The best story emerging from PSU Pro Day centers on the performance of former Nittany Lion tight end Mickey Shuler, who has excelled in all drills. He has probably helped himself the most of any of the Penn State players participating in the event. This is particularly encouraging, in light of the talented crop of tight ends offering themselves up to the pros this year.
Shuler did 28 reps of 225 lbs in the bench press, just under 11 feet in the broad jump, and slightly less than 38 inches in vertical leap. His 40 time was 4.62. These numbers would put him in the top five in each category at the NFL Scouting Combine. As representatives from all NFL teams are present at Pro Day, surely someone will take a chance on Shuler, whose dad played in the NFL for 14 seasons.
Meanwhile, another tight end, Andrew Quarless, continues to perform impressively, although both he and Navorro Bowman were questioned by pro scouts about off-field incidents.
Anthony Morelli was present at Pro Day. Bob Flounders speculates about his future here.
