Bobcats showcase skills at Pro Day
BOZEMAN, Mont. —
The Montana State University football program hosted a Pro Day for fiver former players on Tuesday morning in Bozeman.
A handful of NFL scouts were in attendance, representing the Cleveland Browns, the Detroit Lions, the Jacksonville Jaguars, the New York Jets, and the Seattle Seahawks. It was the same group of scouts who ran the University of Montana Pro Day on Monday.
The group of former Bobcats who showcased their skills included cornerback Bryce Alley, defensive tackle Brandon Hayashi, running back Nick LaSane, safety Bryson McCabe, and Drummond, Montana, native Mac Bignell, who worked out at linebacker.
These players prepared for the Pro Day by training with Bozeman native, and former NFL linebacker, Dane Fletcher, who now owns and operates The Pitt Training Facility in town.
"That's the best training facility around,” McCabe said. “You've got former (Bobcats) in there, you've got JP Flynn, who's with the 49ers. You’ve also got Brock Coyle with the 49ers, and you've got Tom Brady coming in the summer. You can see we produced, and I give it all to those guys."
"The Pitt has a great staff to get you ready, and not just physically, they get you ready mentally,” Bignell said. “They're confident in what they're doing, and then you just kind of feed off it. You just have pay attention, because they know what they're doing. It just kind of sets the tempo for you, and you've just got to follow their lead.”
Four other players participated in the MSU Pro Day: Carroll College offensive lineman Chris Emter and punter/kicker Dylan Torgerson, MSU-Northern kicker Tommy Langley, and Rocky Mountain College wide receiver Prince Shonola.
The players will now hope to hear their name called at the 2018 NFL Draft, which will be held at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas from April 26-28.
