Late Round Tackle

Recommended Posts

Thought he might go undrafted, but not anymore


2 articles before the pro day, 2 after.  Sad that we are not represented there however.  Thinking he could redhirt a bit this year and possibly start the next.  He will probably be a 49er, since they have a dozen picks










McGill University OL attracts nine NFL teams to Canada

Posted: March 27th, 2014 | Gil Brandt | Tags: Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, McGill University, pro day

Nine teams were present for the pro day event Wednesday at McGill University in Canada: the Jets, Eagles, Raiders, Chiefs, Packers, Bengals, Cardinals, 49ers and Bills. The player they came to see was an offensive lineman named Laurent Duvernay-Tardif.

Duvernay-Tardif measured 6-foot-5, 298 pounds, which was 23 pounds less than his weight at the East-West Shrine Game. He’s a medical student, and he said he thought he lost the weight because he was so busy studying for his classes.

At his pro day, Duvernay-Tardif ran the 40 in 4.94 and 5.08 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and a 9-6 broad jump. He ran the three-cone drill in 7.30 seconds and had 33 bench-press reps. Duvernay-Tardif was not at the combine, but those numbers were as good as any offensive linemen there, including Taylor Lewan. I would imagine that a team will take a chance on him around the sixth or seventh round and hope to turn him into an NFL player.

If I'm not mistaken, McGill is the Harvard / Yale of Canadian schools......seriously high accolades in the scholar circles. Kid is the hot name sleeper lately....def better than Sentrel Henderson.

Yep, the kid is very sharp.


Love it to have this kind of kid be a 10 yr starter.
