KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Sam Beal didn't have very long to prepare for his Pro Day workout.
While players who participate in the NFL Draft Combine or hold their own private workouts for NFL teams often have moths to prepare, Beal was forced to get ready in a much shorter amount of time.
The Grad Rapids native filed to enter the Supplemental Draft on June 6th, giving him just three weeks to train for his tryout.
Still, all 32 NFL teams were on hand in Kalamazoo on Thursday afternoon for Beal, with around 50 NFL scouts and front office personnel watching the talented cornerback workout.
Beal posted impressive numbers: He was timed at 4.40 and 4.51 in the 40-yard dash, recorded a 37-inch vertical and he weighed in at 178 pounds. His hands measured at 9 inches and his broad jump measured 10 feet and 6 inches. His short shuttle time was 4.09 seconds and he completed the 3-cone drill in 7.11 seconds.
The Ottawa Hills high school grad was a 2nd team All-MAC selection last season for the Broncos. He finished 2017 with 26 tackles, two interceptions, three tackles for loss, one forced fumble and 10 pass breakups.
Beal decided to enter the Supplemental Draft because his eligibility being in jeopardy for the fall because he didn't meet the minimum credit specifications at WMU.
The NFL Supplemental Draft is Wednesday July 11th at 1 p.m.
