Northwestern’s Corbin Bryant will work out for Patriots
|03.09.11 at 3:39 pm ET|
Northwestern defensive end Corbin Bryant will apparently be working out for the Patriots sometime in the coming weeks. Bryant, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound defensive lineman out of Chicago, told the Chicago Sun-Times at his Pro Day on Tuesday that he has pre-draft workouts with the Patriots, Bears and Jaguars ready to go. (Kevin Fishbain of Pro Football Weekly initially had this update on Tuesday night regarding Bryant and the Patriots.)
Bryant, who didn’t start playing football until his senior year in high school, was a co-captain for the Wildcats in 2010 where he was an honorable mention All-Big 10 selection. In his college career, he started 35 games at Northwestern, totaling 4.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for a loss.
Bryant and the rest of the NU prospects who worked out on Tuesday reportedly drew the interest of 28 of the 32 teams. According to the Sun-Times, only the Patriots, New York Jets, Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys were not present.
“I’ve gotten some good feedback [from the NFL scouts in attendance],” said Bryant. “They said I looked good running out there. They ask about your past, whether you have been in trouble. I’m lucky enough to have a clean record, so they know I’m a good guy.”
Here’s a Q&A with Bryant from after his Pro Day workout:
