Scouts representing the Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, Oakland Raiders, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to Florida A&M to review potential football prospects.
Devonte Terry Johnson, Shaun Ward and Damien Fleming were at the center of the scouts’ attention.
The talent showcase was in Tookes Center. The players were assessed by their vertical jumps and bench press, followed by outdoor testing which included the shuttle run and the 40-yard dash.
Terry Johnson, Defensive Back for FAMU, and recent graduate said he was pleased with his overall pro day results.
“There definitely was a good crowd today, and I would like to thank my teammates and everyone who came to support,” said Johnson.
Pre-workout favorites, Casey Glines, Demont Buice, and Vasty Paul, got the opportunity to make their bid to play at the next level.
Damien Fleming, FAMU quarterback who has had a career high this season with 6,954 yards passing and 50 touchdowns, made his presence known on the field today.
“I feel like I did pretty well out there today. I had a few mess-ups but I’m pretty excited about some of the draws I had today,” said Fleming.
Linebacker Coach Michael Vite was pleased with the attention the senior Rattlers got. "I fully expected the boys to play their best, and they exceeded my expectations," Vite said.
The 2015 NFL Draft will be held in Chicago, IL, from Thursday, April 30 through Saturday, May 2.
