FORMER HORNETS PUT ON SHOW FOR PRO SCOUTS

FORMER HORNETS PUT ON SHOW FOR PRO SCOUTS

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Nine former Sacramento State football players put their skills and physical prowess on display this morning at Hornet Stadium as part of the annual pro day. The group was evaluated by multiple scouts from the National Football League, Canadian Football and Arena Football League.

Wide receiver DeAndre Carter, quarterback Garrett Safron and defensive end Jaycee Totty provided most of the highlights as the trio of all-Big Sky selections accounted for the best mark in every test. Others to take part included defensive tackle Nate Castro, wide receiver Joey DePalma and safety Mike Sellers from the 2014 team. Running back Ezekiel Graham, safety Dijon Washington and punter Justin Weldon — who all completed their eligibility in 2013 — also took part.

Carter, who earned All-America honors last season, began his path to the pros at the NFLPA Bowl in January where he quickly became a scout favorite. On Friday was measured at 5-foot, 8.5 inches and 185.5 pounds, before wowing the audience with a vertical jump of 38.5 inches. He also had a 10-foot, 6-inch broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 17 times. Once outdoors, Carter ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds for the fastest time of the day. He also had a 4.03 time in the short shuttle, ran the three-cone drill in 6.65 seconds and completed the 60-yard shuttle in 11.40.

Safron (6-00.75, 200) had a vertical jump of 36.5 inches and a day-best broad jump of 10-foot, 9-inches. The record setting passer ran the 40 in 4.70 seconds, the short shuttle in 4.32 and the three-cone drill in 6.93. Safron then showed off his arm throwing passes to Carter and DePalma for nearly 20 minutes.

Totty, who was being evaluated as both a defensive end and a stand-up pass rusher, weighed in at a slimmed down 255 pounds on a 6-1.75 frame. He led all players with 29 reps of 225 pounds in the bench press with a 10-foot broad jump and 30-inch vertical. Outdoors, he ran the 40 in 4.78 seconds with an impressive time of 4.46 in the short shuttle and 6.79 in the three-cone.

Along with the nine Sacramento Stat athletes, two players from Humboldt State also took part in the drills.
