"University of Louisville tight end Josh Chichester made great strides of accomplishing his "ultimate goal" of playing professional football during the school's pro day Wednesday.
According to his former high school coach, Lakota West's Larry Cox, Chichester measured out at 6-foot-6 235 pounds, had a vertical jump that cleared 37 inches and turned in a 40-yard dash time of 4.58 seconds in front of representatives of 20 NFL teams.
In comparison, his 40-yard time would have tied him for the third place among tight ends during the NFL Combine in Indianapolis in late February. Furthermore, his 37-inch vertical was better than any jump turned in by tight end at the Combine.
Graduated from Louisville with a degree in justice administration in 2010. This past season, Chichester was working on his master's degree."
Not as tall as I had read elsewhere, but still a matchup nightmare. I also like that he was able to remain dedicated to his academics
despite his involvement with football. I think this bodes well for his transition to the pros where the schemes employed are more complicated.
I feel like this guy could be a huge Redzone target and a major steal in the late rds or as an UDFA.
