Former CLEMSON wide receiver ROSCOE CROSBY (#25) worked out for scouts at Spring Valley High School in Columbia, South Carolina on Friday morning, July 1st, as between 18-20 teams were in attendance for his "Pro Day"... weighed in at 6013, 218 pounds... he was 6016, 204 pounds at Clemson's Pro Day in early March... ran between 4.45 and 4.52 in the 40... fastest watch read 4.43 and slowest was 4.57... 18 reps of 225 pounds... 35-36" vertical, as he jumped against the side of the wall in the weight room, so various team's added roughly 2" to his jump... 10 1/4" broad jump... agility drills were done on the same grass field, as his 40-times, which was soft and created some slipping and plenty of divots, so a consensus of his times were not immediately made available... free agent NFL quarterback SHAUN KING was in attendance to throw passes to Crosby, but tightness in his (Iliotibial "IT" Band) right leg along with some cramping forced them to complete just 3-5 reps before an on-site rehab physician, Stephan Parker, recommended that he take a break... the physician took members of all 18-20 NFL teams aside to explain the tightness and potential to cause an injury by pushing it on the field... "That is not actually considered an injury, the tightness can occur in the leg from the stress of a workout... it usually just takes a few days of good rehab, which includes rest, ice, compression and elevation, so there should be no lingering ill effects for the athlete", explained a physician we spoke with... it was roughly 90-95 degrees and there was still a lot of humidity left from previous days, so the field was somewhat soft and created a lot of divots... Ã¢â‚¬Å“It was so unfortunate that he wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t completely healthy because his biggest strength is his route-running and the ability to catch,Ã¢â‚¬Â (Shaun) King said in an interview with "The State" on Friday... Carolina, New Orleans, NY Giants, Chicago, Miami and Kansas City seemed to spend more time evaluating him during Friday's workout... Crosby intends to perform for scouts again, a few days before the Supplemental Draft, so that they can see him do positional drills, catch passes and possibly run the 40-yard dash again... this would mirror when running back Tony Hollings (Houston) performed a second workout the day before the 2003 NFL Supplemental Draft... his second workout will be held at the PLEX (741 Fashion Drive, Columbia, SC (803) 360-7300) on July 12th, with a start time of 11AM, this is an indoor complex to protect against possible weather conditions... please contact his agent for any/all additional information, directions or to receive a video copy of last Friday's workout.
I would just like to point out the parts where Shaun King said his biggest strengths are actually his route running and catching ability...which is funny because given his size and athleticism, those would have to be pretty good to be his biggest assets.
Also note that Miami is one of the teams showing the most interest in him.
I hate to toot my own horn here (ok, i love to), but I felt I should point out this thread...which I created a while ago...
