PRO DAY: 2018 Fordham Rams [On Location Exclusive]

Fordham pro day is always circled on the calendar due to the array of small school players from the area invited to participate and this year was no different with 17 confirmed NFL teams in attendance. Due to the bad weather, the workout was moved to Columbia University in the new Bubble at the Baker indoor facility. The workout occurred following a two-hour women’s lacrosse practice, so the turf had its share of soft spots, which didn’t benefit the players.

Teams in attendance included: ARZ, ATL, BUF, CLE, DEN, DET, GB, HOU, JAX, NYG (4 reps), NYJ (3 reps), OAK, IND, SEA (2 reps) SF, TEN, WAS

Chase Edmonds, RB, Fordham

Number: #22 | Hometown: Harrisburg, PA | HT: 5087 | WT: 200 | L-Drill: 7.00 | SS: 4.19 | Agent: Casey Muir, Octagon

Stood on his combine times; ran the three-cone and short shuttle. Showed off his versatility in positional drills, lining up in the backfield, in the slot, on the boundary and catching everything in his direction. He has drawn a ton of interest from around the league and met with at least 28 NFL teams at the combine. He could play a similar role to that of Danny Woodhead at the next level, capable of playing a variety of positions and special teams. Appears to be a solid mid-round selection.

Anthony Coyle, OT, Fordham

Number: #78 | Hometown: Staten Island, NY | HT: 6043 | WT: 298 | Hand: 1014 |Arm: 3228 | Wing: 7758| BP: 29 | VJ: 27” | BJ: 8’3 | Forty:5.44/5.41 | L-Drill: 7.75 | SS: 4.72 | Agent: Jordan Byrd, Exclusive Sports Group

Measured in with short arms, which means he will most likely kick inside at the next level. He took reps serving as center, both in shotgun and with the quarterback lined up underneath. He appeared to have good lower body strength and did above average in the mirror drills. A four-year starter, who is known for his work ethic and had quite a few teams approach him after the workout—he’ll be competing for a spot on one of the 32 come August.

Pat Afriyie, DE, Colgate

Number: #37 | Hometown: Sandy Hook, CT | HT: 6010 | WT: 230 | Hand: 0900 | Arm: 3314 | Wing: 7514 | BP: 19 | VJ: 33” | BJ: 10’2 | Forty: 4.81/4.81 | L-Drill: 7.40 | SS: 4.53 | Agent: Matt Marino, EMG Sports

Did both defensive line and linebacker drills, showcasing fluidity while moving through the bags and demonstrating the ability for quick change of direction. Possesses a nice wide frame, to go along with athleticism and instincts. After playing defensive end in college, his size transitions to outside backer at the next level, so he will need a defined role. He showed great toughness this past year playing in eight games, despite suffering torn ligaments in his right ankle during the season opener and enduring a sprained right ankle in the fifth game of the season. He played in 44 career games, making 29 starts, collecting 163 tackles and 26.5 sacks—had five forced fumbles during his sophomore campaign.

Lord Hyemang, DL, Columbia

Number: #95 | Lakeville, MN | HT: 6032 | WT: 286 |Hand: 0878 | Arm: 3378 | Wing: 7800 | BP: 28 | VJ: 33” | BJ: 9’5 | Forty: 4.84/4.78 | L-Drill: 7.37 | Sixty: 11.91| Agent: Sean Stellato, SES

A body-beautiful specimen who flashes on tape but has some stiffness to him and limited flexibility. His change of direction was a bit shaky during bag drills but he is rocked up and will show spurts of athleticism that want to make you believe that with some coaching up, his best football is ahead of him. At the very least, NFL teams will want to bring him in on a tryout basis to get a good look at him.

Kevin Anderson, QB, Fordham

Number: #14 | Hometown: Boca Raton, FL | HT: 6007 | WT: 208 | Hand: 968 | Arm: 3048 | Wing:7500 | VJ: 26” | BJ: 8’4 | Forty: 5.13/5.19 | L-Drill: 7.25 | SS: 4.53 | Agent: Lawrence McGivney, MK Sports & Entertainment

Connected on most of his short-to-intermediate throws, a couple of balls were behind but the accuracy was there. The deep ball is where he struggled, with at least five balls off the mark, whether it was a combination of bad field turf, unfamiliarity with the receivers or inaccuracy, is to be determined. He moved well throwing the ball on the run and had a crisp three-step drop—his five step drop could use longer strides on the fourth and fifth steps, he did a limited amount of seven step drops. Had to appreciate his hard head-fakes in non-game action and enthusiasm for the game. A three-year starter, he played 30 games during the past three seasons, completing 63.6 percent of his passes, while tallying 7,663 passing yards, 73 touchdowns and 18 interceptions.
