. . .

UB enjoyed one of their best seasons in Division 1 history because the Bulls had a lot of exciting talent on the field. Fifteen of those Bulls, and two former UB greats will be featured at UB's Pro Day.

Linebacker Khalil Mack will surpass Gerry Philbin as the highest drafted UB player of all time, but Pro Day will determine how high he will go, could he be #1? Scouts from all 32 NFL teams and 2 CFL teams will be in attendance to see the man who carried UB's defense on his back.

Appropriately, Mack will carry his teammates with him one last time, because the attention he brings can only help as Running Back Branden Oliver, Wide Receiver Alex Neutz, and the rest of the UB Seniors get their chance to impress the scouts and earn their way onto a NFL roster.

Alex Neutz

At 6'3 205, with good speed and good hands Alex Neutz was an All-WNY prospect coming out of Grand Island. Neutz left Buffalo as one of the most decorated receivers to ever put on a Bulls jersey. He finished with back-to-back 60+ reception and back-to-back 1,000+ yard seasons and broke the school record for touchdown receptions. Oh, and he did all this with 4 different Quarterbacks in 4 years at Buffalo.

Pro Day Results: Bench Press: 14 reps 40-yard dash: 4.58

BREAKING - Alex Neutz has pulled a hamstring in his third 40 run and is done for the day (11:00am).

Beau Bachtelle

At 6'4 273 Bachtelle has the size to play DE at the pro level, we'll see if his measurables size up.

Pro Day Results:

Branden Oliver

Branden Oliver, known simply as "Bo" emerged from a field of young backs in a moribund 2010 season. In 2011, Oliver erupted with almost 1400 yards rushing during his sophomore year. By the time the year was over it was obvious that the Florida native was one of the best running backs in the Mid American Conference and all of Division I.

Pro Day Results: Bench press 26 reps 40-yard dash: 4.63

Brandon Murie

The speedy Murie could find his way on an NFL roster as a practice squad or special teams player. Has a hard working reputation that may endear him to scouts.

Pro Day Results:

Carlos Lammons

Lammons played in 41 games recording 49 tackles and recovering 2 fumbles.

Pro Day Results:

Colby Way

Colby Way played DT/DE for the Bulls and despite being tasked with taking on the interior double teams, he played a big mans position with the agility of a smaller player. His long arms allowed him to knock down balls and disrupt passing lanes, and he was able to sack the QB 15 times in the past 3 years.

Pro Day Results: Bench Press: 23 Reps

Derek Brim

Former walk on safety from Buffalo. Brim made 7 solo tackles at Ohio State.

Pro Day Results: Broad Jump: 10' 6.5"

Fred Lee

Fred Lee came into his senior year with 45 receptions for 482 yards and 3 TDs. In 2013, Lee took solid control of the #2 receiver position catching 58 balls for 692 yards and 5 TDs while giving UB a dangerous dual threat passing game. At 6'2 205, South Carolina native Lee reminds me of another Palmetto State receiver, Sidney Rice. Rice ran a 4.51 at his combine 7 years ago, Lee will need comparable numbers to improve his NFL chances.

Pro Day Results: Bench Press: 10 Reps

Jasen Carlson

Jasen Carlson broke his leg during a stellar senior season where despite missing the final five games of the season, he was still named first team All-MAC. Bull Run nation is happy to see Jasen back in action in Buffalo one last time.

Pro Day Results:

Jimmy Gordon

Jimmy Gordon lost playing time in his final two years, but he had the potential to be a serviceable receiving tight end. His pro day performance will be very intriguing.

Pro Day Results:

Khalil Mack

For the first time in UB's recent FBS history, the nation will be watching UB's pro day. Mack's size and humility dazzled at the combine but his numbers were good but not Von Miller 2nd pick great. Mack has a chance to dazzle the scouts at the Pro Day.

Combine Results: 4.65 40-Yard Dash, 23 Bench Press Reps , 40 inch vertical jump, 128 Inch Broad Jump, 7.08 sec. 3 Cone, 4.18 20 yard shuttle.

Pro Day Results: 40-Yard Dash: 4.45, Bench Press: 23 Reps

Naaman Roosevelt

Naaman left UB the most decorated Wide Receiver in UB history, but at a small six foot two-hundred pounds, and with a 4.53 40-yard dash, Naaman didn't do enough to get drafted in 2010.

Roosevelt was signed by the Buffalo Bills in 2010 activated off the practice squad late in the season and remained on the roster until August 2012. Roosevelt signed with the Browns but was cut before the start of the 2013 season.

With the Bills, Naaman played 16 games, caught 25 passes for 396 yards and a touchdown.

Pro Day Results:

Najja Johnson

Najja Johnson was UB's prodigal son. Born in Buffalo but raised in Georgia, he displayed the athleticism and football skill associated with the south and Buffalo's trademark blue collar work ethic.

Najja was UB's most reliable cornerback and his play gave UB's aggressive front seven time to get to the quarterback. When the ball was thrown his way, he was at his best defending the short and intermediate routes which led to 30 pass break ups and 9 interceptions in his final three seasons.

Pro Day Results: 40-Yard Dash: 4.38 Broad Jump: 10' 8.5"

Natey Adjei

How often does a team that owns the rights of a player visit his pro day? Natey Adjei, a non-import 3rd round pick of the Toronto Argonauts from Mississauga came to Buffalo after a stint at the City College of San Francisco. Although he failed to make a major impact at UB, he has squatted over 600 pounds and run a sub 4.4 40-yard dash. If he can still hit the impressive speed, someone will want to pay him to run fast on a football field.

Pro Day Results:

Okoye Houston

The ironman, Okoye Houston was a hard hitting safety who was as comfortable shutting down Running Backs behind the line of scrimmage as he was neutralizing Tight Ends downfield. Houston played in every game of his career at UB and helped led the resurgence of UB's turnover hungry defense.

Pro Day Results:

Tomarris Bell

The track star made 29 tackles, 2 for a loss and broke up 4 passes in his senior year. A long jumper, a high jumper and a member of the 4x100 relay team, Bell's measurables could be dazzling.

Pro Day Results:

Willie Moseley

Willie Moseley was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013, but was cut after rookie camp. Moseley's 2013 pro day garnered interest from 7 NFL teams, hopefully he can turn heads again in 2014 as he strives to show teams what he learned in the past year.
