The NFL Scouting Combine wrapped up in Indianapolis earlier this week and two former Colorado Buffaloes were among the players participating. Tight end Nick Kasa and tackle David Bakhtiari worked out for NFL scouts as they attempted to boost their draft standing.

Kasa measured well at 6'6 and ran a very solid 4.71-second 40-yard dash. His 40 time was the seventh-fastest time among tight ends. Kasa showed impressive strength to go along with his speed as he was able to complete 22 reps on the bench press, the third most among tight ends. Kasa didn't perform as well in the jumping drills as his 31.5-inch vertical jump was just an inch above the lowest for tight ends and his broad jump was also among the lower totals.
Although Bakhtiari didn't finish among the leaders in any of the six drills he participated in, he did finish average or slightly above average in every drill. He finished with a 40-yard dash time of 5.09 seconds while completing 28 reps on the bench press. The vertical jump proved to be the drill where Bakhtiari performed the worst as he topped out at 25.5 inches.
Kasa, Bakhtiari and the rest of the draft-eligible Buffaloes will get another shot to work out for NFL scouts at Colorado's pro day on March 13.
