Oklahoma State Holds Annual Pro Day

STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State held its annual pro timing day at Boone Pickens Stadium with several members of the senior class of 2009 running through a battery of measurements, tests and drills in front of 40 official personnel representing 27 different teams. General managers from three franchises were on hand to catch the action.

The day began in OSU’s sparkling new weight room facility, where the Cowboys were measured for height and weight. At taller than six feet, six inches, offensive lineman Brady Bond was the tallest member of the group. Fellow offensive lineman Russell Okung came in at six-foot-five and three-quarters and weighed 310 pounds.

Once everyone was measured, selected players moved to the vertical jump station, where former safety Quinton Moore (the only player from the senior class of 2008 participating in tests) was the star with a 36-inch leap. Safety Lucien Antoine and linebacker Andre Sexton both jumped 33.5 inches, with Okung turning heads with a 32.5-inch leap.

“I’m not trying to separate myself individually, I’m just trying to go out there and do what I do best and compete and if they like what they see, then they like what they see,” Okung said of his workout. Okung later added that he was not sure at this time what his draft-day plans are.

After the vertical jump, selected players moved on to the bench press station, where they were tested for repetitions at 225 pounds. Offensive lineman Noah Franklin led the way with 30 reps, with fellow lineman Andrew Mitchell right behind with 29. Linebacker Patrick Lavine was solid with 22 reps.

The action then moved outside onto the stadium turf, where selected players were tested for speed and agility in a variety of drills including the 40-yard dash, the three-cone drill and the 20-yard shuttle.

From there, some of the Cowboys wrapped up the day by doing position work for the personnel on hand.

While he did not participate in any of the testing after performing earlier at the Combine, quarterback Zac Robinson did participate in position work, throwing a series of passes to teammates Tommy Devereaux, DeMarcus Conner, Keith Toston and Beau Johnson.

“I think the Senior Bowl helped me a lot because the scouts got to see me throw every throw with guys in my face and the combine went really well also,” Robinson said. “I felt really good throwing today and they told me they saw everything they needed. I feel really good about it. I have private workouts set up and I’ll just go from there.”

Following his workout, Toston outlined his plans moving forward.

“I’m going to go train in Dallas until the summer workouts start here and then I’ll be back here with Coach Glass,” Toston said. “His summer programs are some of the toughest I’ve ever seen. I want to put myself back in his place and hope for the best.”
