 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Former Missouri offensive lineman Yasir Durant returned to Columbia a few days ago thinking he was here to participate in the Tigers' pro day. His plans for Tuesday - like most people's - have since changed. The showcase event, set to take place on campus with NFL scouts coming to town to get an up-close look at Durant, Albert Okwuegbunam, Kelly Bryant and other MU football alumni, was canceled late last week due to the novel coronavirus. Gone with it was another chance for Durant, a three-year starter with the Tigers, to raise his stock for the NFL Draft later this year. The 6-foot-6, 330-pound Durant said Monday afternoon he was scheduled to participate in position drills at the Missouri pro day along with testing his vertical jump and strength on the bench press.

One reason why the Missouri pro day was important to Durant was improving upon his combine statistics and showing growth to professional scouts. Durant wanted to finish 24 or 25 reps on the bench press to further prove he's ready to contribute at the next level. "Since they shut everything down, I haven't really been going anywhere to train," Durant said. "I've been doing stuff on my own, push-ups, abs and stuff that I can do at my house that can keep me still working. Not so much of all the extra stuff, all the advanced stuff, because I haven't been able to go anywhere." Durant is looking for another gym to continue his pre-draft workouts while also studying online to finish his degree in sports management at Missouri. - Columbia Daily Tribune
