Nebraska Pro Day 2021: Sixteen NFL teams on hand to see OT Brenden Jaimes and others

Tuesday was a busy day on the road to the 2021 NFL Draft, as several schools held pro-day workouts around the country. That includes out in Lincoln, where the 2021 Nebraska Pro Day was held at the Hawks Championship Center. So let’s get into the latest buzz from the session, as Nebraska’s 2021 draft prospects worked out in front of over a dozen NFL teams.

Sixteen teams were on hand for the event to watch five players workout. Included among them was offensive tackle Brenden Jaimes, who was coming off a terrific performance at the Senior Bowl in January.

Workout numbers for offensive linemen Brenden Jaimes and Matt Farniok

Jaimes has been struggling with a right calf strain recently. He completed 25 reps on the bench and touched 30.5 inches in the vertical jump. Additionally, Jaimes posted a 9-feet-4-inch broad jump after measuring 6-feet-5-inches and 298 pounds. His shuttle time clocked 4.51 seconds with 7.51 in the three-cone — both respectable marks considering his leg injury.

Jaimes is my highest-graded Husker draft prospect, currently ranked just outside my top 150 players in my 2021 NFL Draft player rankings.

Matt Farniok, the Cornhuskers’ other lineman, measured 6-feet-5 ¼ inches and 311 pounds at Nebraska’s 2021 Pro Day. He completed 28 reps on the bench, touched 33 inches in the vertical jump and 8-feet-9-inches in the broad. His 40-yard dash clocked as fast as 5.20 seconds with 4.38 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.14 seconds in the three-cone drill.

The New England Patriots sent their offensive line coach to the workout, who put Jaimes and Farniok through their position drills.

Cornerback Dicaprio Bootle, my highest ranked 2021 Nebraska prospect on the defensive side of the ball, measured 5-feet-9.5-inches and 180 pounds. He touched 36.5 inches in the vertical jump and 10-feet-6-inches in the broad jump. He also completed 16 reps on the bench.

Bootle’s 40-yard dash time came in at 4.44 and 4.45 seconds. He also posted a short shuttle of 4.03 seconds and a three-cone time of 6.77 seconds.

Tight end Jack Stoll, meanwhile, measured 6-feet-3.5-inches and 247 pounds at the 2021 Nebraska Pro Day. He timed 4.60 and 4.70 seconds in the 40-yard dash — much faster than anticipated. His three-cone time also clocked a swift 6.86 seconds.

The New York Jets, Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions, and Dallas Cowboys were on hand. Also in attendance were the Washington Football Team, Denver Broncos, Las Vegas Raiders, and Philadelphia Eagles among others.
