There’s no rest for the weary, as less than 24 hours after the NFL Scouting Combine officially ended, more than a dozen teams made their way to Miami, Ohio, for the Miami RedHawks pro day workout on Monday. Miami did not have a single player at the Combine last week, but teams were interested in two particular players yesterday: defensive lineman Doug Costin and placekicker Sam Sloman.
Costin, who was graded as a priority free agent by scouts before the 2019 season, is a three-technique who measured 6-2 1/2 inches and 291 pounds. He completed 24 reps on the bench and timed 5.20 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 4.51 seconds in the short shuttle, and 7.30 seconds in the three-cone.
The Los Angeles Chargers, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, and Pittsburgh Steelers all spent time with Costin.
Sloman, who kicked a 64-yard field goal during the FBS All-Americans Tropical Bowl in January and booted one from 61 yards yesterday, actually had three special teams coaches work him out last Wednesday, as the trio drove to Miami, Ohio, from the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.
I’m told the Indianapolis Colts had their special teams coach on hand Monday.
