Athletes Use Georgia’s Pro Day to Improve Their Times from the NFL Combine
GEORGIA TAILBACK ELIJAH HOLYFIELD SET OUT TO IMPROVE HIS 40 TIME ON PRO DAY
Many athletes at Georgia’s Pro Day today chose to sit out of some of the drills after spectacular performances at the NFL combine, for others this was a chance to show their skills or improve from their combine times.
Specifically tail back Elijah Holyfield after an underwhelming 40 time at the combine.
“I just wanted to improve on my last time, everybody saw at the combine, so just coming in and trying to improve. Yeah I’ve heard 4.6, but I’ve heard 4.8 to 4.7, so I still don’t know the exact number, but teams have what they have and they have the film and I’m going to continue to work to become a better football player,” says Georgia tailback Elijah Holyfield.
For Callaway high school grad, Terry Godwin he chose to sit out of most of the timed events after putting up big numbers at the NFL combine and finished the day off with position drills.
Heading into Pro Day, he still got some advice from former Cavs standout and ex NFL wide out Quan Bray.
“He just told me to go out there and do what I need to do and just go out there and do what God gave me you know I wouldn’t be here without God and just keep focused and keep the main thing, the main thing basically,” says Georgia wide receiver Terry Godwin.
Coach Smart talked on how Godwin has progressed into the draft eligible receiver he has become.
“Terry has gotten bigger, more physical, more confidence. I mean he came in as a really good receiver. I think the biggest thing he had to do was start to change his body and when you look at him now he’s got broader shoulders, ran really well at the combine, unbelievable hands. I mean he catches everything you throw to him, so I think he is a really special player that somebody’s going to get a great player in return with Terry,” says Georgia head football coach Kirby Smart.
The NFL draft is just five weeks away and many Georgia Bulldogs hope to have their name called and we expect to hear a few even go on day one.
