BlainThePain Posted March 14, 2007 Report Share Posted March 14, 2007 http://www.draftdaddy.com/blog/blog.cfm Ohio University tight end Rudy Sylvan's Pro Day numbers were very impressive. At almost 6' 4" and 282 pounds he ran a 4.77, put up 33 reps on the bench press, broad jumped 9-8 and displayed a 34.5" vertical leap. That's explosion, even by Pat Kirwan's standards: vertical + broadjump + bench > 70.I speak with a lot of folks in the industry and I crunch a lot of athleticism numbers. Sylvan was a prospect I identified a while ago as a possible offensive line convert. He's a devastating run blocker, tough as nails and strong as an ox. He's capable of making a few explosive plays down the field, but he's not really a natural pass catcher.Will he get drafted high? No. Will he be drafted at all? Maybe in the 7th round, based on those tremendously explosive numbers. But make no mistake about it, he's a fascinating long term prospect.
