University of Cincinnati DE Connor Barwin put on yet another impressive postseason display of his…
Barwin Pushing For First Round Status
At the combine Barwin ran a 4.66 forty and many coaches and scouts felt he'd pass on running at the Bearcats Pro-Day. Barwin, who's been open and upfront about his abilities, shocked many when he announced he was running. In the end Barwin bettered his combine time hitting a 4.48 and a 4.52 on his second attempt.
Connor Running The 40
While many felt Barwin had a chance to enter the first round of the draft, his forty had scouts and coaches whispering he'd just pushed him into the first round without any questions.
While Barwin didn't participate in the other time drills his day was full as coaches worked him out as a linebacker, tight end and defensive end before the day was over.
How important was Barwin to the Pro-Day experience? Very, as head coaches Rex Ryan of the New York Jets and Marvin Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals were on hand along with several of their scouts and a couple of coaches.
Not only were head coaches on hand but also position coaches as Mike Tice (Jacksonville) and Mike Pope ( New York Giants) both worked out Barwin during the days events.
Having seen several teams invite him in for visits, Barwin is excited but keeping a level head about the whole process.
Bearcat Insider will have more on Connor Barwin and the other members of the Bearcats from their Pro-Day experience coming.
