Gators Football pro day results

Gators football program held its annual Pro Day Monday. Significantly, Florida hosted 16 total players for its 2022 Pro Day with NFL general managers, coaches and scouts in attendance. Notable names include Zachary Carter, Malik Davis, Stewart Reece and Antonio Valentino.

Representatives from 28 of 32 of the NFL teams were observing the action. Notably, Jaguars’ defensive line coach Brentson Buckner and running back coach Bernie Parmalee were present.

Defensive lineman Zachary Carter, running back Dameon Pierce and cornerback Kaiir Elam drew the most attention from observers.

Players participated in today’s Pro Day on artificial turf, although it didn’t seem to help improve players’ times. Crucially, Carter ran a 4.99 at the NFL Combine in March but was unable to replicate that score.

Kaiir Elam did not participate in the drill, keeping his time of 4.39 at the combine, as did Pierce, who ran a 4.59.

The Vertical Jump

Kaiir Elam: 37.5″

Tyrone Truesdell: 25.5″

Antonio Valentino: 29.5″

Stewart Reese: 24″

Nick Sutton: 30.5″

Malik Davis, who was not invited to the NFL Combine, put impressive numbers on paper for scouts. Critically, he posted the second-best jump among all participants at the combine behind Iowa State’s Breece Hall. As a result, the Tampa native is set to meet with a host of teams including the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Kaiir Elam, who only ran his 40-yard dash at the combine, was also able to showcase his talents in the drill. Markedly, his record would tie USC cornerback Chris Steele’s, good for the fourth-best among all participants.

Antonio Valentino: 4.69s

Stewart Reese: 5.15s

Nick Sutton: 4.66s

Zach Carter: 4.30s

Carter’s time of 4.30 seconds would put him as the fourth-best among all defensive end participants at the combine. Against defensive tackles, Carter’s time would have been the best score at the combine.
