Feature on UH’s Pro Day (tomorrow!)

About UH’s Pro Day, agent Kenny Zuckerman (who represents David Veikune and Ryan Mouton) said:

“This is going to be big.” (HA)

About the importance of their Pro Day, Josh Leonard said:
“It’s a chance to show what I can do.” (HA)

HA Note: “At the combine, Veikune bench-pressed 225 pounds 35 times, the fourth-highest total among the participants. In the 40-yard dash, his announced official time was 4.87 seconds, ninth best among the linemen. But that was the slowest reading by the three timers. One official clocked Veikune at 4.79 seconds.”

About how he will focus on the 40-yard dash and agility drills during Pro Day (he will not bench press), Veikune said:
“I want to run in the low 4.7s.” (HA)

About how teams are looking to see if they can move Veikune to OLB in a 3-4 D, Zuckerman said:
“Teams are coming back because they want to see what he can do as a linebacker.” (HA)

HA Note: “Last week, the Miami Dolphins conducted a private workout for Veikune and USC linebackers Brian Cushing, Clay Matthews and Rey Maualuga. Yesterday, Veikune had a private workout with linebacker coach Don Martindale of the Denver Broncos.”

About his private workout with Broncos coach Martindale, Veikune said:
“It was a 30-minute workout. He wanted to see how I would react as a linebacker in different coverages.” (HA)

HA Note: “Mouton also has drawn a lot of attention after his success in the East-West Shrine Game and NFL Scouting Combine. He had a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and a broad jump of 10 feet, 9 inches. At the combine, Mouton popped his left hamstring at the 32-yard mark of the 40-yard dash. He still finished in 4.48 seconds, fourth best among defensive backs. Mouton’s hamstring is now sound, and he is expected to attempt the 40 again.”

Zuckerman said Veikune and Mouton will
“try to improve on what they did at the combine. At Pro Day, even though they won’t be at home, they’ll be more comfortable.” (HA)

About how he’s been told that his NFL future is at OLB, Sol said:
“That’s why I want to show my speed.” (HA)

About focusing on resistance workouts for his speed training, Sol said:
“It trains your muscles to move faster.” (HA)

Sol said that he’s received inquiries from several NFL teams, but:
“if I run a good 40 time, it will help me a lot.” (HA)
