FORT COLLINS, Colo.—Ten former Rams worked out in front of NFL scouts Wednesday at Colorado State’s annual Pro Day.

Draft-eligible athletes who participated were LS Scott Albritton, RB Raymond Carter, OL Joe Caprioglio, P Pete Kontodiakos, WR Marquise Law, LB Mychal Sisson, LB James Skelton, DL Lanston Tanyi, CB Momo Thomas and WR Dominique Vinson.

Albritton completed his eligibility in 2010, while Carter and Sisson concluded their CSU careers in 2011. The seven others played as seniors in 2012.

Six other local athletes also participated, including James Ackel (OL; Adams State), Nate Behrends (DB; Colorado School of Mines), Dominic Gunn (WR; Northern Colorado), Herve Tonye-Tonye (LB; Northern Colorado), Tim Jenkins (QB; Fort Lewis College) and Ryan Jensen (T; CSU-Pueblo).

Twenty NFL scouts were in attendance, representing 17 teams: the Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins.

“We’re excited for our kids,” said Mike Kent, CSU’s head football strength & conditioning coach “I think it shows that Colorado State is important to the National Football League by having 17 teams show up. It gives our kids a chance to live out a dream, and I’m pleased with how they conducted themselves—both their performance and their character.”

The timing and testing sessions began in the Anderson Academic and Training Center, where scouts recorded each player’s height, weight, hand size and wingspan. The players were then evaluated on their vertical and broad jump, followed by the 225-pound bench press.

“We train for the same thing every day, so it was nice to go out and put to use what I’ve been working on,” said Caprioglio, who led all Rams with 27 reps on the bench press. “That took my thoughts off of everyone else, and just on myself.”

The athletes and scouts then headed to the Indoor Practice Facility for the 40-yard dash, pro shuttle, three-cone drill and other drills.

To complete the day's events, players took part in position-specific workouts.

“I feel like I competed well today,” Tanyi said. “It’s not make or break here, though. I feel like I had a good career and have good stuff on tape; now I just have to wait and see.”

The NFL Draft will take place April 25-27 in New York City.
