LINCOLN — Former Nebraska offensive lineman Jerald Foster felt good about the three-cone drill. He was good with how most of the Pro-Day drills turned out, actually.
Just not the 225-pound bench press. Not when linebacker Luke Gifford — his teammate at Nebraska and Lincoln Southeast — did him one better.
“I got 22, Gifford got 23,” the two-time NU captain said. “Pissed me off a little bit. … That one hurt my heart a little bit.”
Foster, who started all 12 game at left guard last year, said he felt his entire class of outgoing seniors performed well for NFL scouts. He said he has already been classified as a high-priority free agent by pro teams.
“I’m guessing that hasn’t changed from a couple drills,” Foster said. “But it was a good day.”
