You never want to make too much of the Penn State Pro Day. Since it is within driving distance, it only makes sense that the Eagles would send plenty of people out to State College to check out prospects.
The Eagles had DB coach Cory Undlin there to check out DB Adrian Amos, who played both S and CB at PSU.
Defensive back coaches from the Eagles, Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans were among those in attendance at Penn State’s Pro Day Thursday. Wilson reports that Amos watched film with the Eagles and Ravens after running a 4:39 40-yard dash.
The Eagles also had Jeff Stoutland there. He ran the OL workouts. He was checking out:
Offensive tackle Donovan Smith (6-5 7/8, 328) ran the 40 in 4.98 and 5.03 seconds. He was unable to continue with the workout because he strained his right hamstring during the second 40 run. Smith is a big guy, with 35 5/8-inch arms and 10 3/8-inch hands.
Offensive guard Miles Dieffenbach (6-4 1/8, 304) ran the 40 in 5.32 and 5.35 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump, but did not do the broad jump due to an ankle injury from Penn State’s win over Boston College in the Pinstripe Bowl.
The Nittany Lions don’t have any elite prospects, but there are plenty of players the Eagles could be interested in. Beyond the assistants, Chip Kelly was there taking in the day’s activities.
