2010 NFL Draft: Ryan Wolfe of UNLV Hurt as Buffalo Bills Attend Pro Day
Article by GB Bongiovanni
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, and unfortunately that might be true for NFL hopeful Ryan Wolfe.
The Buffalo Bills traveled down to a unusually windy Las Vegas to attend the UNLV pro day.
One of the most exciting and top prospects out of UNLV is WR Ryan Wolfe.
Wolfe is the first two-time, first team all-conference receiver in school history.
He’s a strong, tough, durable and savvy receiver who is an excellent route runner and has a knack for making the big play. He holds UNLV career records in receptions and receiving yards.
Wolfe was also a top student who earned a spot on the Dean’s List.
He earned his bachelor’s degree in kinesiological sciences and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in sports education leadership.
NFL scouts have plenty of questions about Wolfe, as he broke his foot the last practice before the season finale.
Wolf stated, “Right now there are no real restrictions.”
He also added that doctors on Monday gave him a green light to go all out, but he pulled up in his 40-dash tryout today.
Wolfe pushed up 15 reps on the bench press, posted a 33.5-inch vertical jump and 9’10” broad jump, and then hurt his hamstring during his first 40-yard run and was unable to complete the workout.
Wolfe will schedule a private workout at the end of the first week of April in his hometown of Valencia, California. It has been said he will be working with St. Louis Rams wide receiver Drew Bennett.
He was also scheduled with the Atlanta Falcons tomorrow, but that has been changed to a face-to-face meeting.
The Bills couldn’t fully evaluate Wolfe, who I have seen firsthand make some spectacular catches here in Vegas.
The Bills need to replace WR Josh Reed and have question marks on who will be on the opposite side of Lee Evans in 2010.
Wolfe was the Mountain West Conference career record holder for receptions with 283 and should be worth a late round pickup. His durability has never been an issue until now, and he should prove himself in his California workout.
