NFL Draft Series by PFC Blogger Chris Brown (@cbreezy2411)

As part of the rookie’s blogs here at ProFootballCentral we continue to talk with potential NFL hopefuls. Today we had a chance to catch up with The Citadel Running Back Terrell Dallas.

CB: Thank you for joining us again Terrell, it’s been about a month since we last talked.  When we left off you were preparing for a few pro days, how did everything end up?

TD: Well I ended up attended two pro days, March 22nd and March 27th.   They both went pretty well, the first pro day I was able to get 21 reps on the bench.  I had a broad jump of 9’2”.  I didn’t do my vertical leap at the time because I wanted to save it and do it at my pro day at The Citadel.  I ran had a 40 yard dash time of 4.50 seconds. A couple other times I achieved were 4.19 on pro shuttle, 11.3 60 yd shuttle and 6.96 on the three cone drill.  The following week at Citadel, my hamstring was still sore so I didn’t end up doing my vertical leap.  I was able to improve my reps to 24 on the bench and my 6.96 on the three cone drill to 6.81. I think I did well in all the other position drills such as catching and running routes also felt really smooth and fluent during those drills.  The Jacksonville Jaguars were at the first pro day watching and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were at The Citadel.  The scout made a few comments about my catches during my running back drills.  They thought I had good size and put up good times during the drills.  When I was down in Daytona I kind of felt my hamstring get a little sore.  I knew I could have done better on some of the drills if it wasn’t for the injury.

CB: Since the pro days are over with for now, how have the workouts been going?

TD: I’m going to switch my workouts a little bit.  The past three months I have been working out all the time, twice a day, six times a week.  Since the pro days are over I’m focusing on becoming better.  I’m achieving this by focusing mentally and focusing overall at becoming a better running back. I think I’m going to continue to eat healthy and keep up my energy level.  So I will cover both phases of being mentally strong as well as physically strong.  I just feel like I have a weighted lifted off my shoulders, but I still have to put out good numbers.

CB: What are you plans from here on out? Do you have any goals set for the next few weeks?

TD: I like to set a goal I can reach with hard work.  I’ve reached all my goals for my pro days except for my vertical leap.  I was satisfied with my numbers.  I don’t really have any control over contact from any scouts or teams.  I just have to stay ready for when people call, I don’t want to fall behind at all and I want to be prepared.   It’s a fun process and I’m going to enjoy the ride.  Athletes want as many calls as they can get but I know that’s out of my control.  So I’m going to stay focused and hope that I do draw interest.  I put my trust in God and let him choose my future.
