Griz Had Chance to Make Impression at Pro Day

Posted: Updated:

About a dozen or so NFL scouts were on hand at Washington-Grizzly Stadium Tuesday for the 2014 Griz Pro Day. It was a fun and exciting atmosphere but players took a serious business like approach in hopes of extending their football careers.

"It's quite the experience to say the least, it's something I've been dreaming for side I was eight years old and it's all coming to a head here and it's very exciting," said former Montana offensive lineman William Poehls.

"When I started training down in Orlando on January 2nd I had this date in mind. I'm really happy with my performance today I just put all my hard work to action so it was a great day today," said linebacker Brock Coyle.

At pro day, the athletes show off their physical abilities with a bench press, broad jump and forty yard dash as well as a handful of position drills that showcase their talents to the scouts.

"You know it's the interaction with the players basically, getting to know a player face to face, and then football has been over for awhile so you want to see what condition their in that's why we do those workouts," said Tennessee Titans Scout Marv Sunderland.

There were probably ten more scouts at the Griz pro day this year compared to last, mostly looking at linebacker Jordan Tripp, followed by Brock Coyle and Danny Kistler. The high turnout of NFL personnel allow off the radar players to get noticed.

"Well there's a lot of scouts here Jordy is here there's a lot of people looking at him and Coyle. There's a lot of talented people here so figured it would be a good chance to get noticed and get another pro day in," said former Montana State running back Cody Kirk.

"Well that happens guys that weren't recommended by a staff or overlooked i mean it happens and that's the other reason we do that is because we allow the seniors to work out and sometimes those guys showcase themselves pretty well," said Sunderland.

So it will be along couple months for these guys working out for teams and talking to organizations hoping they get their named called during the NFL Draft.
