What did we learn from Miami football Pro Day?

Twelve recent Miami football alums took part in Pro Day on Monday at the Carol Soffer Indoor Practice Facility. Some were trying to better their NFL Combine numbers.

There were 321 players at the 2024 NFL Combine. The NFL Draft has 257 picks in 2024. Moving into the NFL Draft as a non-combine invitee is difficult, but not impossible. The Miami players who participated on Monday posted several numbers that should have impressed the scouts in attendance.

Miller Degnan reported Deen ran a 5.34 40 on Monday. Harrell wowed reporters by running a 4.28 40. During one drill, Harrell dropped a pass on a deep route to the right corner of the end zone. The consensus on Harrell is that he needs to learn to run better running and that he drops too many passes.

Couch ran a 4.48 40 and had a 10'4" broad jump. Davis had a 4.47 40, 9'11" broad jump and 16 bench press reps. Smith posted a 4.51 40 and 10" broad jump with 12 bench press reps. Cloud ran a 4.61 with 19 bench reps. These were all reported by Lake. Cloyd, Couch, Davis and Smith will likely have to hope to be signed as undrafted free agents.

Former Miami general manager of football operations Alonzo Highsmith attended Pro Day. Highsmith is now an executive with the New England Patriots. Miller Degnan quoted Highsmith saying that NFL Combine numbers shouldn't be over-emphasized. Kinchens and Lee seemed to improve their stock the most during Pro Day.
