Pro day workouts kicked into full gear today as Northwestern, Kansas State, and Wisconsin Whitewater prospects all took the field for scouts in preparation for the 2021 NFL Draft. My full report on the Northwestern Pro Day was previously published. Below we discuss the pro day workouts at Kansas State and Wisconsin Whitewater, including the fast-rising offensive lineman Quinn Meinerz.

Also note that my latest 2021 NFL Mock Draft was released on Tuesday, projecting all 32 picks of the first round.

Every team in attendance for Wisconsin Whitewater Pro Day to see Quinn Meinerz

Thirty-seven scouts representing all thirty-two NFL teams were on hand at the Wisconsin Whitewater Pro Day. And all eyes were on Senior Bowl star Quinn Meinerz.

Included among the group were offensive line coaches from Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers, Cincinnati Bengals, and New England Patriots. Washington general manager Marty Hurney attended the workout as did San Francisco 49ers Assistant Director of College Scouting Tariq Ahmad.

Most of the NFL personnel on hand made the two-hour trek from the Northwestern Pro Day earlier in the day to watch Quinn Meinerz.  The workout ended just a little while ago, around 6:45 PM EST.

At this point, I have the Meinerz testing numbers.

Tipping the scales at 320 pounds, Meinerz was timed as fast as 4.86 seconds in the forty with a 10-yard split of 1.73 seconds.  His short shuttle was timed at 4.47 seconds and his three-cone was timed 7.33 seconds. He touched 32 inches on the vertical jump and 9-feet-3-inches on the board jump.

Meinerz, who suffered a broken bone in his hand during Senior Bowl practice, intends to bench press next month.

I currently have a fourth-round grade on Quinn Meinerz on my 2021 NFL Draft big board, though that could change over the next month.

A few notes on the Kansas State Pro Day

Northern Iowa transfer Briley Moore was the star of Kansas State’s pro day. The tight end measured 6-feet-4 ¼ inches during training. Today he completed 26 reps on the bench press, 10-feet-5-inches in the broad jump, and touched 37.5 inches in the vertical jump. Moore was unofficially timed in the low to mid 4.6’s in the forty (4.60 to 4.64).

Moore currently has an undrafted free agent grade on my big board.

Meanwhile, Cornerback A.J. Parker measured 6-feet even and 183 pounds. He touched 33.5 inches in the vertical jump and timed 4.54 seconds in the forty. Parker also carries an undrafted free agent grade on my board.
