KALAMAZOO, Mich. - The Western Michigan football program opened its facility to 12 National Football League scouts on Tuesday for its annual Pro Day.

Representatives from the Buffalo Bills, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Arizona Cardinals, San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, N.Y. Jets, N.Y. Giants, Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans arrived at the Bill Brown Alumni Football Center to evaluate a group of 10 former Broncos.

Jordan White, who also participated in the NFL Scouting Combine at the end of February was measured at an even 6'0" and 213 pounds.  He only ran the shuttle, 3-cone drill and 40-yard dash on Tuesday, while also running routes and catching passes from former WMU QB Jeff Welsh.  Welsh currently plays professionally overseas.

White shaved time off his NFL Combine 40-yard dash with two unofficial times clocking in at 4.57 and 4.60. Drew Nowak's best unofficial 40-yard dash time was 5.16 seconds.

In the weight room, Anthony Parker hoisted 225 lbs., a Pro Day high 23 times, while tight end Dallas Walker had the second most with 19.  Dervon Wallace had the best vertical jump at 36.5 inches, while Aaron Winchester impressed with 16 reps on the bench.

Armer and Potter conducted their positional drills on in Waldo Stadium, but both also participated in many of the weight room drills as well (vertical, broad jump, bench).  As Potter stated after the Pro Day, not many specialists do those drills so hopefully it set them apart.

White was seen chatting with multiple teams' scouts and the word is most of the conversation had to do with his personality off the field and away from the game.  Nowak said he felt he performed adequately but knows there is more work to be done between now and the end of April.
