WATCH: Bryant's Pro Timing Day Experience
EVANSTON, Ill. -- Corbin Bryant and Quentin Davie were among seven former Northwestern football players who worked out for 28 NFL scouts Tuesday at Northwestern's Pro Timing Day.
The 'Cats ran the 40-yard dash and were put through positional drills inside Northwestern's Trienens Hall facility before moving to the weight room for additional tests. Bryant performed an impressive 31 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press, above the average for defensive tackles at the 2011 NFL Combine.
"It was a tough day," Bryant told NUsports.com. "But Northwestern taught me to go as hard as you can for as long as you can. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, so why waste it?"
"Pro Day is your opportunity," Northwestern Head Coach Pat Fitzgerald told his former players prior to the workouts. "You've always dreamed of it and looked forward to it, so hopefully you can go out and perform and enjoy the day."
Bryant's former Northwestern teammate, linebacker Quentin Davie, also worked out for scouts Tuesday. Davie will be featured on the new Big Ten Network show Path to the Pros, a four-part series that debuts Wednesday (March 9) at 8 p.m. CT.
The 30-minute show will profile four former Big Ten players, including Davie, as they prepare for the next level of their careers. BTN crews were granted exclusive access to workouts, meetings and interviews with the players.
