Alden Darby Takes Step Closer to Pros at ASU Pro Day
MARCH 12, 2014, PHOENIX, AZ - Arizona State University safety Alden Darby gave it his all as he took to Sun Devil stadium on Friday, March 7, for the university's pro day.
Scouts from 27 teams were in attendance along with one head coach from the Indianapolis Colts.
The 5' 11', 195 lbs. 'Juice Man,' as he is known, ran a 4.46 40-yard; a 4.22 shuttle; a 6.89 3-cone; completed a 10' 1' broad jump; and a 34.5' vertical jump. Scores from the Long Beach, Calif. native rival those of the top safety picks from the NFL Scouting Combine late last month.
'This is the first step in making my dreams come true,' said Darby of his big day. 'I feel like I turned a lot of heads out there and opened a lot of eyes. It was a great experience to be back at Sun Devils stadium one last time to show what I've got. In all I see this as the beginning of turning my dreams into reality.'
Agent Derek Spearman also shared his excitement for his client's results.
'Alden did really well; he exceled on his drills, and produced some great times,' said Spearman. 'Another great thing was that we were able to confirm two private workouts with teams.'
Post-pro day, Darby has also received multiple positive draft grades.
