyone stays healthy and the best Quarterback competes to the best of their ability ( a victory over Oregon will suffice as well).

Unable to acquire any other legit info from the recent Junior Day at BSU, but if anyone has any tips or links to the numbers, forward them to statueleft@hotmail.com
