Heel Tough Blog: Three Players Boost Stock on Pro Day

Updated: Apr 1

The Tar Heels hosted their Pro Day on Thursday in the Bill Koman Practice Complex as nineteen former Tar Heels showcased themselves for NFL representatives. While Drake Maye was the focus for many of those in attendance, there were some others who really shined that helped themselves with what they did. Here’s a look at the three that helped themselves the most.

The former Tar Heel receiver was simply outstanding in everything that he did on Thursday. He caught the ball the best of any of the receivers in attendance, highlighted by his tremendous high-point catch during Maye’s redzone portion of his script. He had another moment during Maye’s throwing session that created an audible response from those in attendance when he hauled in one along the left sideline and dragged his feet in bounds. He also ran very well with an unofficial 4.53 according to Inside Carolina, a very good number for him at 6’4, 215 lbs.. Injuries derailed Corrales' once promising college career, but this showing may be enough to get him a spot in an NFL training camp.

Gainer needed to prove his versatility on Thursday and he did just that. His unofficial 4.53 40-time that Inside Carolina reported is a really good number for him and shows that he still has the athleticism to play off-ball linebacker, which is a huge part of his appeal for NFL teams. His showing here probably sealed the fact that he will be in an NFL camp this summer.

Biggers was a guy who never publicly declared his pursuit of a professional career, but took huge strides towards making an NFL camp roster on Thursday. His 4.41 unofficial 40-yard dash was a phenomenal time for him, as was his 36.5 inch vertical, both numbers reported by Inside Carolina's Evan Rogers. This showing might have been enough to get him a camp invite.
