    Individual Workouts
    Now that the Combine is over, several players who participated have worked out individually. NFL.com's Gil Brandt shares his insights on how some of the prospects performed, and thanks to him, we have over 100 schools covered!

    Lynn Stiles of the Kansas City Chiefs began a 24-team coalition called the Associated Pro Teams (APT) to share information. Teams are assigned by region and are responsible for getting information to the other 23 teams on all the individual workouts.

    These times and measurements are not official by any means. They are as accurate as possible, but bear in mind that when these people do the running drills, there's always going to be a variance in time. Benches and jumps, though, are absolute.

    April 22: Miami RB Willis McGahee performed a near-full workout on his campus
    April 18: DE Terrell Suggs worked out again on his campus
    April 10: DB Yeremiah Bell worked out at Eastern Kentucky. He recently was granted eligibility for the draft after being turned down for his sixth collegiate year. He missed his fifth season after breaking his leg.
    April 7: QB Byron Leftwich worked out in Bradenton, Fla.
    April 4-6: This was re-check weekend in Indianapolis, where about 40 players who were invited to the Combine returned to have a recheck physical. For example, if a player had a broken hand when the original physical took place in February, the doctors were checking to see how it's mending and if it is mending correctly. Willis McGahee was one of the players rechecked, and the doctors say his injured knee is sound, he will be able to go to camp and work out fully in July, and there's no reason why he should miss the 2003 season.
    April 4: Rutgers TE L.J. Smith, who pulled a hamstring catching passes during Chris Simms' private workout on March 18, worked out the Rutgers campus.
    April 1: Cal QB Kyle Boller worked out in Chicago, his second on-site workout.
    March 27: Results from USC QB Carson Palmer's workout for the Jaguars

    ARIZONA STATE: MARCH 26
    The Sun Devils had two Pro Days. Suggs worked out on March 26, the rest worked out on March 14.

    For both of Suggs workouts (March 26 and April 18), many NFL people were there. Teams with big contingents for both workouts included Houston, Detroit, Chicago, Arizona, the Giants and Minnesota.

    Q & A with ASU head coach Dirk Koetter
    Player Position Gil's comments
    Terrell Suggs
    Terrell Suggs
    DE April 18 results:
    Weighing 258 pounds, Suggs ran a 4.88 40-yard dash against wind, and 4.95 and 4.92 with the wind. Yes, he ran faster running against the wind. However, his time in the 10-yard dash was 1.75 against the wind and 1.71 with the wind, and his times in the 20-yard dash were 2.84 with and against. He did look good in the drills, and especially looked quick during them.

    March 26 results:
    Suggs stood at 6-3 3/8 and 257 pounds. The first time Suggs ran the 40, it was a consensus 4.86 (meaning everyone had him clocked in that range). The second time, he ran for a high of 4.9 and a low of 4.77, depending on whose watch you're looking at. He ran better the second time, according to people there.

    He did 19 reps, had a 32½-inch vertical and a 9-foot long jump. He added a 4.33 in the short shuttle and a 7.48 in the three-cone drill.

    I thought he would run faster, but a lot of times, 40-yard dash times can be deceiving because players can play a lot faster on the field with equipment on. A fellow by the name of Jerry Rice ran on that same field 18 years ago and did not run the 40 below 4.68. I don't think he's ever been caught from behind during a game.

    Falcons national scout Mike Hagen was there, a man with years and years of valuable experience. Here is his analysis on Suggs:

    "He looked a lot better once he got started into the football drills, but he didn't run as expected.

    "We're talking about a guy who's a potential top 10 pick, and he didn't post those kinds of numbers. He's just one of those guys who's not a workout guy, but if you like him as a football player, then these things shouldn't bother you. With a helmet and pads on, he's a very productive, highly-successful player against top competition. His workout won't influence my grade on this kid. I have him getting a high first-round grade."

    Solomon Bates LB Bates came in at 6-1 and 244 pounds. He ran the 40 twice for times of 4.78 and 4.79. He lifted the bar 22 times. He had a 30½-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-4 in the long jump, a 4.26 in the short shuttle and a 6.85 in the three-cone drill.

    NEW HAVEN: MARCH 25
    This workout took place at the same time as Southern Connecticut's, on the campus of Yale. A total of 13 teams were in attendance. Five days earlier, Chargers OL coach Hudson Houck worked out Bogle.
    Player Position Gil's comments
    Phil Bogle OT Bogle's estimated weight was 330 pounds, and we mean estimate because the meat scale they had to use only went to 325 pounds, so he literally tipped the scale. He ran a 5.19 in the 40, had 27-inch vertical against a wall, which we equate to a normal 30-inch vertical, benched 21 times, had an 8-foot-6 in the long jump and ran a 4.5 in the short shuttle.

    Player Position Gil's comments
    Jacques Cesaire DE Cesaire was listed at 6-foot-2 and 295 pounds. He ran the 40 indoors at 5.04 and 5.05, had a 9-foot-2 long jump, 26-inch vertical jump (but they did it against the wall, so it equates to 29 inches by Combine standards), 4.70 in the short shuttle, and 7.53 in the three-cone drill. He did 26 reps on the bench. Cesaire looked very good in the drills.

    His agent, Joe Linta, has had amazing success with guys he finds at small schools in the East. He had 10 guys from smaller schools make the NFL.

    ALABAMA A&M: MARCH 24
    Player Position Gil's comments
    Robert Mathis LB Representatives from 16 teams converged on Atlanta to watch the Div. I-AA all-time single season sack leader work out. This player is nicknamed "The Freak," just like Titans DE Jevon Kearse.

    Mathis was 6-0 3/8 and 228 pounds -- obviously not the size of an NFL defensive end, but teams think he can play outside linebacker. He did the 40 for times of 4.56 and 4.53 on an indoor turf-type track in a 55-yard gym. Because the gym was so short, he may not have gone at his full speed, because it's pretty tough to slow down in 15 yards after running a 40 at full steam. Mathis added a 32-inch vertical, a 9-foot-6 long jump, a 4.25 short shuttle, a 7.3 three-cone drill and he added 22 benches.

    WR Arnaz Battle was listed at 6-1½, 210 pounds, ran a 4.43 and 4.46, had a 10-foot-1 long jump, and 34-inch vertical jump. The consensus is that he has very good hands, but needs work in route running. He has only been a receiver for two years because he was a quarterback before that.

    Rex Grossman
    WR Rex Grossman was there pretty much just to throw the ball, but did some things. He measured at 6-1 at Indy, weighed 216 pounds here, and ran 5.09 and 5.21 in the 40. He had a 27-inch vertical, an 8-foot-3 long jump, a 4.51 time in the short shuttle, and a 7.25 time in the three-cone drill.

    Discovered at Florida's Pro Day was how Grossman became a Gator. He is from Bloomington, IN, and he went to Florida with his family on spring break. Spurrier had no idea he would show up. Grossman brings a highlight tape with him, and Spurrier takes one look at the tape, noticed how fast his release was, and said, "He's got a quick release. Let's give him a scholarship." The rest is history.

    Byron Leftwich
    Byron Leftwich
    QB Leftwich worked out at a high school in Bradenton, Fla. because the NFL did not let him work out at the University of South Florida even though he was training nearby. Four head coaches -- Jack Del Rio, John Fox, Brian Billick and Marvin Lewis were there, as were general managers Rich McKay, Jerry Angelo and Ozzie Newsome. Jon Gruden, Sr. was also on hand, as was ESPN to shoot a bunch of stuff. Larry Kennan, a former NFL coach, ran his QB drills, and he took all of his snaps from under center.

    Weighing in at 236 pounds, Leftwich ran the 40-yard dash twice between 4.85 and 4.92 seconds, which in our system equates to a 4.89. He ran a 4.50 short shuttle and a 7.71 three-cone drill, but remember, he's a long strider, so it makes it tough to run the three-cone. It's also important to note that the kind of shoes Leftwich wore were "nubs," or very short, rounded cleats. Best of all, he looked good in the side-to-side drills they put him through. Billick, for one, was impressed with Leftwich's movement.

    He threw to Peter Warrick, Ron Dugans and Sylvester Morris. When he first got to his training center in Florida, he weighed 263 pounds. Now, he's down to 236.

    Following the workout, Leftwich made plans to visit Cincinnati the following day.

He didn't run because he ran at the Combine, did 21 reps, and all of the position drills. The consensus of opinion is that Harris is going to be a very good player because he's so young, but he has a lot to learn.

    There were 17 players in total that worked out. They ran in the indoor facility, which is beautiful. It's just state-of-the-art. A whole bunch of kids were there watching and cheering, like they did at USC. Tennessee's crowd was equal to the one at Georgia the day before. It was unbelievable how many scouts were there.

    The lone head coach there was Jim Haslett. He gets the award for most visits. He was at Georgia the day before and Kansas State the day before that.

Bengals WRs T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Danny Farmer, along with USC WR Kareem Kelly and FB Malaefou MacKenzie caught passes for Palmer.

    Palmer and the Jaguars: Carson worked out for the Jaguars on March 27 in Southern California.

Jaguars GM James Harris, head coach Jack Del Rio and offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave was there. Musgrave orchestrated the drills while Palmer threw for about 30 minutes in extremely windy conditions. After that, most of the time was devoted to a blackboard session, where they quizzed him on opposing defensive schemes.

    Boss Bailey
    LB Bailey did not work out at the Combine, but put on a heck of a show here. Bailey measured up at 6-3¼ and 230 pounds, and ran a 4.35 on a rubber track and ran one time because he tweaked his hamstring. He also had a 44.5-inch vertical jump along with a 10-foot-11 long jump.

    Bailey had a second workout on April 7 since he didn't have a complete workout earlier. Well, it rained there, so he had to run inside on a wood floor. Before he ran, he threw the bar up 18 times. Then he ran the short in 4.29 and the three-cone drill in 7.34. He also did some positional drills, again, on the wood floor. Can't help but think that he would have had better numbers if he worked out at the Combine in the first place.

He registered a vertical jump of 30 1/2 inches and long-jumped 9 feet, 6 inches. Scouts are looking at him as as more of a kick returner.
    LaTarence Dunbar
    LaMarcus McDonald
    LB McDonald left school early on the advice that he would be a second-round draft pick. He weighed in at 229 pounds and ran two 5.0s on grass. Scouts are looking for a faster time than that from a linebacker who weighs 229.
    John Turntine
    John Turntine
    DT Turntine really helped himself at the workout. He measured 6-foot-1 and 1/8 inches tall. He weighed 268 pounds. He did 20 reps and ran a 5.0 flat. He registered a vertical jump of 31 inches and long jumped 9 feet, 6 inches, very good for a guy his size. He did very well overall, the only slight being that scouts may wish he was a bit taller.

    Willis McGahee
    RB At long last, McGahee had his workout on April 22. Among those in attendance were coaches and scouts from the Texans, Titans, Steelers, Buccaneers, Saints, Ravens, Chiefs, Raiders and Eagles. In addition, the Patriots, 49ers and Redskins requested tapes of the workout.

    McGahee did 26 bench presses at 230 pounds, not the usual 225, and he also did some squats. He then ran two 50-yard dashes at what was termed about "80 percent healthy," but those times are not available, nor should they be legitimate because he wasn't running at 100 percent. He also caught 60 passes from Todd Sievers (the Hurricanes' kicker), where he ran a few routes, but mostly caught them sideways and over his head. He'll have an interesting Draft Day.

They weren't able to work out at Memphis University so they went to Tim Dulin's all-purpose complex, where AAU baseball teams work out. The conditions were not good.

    Smith is an up-and-coming player who has been sought after by several teams. On March 21, offensive line coaches Steve Loney of Minnesota and Larry Zierlein of Cleveland came in to work him out. He was also invited to San Francisco for a "top 20" visit, where clubs are allowed to bring 20 players in for a personal visit. On March 28, Smith has a workout with Mike Solari of Kansas City and Pete Mangarian of Atlanta. He worked out March 22 for Juan Castillo of the Eagles and had two Memphis players there helping by holding the shields and blocking bags.

    QB Bollinger measured 6-1½, ran better than he did at the Combine (4.71) and had a 32-inch vertical jump. Wisconsin offensive coordinator Brian White, a former Harvard QB, thinks Bollinger is one of the real sleepers in this draft. There have been only seven players in college football history to have won 30 or more games in his career as a starting quarterback. Bollinger has everything you look for in a QB: leadership, smarts, good feet, all the intangibles you want. White predicts Bollinger will be a starting QB in the NFL. I agree.
