Redskins Host Players for Workouts at Local Prospect Day

The Redskins are hosting several local players for workouts today

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Redskins will be holding their local prospect day for players that live in the area or attended schools in the area today.  These visits/workouts do not count towards the team's 30 pre-draft visits limit.  Several names should be familiar to Hogs Haven readers like Ryan Delaire, Stefon Diggs, Adrian Amos and others. Below is a list of names, and several tweets that have been floating around for the last week.  We will have more on the prospects later in the day.

8 more days until the draft...

Long ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 to 4.58 seconds at the Terps' Pro Day workout before 30 NFL teams, including New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick and director of player personnel Nick Caserio. Long ran a 4.51 at the NFL scouting combine.

Long has drawn interest from several teams, including the Chicago Bears and Carolina Panthers. Long bench pressed 225 pounds 13 times and had a 34 1/2 inch vertical leap.

He worked out for 30 NFL teams at the Terps' campus Pro Day, where he benched pressed 225 pounds 29 times.

The 6-foot-3, 270-pound former Pennsylvania Defensive Player of the Year performed offensive and defensive line drills and also is working on developing his long-snapping skills.

Myers played in 13 games last season, recording 18 tackles, 2.5 for losses and half a sack. He had five tackles, 1.5 tackles for losses against James Madison and four tackles against West Virginia.

Long-snapping skills could give him more of a chance to make an NFL roster.

Monroe has been invited to attend the Washington Redskins' local prospect day Wednesday. He's also drawn interest from several other NFL teams who have been calling his agent, Tom Santanello.

Stony Brook wide receiver Adrian Coxson has been invited to the Washington Redskins' local prospect day Wednesday, according to sources.

A transfer from Maryland who originally enrolled at Florida before playing two years for the Terps, Coxson has also participated in the New York Jets and New York Giants' local prospect days.Coxson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.28 and 4.33 seconds at his Pro Day workout as representatives from the Green Bay Packers, Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Jets, Chiefs and Buffalo Bills attended.

Coxson also bench pressed 225 pounds 15 times and had a 34-inch vertical leap. Coxson has been training with retired Ravens wide receiver Qadry Ismail for the past few months at The Arena Club in Bel Air.

He caught a career-high 43 passes for 664 yards and six touchdowns last season and was named third-team All-Colonial Athletic Association.

Coxson signed with Florida out of high school before transferring to Maryland when his father went blind due to diabetes. His father died this year from the disease.

Sources said Delaire checked out fine during a medical recheck this weekend in Indianapolis for a groin injury suffered during the NFL scouting combine while running the 40-yard dash in 4.97 seconds and arthroscopic knee surgery in December.

Delaire drew strong reviews for his performance at his campus Pro Day workout, where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.7 to 4.8 seconds with a 33 1/2 inch vertical leap at Johnny Unitas Stadium with Ravens coach John Harbaugh in attendance.

The 6-foot-4 6/8, 227-pounder ran the 40-yard dash between 4.52 and 4.58 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout.

Brown has big hands and long arms, 9 7/8 hand and 34 1/4 arms. He had a 9-8 broad jump and a 32-inch vertical leap.

He bench pressed 225 pounds 11 times and had a 6.88 three-cone drill and a 4.19 short shuttle.

Brown is regarded as a priority free agent with an outstanding size-speed combination.

Whitehead's stock continues to rise following his pro-day performance April 3 at Florida Atlantic University.

Whitehead ran a 4.41 40 and bench-pressed 225 pounds a personal-best 20 times in front of representatives from 26 NFL teams, including the Bengals and the Redskins.

NFL teams like Whitehead as a receiver and as a return specialist, two things he excelled at last season with FAU.

He was an all-Conference USA choice at wide out after catching a conference-high 76 passes. He also led the team in all-purpose yardage and scored FAU's first touchdown off a punt return since 2001 with a 73-yard return against Old Dominion.
