Rodriguez Participates In Yankees First Full-squad Workout - Headlines Ap

src="" width='200px' alt='Rodriguez participates in Yankees first full-squad workout' />

(AP) A sixth-grader making his first visit to spring training stood along a fence outside George M. Steinbrenner Field waiting to get a glimpse of his favorite player. Shane Negast, an 11-year-old from West Nyack, New York, traveled to Florida with his father, John, who is using Alex Rodriguez's season-long suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs as a teachable moment. The son wore a No. 13 A-Rod jersey, partially obscured by a red and white backpack adorned by a pair of buttons recognizing a pair of Yankees World Series titles from the 1990s. He's also a big Derek Jeter fan, and the Yankees are his team. The mere mention of A-Rod's name brought a big smile to the youngster's online face.

Beasley, Williams Impress On 3rd Day Of Combine Workouts - Yahoo Sports

[link] was almost as good. On the third day of workouts at the annual NFL scouting combine, Beasley pulled off an impressive double - posting the fastest 40-yard dash time of the day at 4.53 seconds and sharing the title of most bench press reps at 225 pounds with 35. Beasley did that despite weighing in at 246 pounds. The 302-pound Williams, who played defensive tackle in college, did nearly as well. Though he did not lift Sunday, Williams was clocked at 4.97 seconds in the 40 - the same time posted by Jameis Winston on Saturday and matching the fastest time turned in by an offensive lineman on Friday.

(Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports) View/Post Comments The defense took its turn on Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine, and there was a lot to like, especially from the interior linemen and edge players. As a whole, they ran fast, jumped high and far and proved to be incredible athletes for men their size. There were 300-pounders running the 40-yard dash in under 5.0 seconds. That's not really supposed to happen. There were 260-plus-pounders running the 40 in the 4.5 range with 40-plus-inch vertical leaps.

The biggest question for him on tape is whether he has the strength to set the edge against the run. He still isn't a sure thing in this regard, but his measuring in at 6-foot-3, 246 pounds (up from 220 pounds in the spring) and bench-pressing 25 reps were positive signs. Moreover, he proved that he has that one elite skill you need to overcome size and strength issues as an NFL pass-rusher, with his exceptional straight-line speed (4.53 40-yard dash and 1.59 10-yard split, the latter of which is the stuff of elite edge rushers and a predictive measure for NFL success) that matches the quickness we see from him on tape. I think his performance solidifies him as a first-round pick, somewhere in the top 25.

Hes scheduled to workout with the linebackers so is Bud Dupree. Shane Ray and Eddie Goldman have chosen not to workout due to injury. Someone needs to let Mike Mayock and Daniel Jeremiah know. The defensive linemen are dressed in bright green and look like comedy superhero villains.

Florida State Seminoles' Rashad Greene Diary: Preparation For Nfl Combine Underway | Fox Sports

Not to say I can't take a lick, but they want to be able to see that I've got the proper weight and muscle on me so I can get right back up. Jimbo Fisher, Florida State welcome another highly rated recruiting class They want to see me bigger than what I am but at the same time maintain my speed. I don't think a lot people think I'm that fast, but I'm very confident that I can run really well -- my speed's very deceptive, it doesn't look like I'm moving fast but I'm covering ground. They want to see me run a good 40 to prove I've got the speed, but I think that shows on my film.

Or maybe the Oakland Raiders , a team Williams said he wouldnt mind playing for in December, at front page No. 4. Whoever lands the 6-foot-5, 304-pound behemoth of a man will also be getting a quiet fortitude that acts as his carburetor, mixing the drive to play in the NFL that hes had since well before he stepped on campus and his big-stick, speak-softly dominance as a player. I guess Im quiet, Williams told Shutdown Corner recently, offering a sheepish smile that belies his physical presence. I can talk, but I am not a big talker." The East Coast kid has become West-Coast chill.

A-Rod turns 40 in July and has not played a full season since 2007 because of leg injuries, operations on both hips and the suspension. He was banned for 211 games in August 2013 by then-baseball Commissioner Bud Selig, and the penalty was cut to the 2014 season by an arbitrator. After suing in federal court in an attempt to overturn the discipline, Rodriguez dropped that action and accepted the penalty. New York plans on shifting the three-time AL MVP from third base to designated hitter. Rodriguez is fifth on the career list with 654 homers.
