DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Bethune-Cookman’s  pro football hopefuls returned to Municipal Stadium  to take part in Friday’s Pro Day, with some participants turning in “combine numbers” according to Defensive Coordinator/Pro Liaison Yogi Jones.

“Many of these players helped themselves today,” said Jones, who ran the day’s events along with Tim Mingey,  the Jacksonville Jaguars assistant director of college personnel. Mingey was also working for the Blesto Scouting Service and will post the results to other NFL teams.

Among the day’s top performers was wide KJ Stroud, who continued an impressive run through these off-season workouts for pro scouts.

Earlier this month, Stroud  ran a 4.44 40-yard dash at the Rutgers Pro Day, which was attended by scouts from all 32 NFL teams. On Friday, he posted a 39-1/2 inch vertical jump and an 11-foot,4 ½ inch broad jump. He elected not to run the 40 this time.

Friday’s fastest 40-yard dash times belonged to Rashad Payne and Martin Embry III, who each unofficially clocked a 4.44.

The early morning belonged to offensive lineman Lavon McCoy, who delivered an impressive 35 repetitions in the 225-pound bench press. Linebacker Dawud Lane improved his stock with a 4.5 in the 40 and a leap of 10-5 in the broad jump.
