CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Harvard played host to its Football Pro Day on Wednesday morning at Palmer Dixon Strength & Conditioning Center and Mignone Field. The Crimson had four seniors participate with seven other players from area schools joining in on the action.
Larry Allen, Stone Hart, Richie Ryan and Ben Shoults performed a variety of physical and skill tests in front of 15 scouts representing 12 NFL franchises. NFL teams in attendance included the Arizona Cardinals, Chicago Bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Cleveland Browns, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans.
The draft-eligible athletes went through a Pro Day itinerary that featured weight room tests such as the bench press, vertical jump and broad jump, and positional drills under sunny skies on Mignone Field.
The Harvard quartet looks to make the jump to the National Football League after completing a collegiate career that saw the Crimson post a four-year winning percentage of .675, and end with a three-game winning streak, including a 45-27 victory over Yale at Fenway Park.
Harvard this past season had 10 former players in the NFL, the most of any Ivy League school, with four reaching the postseason.
The NFL Draft is scheduled to run from Thursday, April 25, to Saturday, April 27, in Nashville, Tennessee.
