Several former Cincinnati Bearcats participated in Pro Day at Kettering Health Performance Center this morning, showing off their next level potential in front of 50+ NFL coaches and scouts.
Bearcats sixth-year quarterback Ben Bryant threw to wide receiver prospects Tyler Scott and Tre Tucker, tight end Josh Whyle and running back Charles McClelland for approximately 45 minutes.
Scott and Tucker showed off their elite speed in the 40-yard dash with unofficial times of 4.32 seconds, while linebacker Ivan Pace Jr clocked in with an unofficial time of 4.50 seconds.
It’s difficult to gauge when the prospects will get drafted in the 2023 NFL Draft next month but Pace, Scott, Tucker and Whyle are currently projected to get picked between rounds 2-5.
