Birthday Workout

(WBNG Binghamton)

Today is Union-Endicott grad Chandler Jones' 22nd birthday.
And if you haven't picked out a gift yet, might I suggest you not get him any NFL gear. Chan sent this picture out via twitter of the NFL gear he has assembled during his interviews with teams at the NFL combine.

One scout said Jones outperformed expectations during his workout today.
He was in the top 15 in his 40 time of 4.87, and had the 4th best vertical leap among defensive lineman.

He had 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and was tied for fifth with 10-feet in the broad jump.
His bench press was a little low, but one expert said with a reach that is the longest in his class, that was to be expected.

The early projection has Chandler going in the second round of the NFL draft, although many have listed the former Syracuse standout as a darkhorse candidate to vault into the first round.
The draft is held in New York April 26-28.
