Hot Prospects from CajunProspects Combine

Hot Prospects from CajunProspects Combine

The hot spring afternoon brought out hot prospects to
Independence Stadium in Shreveport, La. for the CajunProspects Combine.  Over 50
prospects from across northern Louisiana came out for the event that saw
prospects from the 2012 - 2014 classes participate in drills ranging from the

Here are some of the standouts from the event:





Garrett Chandler

Chandler will look to make the move from guard to
center this season.  He showcased his good agility skills with
a 4.84 in the shuttle.  He is also in the process of learning
how to deep snap, having attended a center camp at Ohio State.


Richard Jefferson

Jefferson recorded the third fastest 40-yard time
with a 4.57.  His solid coverage skills were also on display at

Steele Merritt

Merritt showed that he can be a legit D1 prospect

His 42 foot power ball toss was second best at the combine, while he
recorded a 4.6 40 time and 2.52 20 yard time.




Chris Lewis

recorded a 4.4 electronic time in the 40-yard dash and excelled in

display of his route running and catching abilities in one-on-one
