Head coach Jim Mora talks about the progress the offense made in the past week, which young players have impressed him, and what his dad might say about the NCAA banning two-a-day practices.
For the 12 UCLA seniors who didn’t get invited to the NFL Combine, Tuesday’s Pro Day was the biggest job interview of their lives.
“This is their Combine,” head coach Jim Mora said.
UCLA hosted its annual Pro Day on Tuesday, welcoming scouts and coaches from all 32 NFL teams, as 17 outgoing seniors worked out to improve their draft stocks. Former UCLA running back Jordan James and punter Matt Mengal also participated in the workout.
Wide receiver Kenneth Walker III had a good day, showing off his impressive speed (some scouts clocked his 40-yard dash in the 4.2-second range) and make a number of good catches in rainy conditions. Despite slipping a few times on the slick turf, linebacker Cameron Judge was approached by an Atlanta Falcon scout after the linebackers drills and was commended on his performance. Judge was also thrilled with his 40-yard dash time that was clocked in the low 4.5-second range.
