Zach Gentry’s pro day numbers were better than NFL Combine performance

It was a good pro day for Gentry

Former Michigan tight end Zach Gentry had an NFL Combine to forget in some ways, but it looks like he didn’t throw in the towel, improving upon some things he didn’t do as well as he would have liked to.

Gentry’s combine 40-yard dash was 4.9, and he had a much better time at his pro day. “There were teams that had me in the 4.6 to 4.7’s and that’s where I was at today. I think I was in the low 4.6 to 4.7’s. I wasn’t happy about the times I ran (at the combine) so that’s why I reran it,” Gentry said.

And then there was Gentry’s bench press rep total of 12 at the combine, he improved that as well where it looks liked he upped it to 16.

These totals actually go a long way in the evaluation of a player. In just a few weeks time Gentry got stronger and faster, so it’s reasonable for an organization to think that can be a trend that’ll keep on continuing.
