Will Yeatman stands Out on Pro day at College Park

from terrapintimes.com:

Beyond the two Terps (Torrey Smith and Da’Rel Scott) that drew the most expected attention at Maryland’s Pro Day last Wednesday on campus was senior tight end Will Yeatman, who may have made the best case for himself for a shot at the next level.

Yeatman, who first attended Notre Dame to play both lacrosse and football, transferred to Maryland to play two seasons of lacrosse and one, last year, of football.  After the season, the 6-6 1/2, 270-pound Yeatman headed back to his native California to work out with Velocity Fitness Center in Carlsbad to prep himself for the next level.

Specifically, Yeatman’s numbers last week in front of the scouts were: 4.75 40 yard dash, a 28.5 inch vertical, and 16 reps on the bench press of 225 lbs. Yeatman also measured with a 34 ¾ inch wingspan and 11 ¾ inch hands.  “I’ve lost about six pounds since the season but I think, overall, I’m down eight pounds but I’ve put some muscle back on. I feel good and all of the teams like me where I’m physically.” The Terps one-year stud has heard from a lot of teams.

The buzz was generated when the scouts saw Yeatman run and catch passes and block in the drills on the field. He had a one-handed behind his body, left-handed, which is his off hand, which he snatched out of the air, among others that showed his soft hands as well as his balance and athleticism downfield.  He is a big target that moves well. Some of the early talk is possible mid-to-late round pick for Yeatman.

    if yeatman is right handed his left hand may be his off hand throwing but maybe not in catching. think of playing baseball. if you are right handed you catch with your left hand.

    [...] tight end, after he measured 6-6/270 at his pro day. He likely caught the Falcons eye with a strong pro day workout on March 16. Categories: Draft Central Tags: draft, interest, workout Comments (0) [...]
