What’s The Score?

From Indianapolis, Indiana

Former Missouri TE Michael Egnew did not stop in the middle of drills on Saturday at the NFL Scouting Combine to ask for an update on the Tigers and Jayhawks from Allen Fieldhouse.

Egnew was running, jumping, lifting and was too busy catching passes for NFL teams inside Lucas Oil Stadium in fourth day of the annual NFL Scouting Combine. It was really the first day for serious on-field work, and that’s what got done with the tight ends, quarterbacks and some h-back types.

While he would have enjoyed and then cringed at the overtime loss by the Tigers to the Jayhawks, Egnew had a very big day in the measurables. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 seconds, fourth best among TEs. His 36-inch vertical leap and 10-foot, 11-inch broad jump was the best among the 14 TEs. He was fourth in the 3-cone drill at 7.03 seconds and in the 20-yard shuttle at 4.32 seconds. In the bench press, Egnew pushed 225 pounds off his chest 21 times, a respectable number for an offensive skill position player.

The best 40-yard dash time turned in was by Oklahoma TE James Hanna at 4.49 seconds. Michigan OL David Molk bench pressed 225 pounds 41 times to top all lifters. Egnews jumps in the vertical and broad were the top marks.
