Does anyone know how some of the other Hens did in their Pro Day, such as Kane, Papale, Adewusi, Williams, Jefferson, etc.?

Vinnie Papale had the fastest 40 time of the day.

Vinny is just like his dad- he's got the right stuff- hope he catches on.

Surprised at his 40 time, he appeared to be more of a possession type receiver. I didn’t expect him to run a similar time to Adderley and Walker.

Word is Adewusi had the best 40 time and he, Reeder and Walker all helped themselves.

As did Vinny:

Walker and Reeder made some $ today.

I think Joe Walker could be a good NFL WR. But the scouts see him as. 6’3 DB.

Joe C likes big DB’s...

Troy looked even more of a beast in cams photos than last season! The NFL scouts like to see kids who put in the time and are intelligent and coachable. Troy hits all those buttons. Now he just needs a team who can utilize his particular abilities and coach him up a bit for their needs. He represents our university par none as a quality kid. No knocks on the rest of our quality kids who are awesome.

I think Joe is a natural WR who can fill in as a DB in a pinch at the next level. He should land a UDFA priority deal and probably will be a PS candidate for the 2019 season to refine his skills at both positions....

He had a good day. He and Joe really helped themselves. Troy’s got a shot at getting drafted.

Charles Scarff was also invited to the Eagle’s Pro-Day and met with the Bucs as well.

On a side note, I loath the Eagles...

The Athletic had a write up on various Pro Days, including ours. https://theathletic.com/902864/2019/04/ ... y-circuit/
Here's what they wrote about Walker and Scarff:

Walker-
Walker is one of the more athletic and versatile players in the draft class and is flying under the radar. What was impressive during the Pro Day was how he did the full WR drills AFTER doing the full defensive back drills. Teams wanted to see him work out at both, and he killed it on both ends.
This is all interesting because Walker came into Delaware as a quarterback, and played quarterback until this past season before making the move to wide receiver. All he did was lead the team in receiving with 670 yards, scoring four touchdowns. At his size, in conjunction with his upside at the position, Walker could be this year’s version of Mohamed Sanu.
Also, an interview from Pro Day with Joe- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nAbfP_kLLc

Scarff-
Scarff transferred to Delaware from Rutgers and became a big-time weapon for the Blue Hens. This past season he scored seven touchdowns, finishing third in receiving yards.
Scarff can play both inline and be flexed, but is better suited inline. He was a prime red zone target within their offense and could carry the same value as a pro player.
