North Carolina A&T offensive line star Brandon Parker worked out in front of 17 NFL teams at the Aggies' on-campus Pro Day, and he didn't disappoint. At the NFL Combine, he hadn't "felt the best" after a pre-workout meal of Chipotle, but he came back home and benched 21 reps of the 225-pound bench press.
Parker told HERO Sports on Monday that he'll be traveling this week to meet with the Buffalo Bills and the New York Giants, and then will travel home to North Carolina to meet and workout with his home-state team, the Carolina Panthers (Parker is from Kannapolis, just north of Charlotte).
Donnerson told HERO Sports Monday he decided to stand on his Missouri Western Pro Day numbers and just do position drills at SEMO, and he will meet with the Tampa Bay Bucs and Green Bay Packers this week. Tight end Logan Larson left with a big highlight, benching 24 reps of 225 pounds — good enough to be the top mark for any TE at the NFL Combine.
Ford decided to go all out again and impressed with his shuttle drills and 3-cone — which of course show quickness. Ford also posted an 11-foot broad jump, a 4.47 time in the 40-yard dash and a 40-inch vertical. He measured in a 6-foot-0, 194 pounds. He hasn't met with teams yet, personally, but things likely will begin heating up soon in that department.
"I always knew I would test well just didn't know how it would compare to others," Ford told HERO Sports after his Pro Day. "A vision without action is merely a dream. It's the grind, it's the hustle, it's the persistence that makes it a reality."
