GAINESVILLE -- The Gators held their annual Pro Day on Tuesday.
Vernon Hargreaves III and Jon Bullard dominated the day, as 15 former Florida players participated in the showcase.
Here are some unofficial results, as well as sights and sounds from the event.
(UNOFFICIAL) 40-YARD DASH TIMES
SS Keanu Neal: 4.52
WR Demarcus Robinson: 4.58
DB Brian Poole: 4.49
LB Antonio Morrison: 5.0
TE Jake McGee: 4.76
* Morrison, who missed the NFL Combine due to an illness, had 23 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press -- that would’ve been the third-best mark in Indianapolis. McGee, who also sat out the combine, showed well in positional drills, flashing his strong hands and a sleeker physique.
* Robinson clocked an almost identical 40-time as to what he ran in Indy (4.59). His vertical jump, 20-yard shuttle and broad jump were basically the same, too.
* Tailback Kelvin Taylor improved his bench press by two reps, hitting 17 on Tuesday.
* Defensive end Alex McCalister gained six pounds (up to 245) from his measurements at the combine.
* Hargreaves is meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars on April 5 and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on April 7.
* Neal said he received a second-round draft grade by the NFL Advisory Committee.
* Brian Poole has meetings lined up with New England, Tennessee, Arizona and others.
“This is for real. This is crazy.’ It was exciting, sitting in front of John Elway and sitting right in front of him and talking ball with him. It’s a dream come true. You’ve got this Hall of Famer and you’re sitting right in front of him talking ball just chatting it up. It’s still surreal to me honestly. I’m really humbled and blessed to have this opportunity.”
-- Safety Keanu Neal
“The type of guy like me, these numbers and all that stuff ain’t going to show what type of player I am. You put the film on to see what type of guy I am. I’m a competitor. For what I had, I could have easily said I wasn’t going to do any of this stuff, but I’m a competitor and I wanted to come out here and compete with guys I’ve been doing it with for four years.”
-- Linebacker Antonio Morrison
“I'm kind of late first, early second [round] guy, so I don't want to be that guy sitting there [alone in the green room].”
-- Defensive tackle Jon Bullard
FORMER GATORS IN THE HOUSE
A number of former Florida players came out and supported their buddies and old teammates Tuesday, including Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam, Washington Redskins tailback Matt Jones, San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Trenton Brown and Tennessee Titans safety Cody Riggs.
Chris Rainey, Tevin Westbrook and Mack Brown were also in attendance.
“Isn’t that cool,” UF coach Jim McElwain said.
“I love it. As I’ve said, look I just happen to be sitting in the chair. These former players are the ones that put this program together. To see all of them come out and support their former teammates, I just really think that’s the way it should be. That’s what family is all about.”
