Over the three months following the end of Texas’ 2019 season, defensive lineman Jamari Chisholm prepared himself for his April 1st Texas Pro Day with Texas’ Strength and Conditioning Staff.
Of course, with the Coronavirus pandemic, the last few weeks of training and the Pro Day was cancelled, but we were able to get Jamari included in a pro day here with my friend CJ McFarland from Onnit Gym here in Austin.
The one oversight on the day was us not getting the height and weight done, but Jamari has those from his time at Texas, measuring at 6′ 4 1/2″, 305-pounds at his last Texas measurement day.
On the day of his pro day, Jamari feels like he was closer to 295, some of that partially due to access to gyms being restricted for three weeks heading into his pro day. An interesting and unusual variable that every one of these athletes sending out mock pro days have had to deal with.
With that, the highlight of his pro day was a 4.91 forty-yard dash, which comes out to a weighted speed score of 101.5 if he’s at 295 pounds. An elite score that would only look more elite with each additional pound on Jamari’s frame.
His full list of scores are:
Vertical Jump: 31″
225-bench: 16 reps
Broad Jump: 8’1″
40-yard dash: 4.91
Attached here is video of that pro day.
Interestingly, in looking at some of the NFL Combine results this year, his results are fairly comparable to what AJ Espenesa of Iowa produced at 275-pounds whom many see as a first round pick.
Some further numbers that Texas collected for him in 2019:
Height: 6′ 4.5″
Body Composition: 17.6% body fat
Top Speed: 19.44 mph
Power Clean: 325-pounds
Back Squat: 600-pounds
Bench Press: 365-pounds
Power Index: 655
Power Factor: 627
Broad Jump 8’10”
So far Jamari’s pro day performance has received a great response and we look forward to what the future holds for Jamari.
