A Break From the Basketball Madness...

Wanted to give a couple of Tiger Football players to watch out for in the NFL Draft this year. These are the numbers posted on pro day by OL Brandon Pearce and DL Clinton McDonald according to Gil Brandt of


Twelve team representatives were present to watch 15 players work out outdoors on a Tartan track. Here were the two notable prospects:

OT Brandon Pearce (6-5 5/8, 310 pounds) ran a 5.31 and 5.35 in the 40, had a 26½-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 6-inch broad jump, a 4.78 short shuttle, a 7.77 three-cone drill and did 23 bench press reps.

DT Clinton McDonald (6-2, 283 pounds) ran a 4.89 and 4.83 in the 40, had a 38-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 4.50 short shuttle, a 7.25 three-cone drill and did 36 bench press reps. He looked good and definitely helped himself.
