Players Work Out At UF In Rainy Conditions

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A dozen University of Florida football players and several from area colleges participated during the Gators’ pro day under rainy, cool conditions in front of representatives from all 32 NFL teams.

Players went through weight drills and then ran the 40-yard dash on the indoor track of the O’Connell Center. Several players slipped at the starting line and some ran barefoot for better traction.

Activities were then moved to the Gators practice field despite a light but steady rain. Group drills were conducted for wide receivers, offensive linemen, defensive linemen and defensive backs.

Among the Florida players in attendance were defensive backs Loucheiz Purifoy and Marcus Roberson, and defensive linemen Ronald Powell and Dominique Easley.

Jeff Zimmer of the Minnesota Vikings was the only known head coach in attendance.
