UTEP Football: Roy Robertson-Harris steals show at UTEP's Pro Day

New, 5 comments

UTEP's NFL hopefuls worked out in front of NFL personnel on Thursday.

His 6'6, 255 pound stature has stood out ever since he put on a pair of pads, but on Thursday NFL hopeful, and former Miner defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris stood out for a handful of NFL scouts at UTEP's Pro Day in the Sun Bowl.

Robertson-Harris, posted a 4.8 second 40-yard dash time, 23 repetitions on the bench press, a 7.0 time in the 3-cone drill, a 4.27 time in the 5-10-5 short shuttle and a 35-inch vertical leap.  He also took some field work reps as an outside linebacker for the 49ers.

Those times, and numbers would have placed him in the top-10 at the defensive line spot in the recent NFL Combine.

Representatives from the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals,San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers were on hand, with the Panthers and 49ers holding exclusive interviews with Robertson-Harris.

Other participants were wide receiver Autrey Golden, center  Eric Lee, running back Jeremiah Laufasa, defensive back Kelvin Fisher Jr., long snapper Nick Dooley, tight end Cedrick Lang, and linebacker Jimmy Musgrave took part in Thursday's workouts on the field.

Kelvin Fisher Jr. had the longest standing long jump at 10'2, no other test results were readily available.

Also on hand was former UTEP signee, and former Texas Longhorn M.J. McFarland.

Lang drew the attention of an Arizona Cardinals scout who requested a wonderlic test with the 6'9 former UTEP basketball stud. The Kansas City Chiefs have set up a pre-draft visit with Robertson-Harris.

The NFL Draft is April 28-30 in Chicago.
