I know a lot of guys are back in town to work out for pro day, and there's even a handful from the 2011 team who will be taking part in it.

It starts today at noon with the indoor stuff, measurements, lifting, jumping. And then will move outside into Wa Griz for the remainder of the running/field drills. I'm going to be in attendance, probably starting close to 1pm (once the guys move outside) and will provide updates via twitter: https://twitter.com/Bwahlberg" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Also I know Griz Central, found on http://www.GoGriz.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; will also have some updates and info today as well.

Good luck to all of the athletes taking part in this - usually pro day here is for the whole state, so we will see a handful of Frontier conference guys and Bobcat players as well.

How many reps does Dan Moore get? 25 plus

My bet is they get tired of counting them before he gets tired of doing 'em.

Will there be a helmet smashing competition for this event?
 
Some quick notes:

- Dan Moore was the main guy the scouts were watching. Incredible physical shape. He ran the 40 well, I was hearing 4.5 - 4.6 range. Had some issues with the 20 yard shuttle, kept slipping. Did well in the 3 cone. Pass catching went very well, had 1 drop on a deep route. As posted earlier 31 reps, wow.

- Peter Nguyen had a great burst in the first 20 yards of the 40 yard dash, did the agility drills really well. I heard he did 16 reps which is crazy for a guy his size.

- Gerald Kemp ran the 40 well, did 9 reps, his vertical jump was so-so (33 in). Ran routes well, did drop one pass and slip on another route.

- Antwon Moutra seemed a little slow in his 40 time. I was clocking on my phone and from the stands (and my phone only goes to 1/10ths of a second) but that didn't seem to go to well. He did great in the pass catching drills.

- Donny Lisowski killed it in the agility drills, one of my hand-timed 40's was a 4.3. Catching/routes were ok, he pinned a few to his body. His explosive speed out of his stance was very good. He didn't run any of the DB/CB drills defending passes where they watch his hips/feet/hands - wonder if he's trying to get looks as a WR?

- CJ Atkins came up for it, not sure his official 40 times, I was clocking 4.6 but in many cases I was 1 or 2 tenths slow. Agility drills went well, route running wasn't as crisp as others.

- Some big guys did a few drills, Opperud, Duncan, and Harris. Didn't hear how any of their bench reps went

- Sam Gratton and Caleb Walden also worked out. Sam looked good in the 3-cone and 20 yard shuttle.

- Greg Hardy I think had one fairly solid 40 yard time. Did very well catching/route running.

I'd posted earlier, just 3 scouts there plus a guy that aggregates scouting data to the various websites out there. That's less than usual but to be honest there was a lower than usual turnout there for players too. Thinking about it only Moore, Nguyen, Hardy, Gratton, Moore, and Walden were "new" guys - the rest there the scouts saw the year before... well not Atkins I guess, he was new as well.

Lots of people watching, most of the team that didn't have class were there. I saw both men's hoops and women's hoops players there. Looked like a few girls soccer players also out supporting the guys. Pflu was on the sidelines giving guys support, as was Trumaine.

Great weather, nice and sunny!

All-in-all, not meaning to knock on any of the guys but it seems that the main focus was Moore. He looked to be the one guy that had the most attention and has the best shot to keep going. Others had good moments that I saw (Kemp & Nguyen) but I'm just not sure if it was enough to grab pro-scouts attention. I know many of these guys have other pro days they'll be heading to near their home towns so hopefully today they learned some good stuff and can continue to work to improve and impress those scouts.
 
Oh and scouts there were from Houston, Seattle, and I think San Diego (didn't fully catch the 3rd).

Okay thanks, but the really important question is how did JJ look throwing to those guys?????
 
b/w as always, a big thank you for taking your time and keeping the griz faithful up to date ....
 
JJ did not throw - someone made a joke that they wished JJ was throwing to them but said that "he can't". I have a feeling it's probably another stupid little NCAA rule where active/current roster players cannot participate.

Bergquist has thrown in the last few for the guys. I think Selle did once he was done once, maybe. Swogger too. Never have seen an active-roster QB throwing at those.

Also I heard someone say JJ had a class anyways.
 
Moore on FB:

Weight 238lbs Vert 33.5. Bench 31. Broad jump 8.11 40 4.60 4.62. Montana pro My best numbers

If you're FB friends with him there's a video of his lift too, not sure if this carries over to here:

No clue why some of those guys participate in a "pro day"?

Just saying....

Heck I showed up to compete. Heard they wanted the fastest 33 coney dogs done...but alas it was fastest 3 cone done
 
If any of those teams were smart, they'd draft Pflu...and Moore.


would love it if the Seahawks drafted Moore...

I was there for the coney dog drill too. Go Figure!

There's always the hope, a guy might not have any playing time in his college career but there's that one chance he could show he's got the physical skills and get a chance to keep playing.
