Rashan Gary won’t work out at Michigan Pro Day

Michigan defensive end Rashan Gary has already put up all the workout numbers he needs to.

So he’s not going to do anything to change them today.

According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Gary will only weigh in at Michigan’s Pro Day today, standing on his numbers from the Scouting Combine.

That should suffice. The 6-foot-4, 277-pound Gary ran a 4.58-second 40-yard dash and had a 38-inch vertical and a 10-foot broad jump, the kind of explosiveness that typically comes from much smaller men.

His production didn’t necessarily match those traits, as he had just 3.5 sacks and seven tackles for loss last season, but he figures to be a high first-round pick.

  1. There’s oodles and oodles of tape against good competition. He spent a week at the combine. If scouts haven’t figured out Gary by now, they never will. At this point in the process, NFL coaches probably only want to get to know a guy a little better, and he’s available for that. Smart kid. Why risk getting a freak ACL injury?

  2. He won’t be doing much of anything at any Pro Day that he doesn’t do most days anyway. He is a football player, he runs, he cuts,he jumps, he lifts. He is simply content with his numbers and has no reason to risk a poor performance or any other inferior number to what he has already given them. The idea that players in any sport “shut it down” is rather silly.

  3. Yeah, the whole point of the combine is to get top prospects together in one place. The pro days should be for the guys who weren’t invited, and I guess for those who choose to go to the combine but not do the drills.

    He did the song & dance at the combine – everything else a team needs can be gotten from film or they can talk to the guy if they need more of that side of things.
