Pro Day March 29
Tony PaulineDraft Analyst Writer
Miami and Ohio headline today’s pro-day schedule.
The big-ticket item at Ohio pro day is defensive end/outside linebacker Tarell Basham, a front-seven player swiftly moving up draft boards.
Position coaches from the Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles were on hand.
Thus far Basham’s marks include 4.64s in the 40 (4.70s at the combine), 4.3s in the short shuttle (4.35s at the combine) and 32.5 inches in the vertical jump (a one-inch improvement). He tipped the scales at 268 pounds, one less than Indianapolis.
Basham met with the Houston Texans and Dallas Cowboys last night. Besides those two teams, he has received a lot of interest from the New England Patriots, Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals.
