2019 Michigan Pro Day Results

2019 Michigan Pro Day Results

March 16, 2019
Brandon Watson (#28)

Michigan held its pro day on Friday. Every scholarship, draft-eligible player participated except running back Karan Higdon, linebacker Noah Furbush (entering the Marines), and fullback/linebacker Jared Wangler.

I won’t list all the results, but here are the most discussed measurements for each participant:

QB Wilton Speight: 6’6 5’8″, 230 lbs., 4.9 forty

RB Berkley Edwards: 5’8 5’8″, 191 lbs., 4.51 forty

WR Grant Perry: 5’10 3/4″, 185 lbs., 4.68 forty

TE Zach Gentry: 14 bench press reps, 4.78 forty, 7.2 three-cone drill

OT Juwann Bushell-Beatty: 6’5 1/2″, 315 lbs., 16 bench press reps, 8.0 three-cone drill

DT Lawrence Marshall: 6’3 1/8″, 270 lbs., 5.21 forty, 7.75 three-cone drill

DT Bryan Mone: 6’3″, 366 lbs., 5.55 forty, 20 bench press reps

CB Casey Hughes: 5’11 1/4″, 181 lbs., 4.58 forty, 34.5″ vertical, 10’4″ broad jump, 7.27 three-cone drill, 8 bench press reps

CB Brandon Watson: 5’11 1/8″, 198 lbs., 4.52 forty, 10’3″ broad jump, 15 bench press reps, 38″ vertical

S Tyree Kinnel: 5’11”, 207 lbs., 15 bench press reps, 34.5″ vertical, 9’9″ broad jump, 4.5 forty, 6.78 three-cone drill

LS Andrew Robinson: 7.95 three-cone drill

I would say the biggest winner of the day was Brandon Watson, whose 40 time, vertical, size, and bench press reps were all pretty solid. That might get him a chance to latch on with a team if he wasn’t already going to get that opportunity.

Here are the full results from MGoBlue.com (LINK).

    Ben Mason to DE or SAM.

    That’s an idea Wino put out there and it could make some sense if FB continues to be de-emphasized. Michigan has a bit of a void at SAM and Mason could reprise Furbush’s role of quasi-DL/block-eating jumbo LB.

    More likely that Mason continues to play RB and expands to more of an H-back/TE role. But Harbaugh’s played people both ways before.

      Meant this for the position change thread. Oops.

      I’m not a big fan of moving Mason to DE or Sam. I don’t think he has the skill set to be a rusher at those positions. If anything, I think he’s a MIKE on defense, but he doesn’t have the same skill set as someone like Devin Bush.

    * Speight isn’t much slower than Gentry in the 40. Never would’ve guessed that …

    * I wonder how Gentry would do in the 100M/200M? He doesn’t seem to accelerate too well, but he’s an impressive runner for someone his height once he gets going.

    * Brandon Watson almost outbenched JBB. Another big guy with an unfavorably impressive bench number was Mone.

    * Did Lawrence Marshall drop some weight? 270 isn’t much for an interior Big Ten D-lineman.

    * Kinnel’s 40 is better than I thought it would be.

    6’3 366 lbs. Damn, Mone should have been an offensive guard. Kidding.

    Although he might want to take a swing at that intermediate fasting thing. Along with Onwenu.

    Intermediate fasting does work some. If you can get it down to six hours, you can eat halfway stupid every once in a while and still take some weight off, particularly if you’re working out. I’ll hit the ice cream and the vanilla wafers fairly hard once a week or so and still have managed to keep losing weight over time.

    Speight’s almost as fast as matchup-nightmare Zach Gentry.
