About 17 NFL teams were at Nebraska’s Pro Day. Rex Burkhead, looking to improve on his 4.69, 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine turned in a time of 4.5 and Brett Maher continued to show off his strong kicking leg. A couple of his kickoffs were hitting the back of the endzone. A total of 16 Huskers were on hand for the NFL teams who sent representatives to Lincoln.
In addition to the three Combine participants, the Huskers’ 2012 senior class was represented from the offense by tight ends Ben Cotton and Kyler Reed and offensive guard Seung Hoon Choi. On defense, seven members of last year’s senior class took part in Pro Day including Joseph Carter, Will Compton, Eric Martin, Cameron Meredith, P.J. Smith, Daimion Stafford and Alonzo Whaley. Defensive tackle Baker Steinkuhler was also on hand at the Pro Day, but unable to particpate following knee surgery.
2011 seniors Mike Caputo and Curenski Gilleylen also worked out for the pro scouts.
