Scouts from all 32 NFL teams, including New York Jets General Manager John Idzik, were on campus this morning for Texas Tech's annual pro day.
With potential first-rounder Jace Amaro providing the marquee billing, a total of 13 Red Raider seniors got their chance to impress the scouts with the hope of turning football into a professional career.
The pro day turned out to be productive for Amaro as he improved upon his 40-yard dash time and his vertical from the NFL Combine. Amaro posted a 4.68 in the 40-yard dash (up from 4.74) and improved a half-inch on his vertical at 33.5 inches (up from 33).
"I felt like I had a much better day here at pro day," said Amaro. "I felt a lot more comfortable here in Lubbock. I did really well in the pass-catch, the 40 and everything. I'm really happy with the way everything happened today."
Kerry Hyder also used today's pro day to improve in a couple of categories from his appearance at the NFL Combine. Hyder improved his vertical leap by a half-inch to 30 inches and dropped his 40-yard dash time down from 5.10 to 5.00.
Bruce Jones ran the best 40-yard dash of the day as he clocked in at 4.50. He also registered the best vertical leap at 41 inches.
The 2014 NFL Draft is scheduled for May 8-10 at Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY. Live coverage begins at 7 p.m. on the NFL Network and ESPN.
