Gamecocks Hold Annual Pro Day


March 14, 2017

The University of South Carolina football program held its annual Pro Day on Tuesday. Fifteen draft-eligible former Gamecocks showcased their skills in front of NFL scouts.

The event began at 8 am in the Crews Building weight room, with each participant being measured for height, weight, hand size, arm length and wingspan, then tested in both the vertical and broad jumps, before finishing with reps at 225 pounds on the bench press.

The players then moved to the Jerri and Steve Spurrier indoor facility, where they ran the 40-yard dash, along with a pair of shuttle runs and the three-cone drill, before going through a series of position-specific drills.

Darius English had a productive day, as the All-SEC second-team performer looked to improve his draft stock. Standing 6-5 3/8, the defensive end weighed in at 248 pounds and logged a 10-foot, nine-inch broad jump and a 35-inch vertical leap. Elliott Fry, the Gamecocks' all-time leading scorer, showed off a strong and accurate leg, in wrapping up the day's activities.

Here are the results of today's testing:
