Falcons eye a pair of UW prospects at pro day
Doug Farrar of Football Outsiders.com reports that representatives of the Falcons attended the University of Washington’s pro day earlier today. NFL.com’s Gil Brandt reports that two prospects stood out at the session: linebacker Donald Butler and defensive end Daniel Te’o-Nesheim.
Per Brandt, Butler measured at just below 6’1″ 235 pounds and ran a 4.61 and 4.67 in the 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 35.5-inch vertical leap, 6.90 three-cone drill, and 4.26 short shuttle. Butler participated in the Combine, where he led linebackers with 35 bench reps of 225 pounds.
Te’o-Nesheim measured in at a little over 6’3″ and 267 pounds. He ran a pair of 40s at times of 4.72 and 4.73, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the Combine, which included a vertical leap of 37 inches, three-cone of 6.91 seconds, and short shuttle of 4.18, which were among the best of defensive linemen. Although a report in the Tacoma News Tribune clocked Te’o-Nesheim in the 4.63-4.66 range on his 40 times.
