UCLA's Price headlines Tuesday's pro day workouts
Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy may get all of the attention, but there are several other very talented players that help to make this year’s defensive tackle crop one of the deepest the NFL draft has seen in years.
UCLA’s Brian Price—one of the “other” defensive tackles in this year’s class—will be the center of attention in Westwood Tuesday afternoon as the Bruins host their annual pro day workout.
The 6’2”, 293-pound Price recorded 43 tackles (36 solo) and seven sacks for the 7-6 Bruins in 2009. In three years at UCLA, the junior amassed 92 stops, 12 sacks and four forced fumbles.
Currently the NFP’s No. 3-rated defensive tackle prospect, Price is known more for his bull-rush and ability to push the pocket than he is for his run-stopping skills.
Also in action Tuesday will be Oklahoma State wide receiver Dez Bryant, who is scheduled to work out for NFL personnel in his hometown of Lufkin, Texas.
In addition to Price and Bryant, here’s a look at the other schools hosting pro day workouts on Tuesday:
1. Alabama (this is a supplement to the March 10 workout)
2. Coastal Carolina
4. Texas Southern
5. Texas State
