The Iowa State Cyclones took the field on Wednesday for their Pro Day. This is the last chance for many of the Draft Day hopefulls. Although some of them will receive one on one workouts with coaches. There are three players that participated that should receive strong consideration from the Cowboys.
A.J. Klein participated in most drills while not running the 40 yard dash, however he did run a 4.66 at the NFL Combine earlier this year. Klein benched 225 pounds with 24 reps, which was 4 reps better than his combine attempt. In his other drills Klein had a 33 inch vertical jump. Even playing the inside linebacker position could easily make the adjustment to outside, much like his teammate Jake Knott.
Jake Knott is coming off a torn labrum that cost him the final four games of his junior season. Knott didn’t record a 40 time after tweaking his hamstring on his first attempt. Knott followed up with 20 reps at 225 pounds and a 34 inch vertical.
Jake McDonough who could be an undrafted free agent or a late round pick, had a very impressive Pro Day. On the bench he pounded out 37 reps, 27.5 inches on the vertical jump and a 5.24 40 time. At 6’4” and 290 pounds is a big defensive end, who if needed could play inside the three technique.
