College football pro days: Northwestern, Missouri Southern host NFL scouts

Reid Compton-US PRESSWIRE

The Northwestern Wildcats were among multiple schools hosting their Pro Day on Tuesday, but offensive guard Brian Mulroe, their most likely draft prospect, did not participate.

Northwestern held its Pro Day on Tuesday, and despite winning a bowl game for the first time in 64 years, there aren't many Wildcats who are expected to hear their name called during the 2013 NFL Draft. Perhaps their best prospect was offensive guard Brian Mulroe, who has decided not to pursue the draft.

Despite Mulroe's absence, several players worked out on Tuesday and 30 scouts from 27 NFL teams were present.

Cornerback Quinn Evans recorded a 37-inch vertical and a team-best 4.37 40-yard dash, and showed great recovery speed in a coverage drill to add context to his quickness. Defensive lineman Brian Arnfelt put up 38 reps in the bench press, while linebacking prospect David Nwabuisi notched 20. Though Nwabuisi struggled in his first 40, posting a 4.92, he rebounded with a 4.71 to go along with an impressive 31.5-inch vertical leap. Evans' leap and Arnfelt's press would have put them among the leaders in those categories at the NFL Combine.

All of the Wildcats struggled with the three-cone drill, with Nwabuisi, Arnfelt, and offensive lineman Patrick Ward falling in at least one of their two attempts. Ward was held out of the weight room as he is recovering from a hand injury, but reports were good on his backpedaling drill.

Missouri Southern held a pro day for three-time Division II All-American Brandon Williams. The standout defensive tackle weighed in at 333 lbs. and was looked at by scouts of the Steelers, Chiefs, Vikings, Saints, Ravens and Seahawks. Williams impressed with his strength at the NFL Combine, pushing 38 reps at the bench press. It is expected that Williams will be the first Division II player selected.
