Fresno State's Pro Day

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno State's pro day saw 13 Bulldogs and three other local football players showcase their talents in front of dozens of scouts and Red Wavers.

Guys like Cody Wichman, Donovan Lewis, and Tevin McDonald just to name a few. Senior Derron Smith made his pro day count. He returned from a sports hernia injury that prevented him from participating in the NFL combine.

"Exciting. Nerve-racking. Tiring. Everything. Just the work that I've put in. That other players around the nation have put in. You know, whether it's for the combine or for pro day. It all comes to this. You just go out here and compete and give it your all. No matter what the times are, or whatever it is, you know, you just have to go out here and compete and enjoy it. You know, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. And I definitely enjoyed it." said Smith.

Defensive Lineman Tyeler Davison went to the combine in Indy. He only participated in the 40-yard dash and position drills today, and felt good about his outlook on the NFL draft. Davison is a versatile lineman who's played most of his snaps as a nose guard.

"You know, they want to talk about how you play physically. Your athleticism, how long your arms are. Everything. How big your hands are. They also want to talk about how you can pick up plays and how you play your defense. They want you to explain their defense to them. Your technique to them. You know, there's a lot that goes into it. Your personal background. Your personal life. Your family. They don't leave any stone unturned, pretty much, so. They ask about anything they can." added Davison.

On offense, all eyes saw Josh Harper make some nice catches under the sun. The tall wide receiver is looking to impress scouts in a position that will be as deep and as talented as any position in this year's upcoming draft.

"My main goal is to improve on my 40 time that I posted at the combine. And I did that. And jump higher, those were my main two goals and I accomplished my goals. So, I feel pretty good about it. Aww man, it was a lot more relaxing, the combine, you know it was just overwhelming. And you really didn't know what to expect there. But after going through something like that, and this being kind of the same thing that we're going through. It made it a lot easier going through the combine first." said Harper. null
