Stanford NFL Hopefuls Showcase Their Talents at Pro Timing Day

March 18, 2010

STANFORD, Calif. - Ten former Stanford players displayed their talents before scouts and executives from all 32 NFL teams during Pro Timing Day which was held on the Stanford campus and Palo Alto High School.

Stanford's participants included Toby Gerhart, Chris Marinelli, Jim Dray, Ekom Udofia, Bo McNally, Allen Smith, Tavita Pritchard, Clinton Snyder, Matt Kopa and Erik Lorig.

The day began at 10:00 a.m. with weight room evaluations in the Stanford Football strength and conditioning facility. From there, the players and scouts moved across the street to the field turf at Palo Alto High School for on-the-field agility and position drills.

Gerhart, coming off a strong showing at the NFL Combine last month, was impressive going through various position drills.

Dray, a draft hopeful at the tight end position, opened eyes by clocking a 4.78 40-time and stringing together 20 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Marinelli, a second team AP All-American offensive lineman, was clocked at 5.06 in the 40.

Udofia was impressive in the weight room, with 35 reps on the bench press.

The NFL Draft is slated for April 22-24 in New York City.

Over the last 12 years, a total of 35 Stanford players have been selected in the NFL Draft, including 26 since 2002.
