The Stats Are In: NFL Football Pro Day 2022

Published

Twenty-one scouts from 18 NFL teams converged on the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility on Tuesday afternoon.

The WVU Football program opened its doors to scouts from the Packers, Steelers, Giants, Jaguars, Chargers, Browns, Chiefs, Titans, Lions, Dolphins, Broncos, Commanders, Texans, Falcons, 49ers, Raiders and two others in hopes that its players could find new homes. On display, the talents of former WVU football players Leddie Brown, Evan Staley, Tyler Sumpter, Alonzo Addae, Sean Mahone, and Scottie Young.

Here’s how the six fared.

Running Back Leddie Brown

Brown, 5’11.68″, 215 pounds, had previously tested his 40-yard time at the NFL Scouting Combine. He came away from that event with a 4.64-second time and opted instead to focus on ball handling and precision in front of today’s collection of scouts.

His 20-yard shuttle official time was 4.21, the fastest of the bunch, and his 3-cone time was 7.03 seconds. His vertical jump was the highest of the Mountaineer crew at 36.5 inches. His individual measurements were as follows: arm (31.58 in.), hand (10 in.) and wing (76.38 in.), the latter two of which were the highest in the group.

Brown benched another day high with a whopping 18 reps. The second closest was Young with 14 reps.

Safety Sean Mahone

Mahone, 5’11”, 203 pounds, put on a show today. His 40 time was the fastest of today’s competition at 4.56 seconds. His other times, on the 20-yard shuttle and the 3-cone, were middle of the pack, at 4.27 and 7.05, respectively. His broad jump, 9’8″, tied Alonzo Addae for the lead, and his vertical jump came in at 32 inches, an inch higher than fellow safety Scottie Young. On the bench, he maxed out at 13 reps.

Mahone’s arm and wingspan are 31.25, second only to Brown, and 74 inches, respectively; his hand length checks in at 9.68 inches, also second to Brown.

Safety Alonzo Addae

Addae, 5’10.38″, 184 pounds, recorded the quickest 3-cone of the group, at 7.01 seconds, and a 4.23-second 20-yard shuttle. His vertical recorded at 34 inches, while his broad jump tied for best at 9’8″. His 40-yard came in at 4.58 seconds, only second to Mahone.

His arm and wingspan are 30 and 70.5 inches, respectively, and his hands measured at 9 inches even.

Safety Scottie Young

Young, 5’10.5″, 199 pounds, recorded arm and wingspan lengths of 30.78 and 75.5 inches, respectively, as well as a hand length of 9.5 inches. His bench reps topped at 14, and his 40-yard dash time was 4.68 seconds, bringing up the rear of today’s competition. His vertical jump also landed last at 31 inches and his broad jump was 9’2″, the shortest distance.

His footwork drills, the 20-yard shuttle and 3-cone, registered 4.35 and 7.11 seconds, respectively. On the bench, Young redeemed himself with a second-best of 14 reps.

Kicker Evan Staley and Punter Tyler Sumpter

The Special Teams unit spent time both outside and inside Caperton kicking and punting. Ten minutes each secured their impact on the scouts.

Staley, officially marked at 6’0.78″ and 196 pounds, brought up the lower end of the hand, arm, and wingspan statistics with 9, 29.38, and 72.78 inches respectively.

Sumpter produced similar body measurements. Although significantly shorter than Staley’s tall, lanky stature, Sumpter’s 5’9.25″, 220-pound frame showed he could boot the ball. After measuring his upper body at 8.68 in. (hand), 30 in. (arm), and 73.78 in. (wingspan), his lower body smashed his collection of kicks and punts. He finished 12 field goals with nine makes, and nailed punts in the consistent high 40s and mid-50s.

Mountaineer fans can tune in to see these six athletes prepare for the next step when the 2022 NFL Draft goes live on Apr. 28.
