Faulk impresses at pro day

Pittsburg, KS-For two years, Jeremy Faulk wreaked havoc on opposing quarterbacks in the Jayhawk Conference. On Thursday, the former Garden City Community College defensive lineman showed off those skills in front of dozens of pro scouts at Pittsburg State's Pro Day.

"We are very proud of Jeremy," Broncbusters Head Coach Jeff Sims said. He definitely performed well."

Faulk recorded an 8'11 broad jump and notched a 31.5 vertical. He did 33 reps at 225 lbs. on the bench press, falling two shy of the NFL-combine best for defensive lineman of 35. The 2015 national defensive player of the year also ran a 5.01 40-yard dash.

"This gives Jeremy a measuring point of the work he needs to put in between now and camp," Sims said. "He is very motivated."

Scouts from several teams, including the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals were on hand to watch Faulk. The Jets and Cardinals both had one-on-one interviews with him following his workout.

The NFL Draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 27 in Philadelphia. The First round will be on Thursday; rounds two and three on Friday and four through seven on Saturday.
