Branden Oliver Shines at U of Buffalo Pro Day
MARCH 7, 2014, BUFFALO, NY - University of Buffalo running back Branden Oliver wowed NFL scouts the university's Pro Day on Tuesday, March 4 at the Buffalo Bills' Ralph Wlson Stadium.
The Miami-native, simply known as 'Bo', completed 26 bench press reps and 4.53 seconds in the 40-yard dash. Oliver also posted a 4.1 shuttle run and a 9' 9' broad jump.
At 5' 8' and 208 lbs., this puts Oliver right in line with scores seen by top running back pick Bishop Sankey of University of Washington at last week's NFL combine.
These Pro Day stats follow Oliver's all-star senior season, which included 310 carries for 1,535 yards and 15 touchdowns.
'I'm just thankful for the opportunity that God gave me. I may not have been able to attend the Combine, but [Pro Day] was kind of like its own Combine for us,' said Branden about this successful day. 'You just have put everything out on the line, and leave the field with no regrets. The rest is in God's hands.'
Agent Derek Spearman also sung his praises about his client's powerhouse performance.
'Branden performed great, probably the best of all the running backs of his size that are out there,' said Spearman. 'He's the full package: a lot of power, and a lot of speed. His performance helped his draft status immensely.'
Following his Pro Day, Oliver has received multiple positive draft status reviews and inquiries about post-Pro Day workouts and interviews.
