Emanuel & Crockett Shine
Just because their time at North Dakota State is over doesn't mean that former Bison Kyle Emanuel and John Crockett are ready to call it quits on their football careers.
Both Emanuel and Crockett were invited to this past weekend's NFL Combine in Indianapolis, IN. This was the second straight year that the Bison were represented at the Combine, as offensive lineman Billy Turner was invited last year. Turner was drafted in the third round of last year's NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins.
During his showing at the NFL Combine, Emanuel ran a 4.77 second-40-yard dash, did 27 repetitions on the 225-pound bench press, and ran the three-cone drill in 7.10 seconds, according to InForum.
Crockett, meanwhile, ran a 4.62 second-40-yard dash, which was 20th best for running backs. He also did 15 reps on the bench press, according to WDAY.
Both players are hoping to hear their names called during the 2015 NFL Draft, which begins Thursday, April 30th.
