And a Missouri State football player impresses NFL scouts at his Pro Day workout in hopes of being drafted. http://chic.clipsyndicate.com/video/playlist/12449/6841348?cpt=8&wpid=2637 KOLR SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- 14 NFL Scouts were at Missouri State's Plaster Stadium Wednesday. It was Pro Day and all eyes were on Dylan Cole. "I've been playing football since I was like 6 or 7 and I have been telling my mom that I was going to go to the NFL since I was like 6 or 7. I never thought I was going to be here, it is absolutely surreal. I can't put it into words. It's something I have wanted to do my entire life," said Dylan Cole. All-American linebacker Dylan Cole took the field at Plaster Stadium, like he had so many times before. Except this time, 14 NFL scouts would be watching for his Pro Day. "I think I turned some heads and impressed them. I think I did what I needed to do, show me athleticism, show my speed and all that good stuff. I'm feeling pretty confident right now. Dylan Cole certainly impressed today with a 10-foot, 5-inch broad jump as well as clocking in with a 4.52 40-yard dash. He also bench pressed 225 pounds 32 times and recorded a 39-inch vertical jump. Numbers that were better than any other linebacker at the combine. "You train for about two or three months for about two or three hours. It wore me out a little bit, but it is all worth it. I'd rather do that from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. than sit a desk from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.," said Cole. Wide receiver Zach Hoover and offensive lineman Riley Shantz also took part of today's Pro Day. "Just trying to show them that a 300 pound man can run a little bit. I think I proved my point. I think I ran pretty well for them. So we will see what happens. Whatever they want me to do, I'll do for them. As long as I get a chance to prove myself and compete, I'll be happy just doing that," said Riley Shantz. Now all these Bears can do is hope. Hope that their resume's strong enough to be called sometime in April's NFL Draft. ---------------- ST. LOUIS, Mo--The St. Louis Cardinals will break spring training camp next week and head north.
