Michael Campanaro: NFL Combine Performance

Michael Campanaro represented Wake Forest University at the 2014 NFL Combine. How did the star receiver perform?

Michael Campanaro, who finished his career as Wake Forest's leader in career receptions with 229, competed in the NFL Combine this weekend and performed very well.

The former Demon Deacon measured in  at 5'9" 192 pounds and bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times, which was fourth among receivers and just one rep short of Jadeveon Clowney's 21. This is despite the fact that he had shoulder surgery just a few short months ago. Camp ran an impressive 40-yard dash time of 4.46 seconds, which was 14th among receivers and just .03 seconds behind Clemson speedster Sammy Watkins.  His vertical jump of 39.0 inches was tied for sixth among receivers and was 0.5 inches short of  being tied for third.  He also completed the 3-cone drill in 6.7 seconds.

Overall, Michael Campanaro did nothing but help his draft stock at the combine. When you combine the combine results with his elite production as a receiver in addition to his return skills, there is no doubt that there is a place for Campanaro in the NFL. The emergence of the spread offense in the pro game will also help his stock as more teams are consistently running formations with 3 or more receivers.

Blogger So Dear will be following Camp's journey to the draft and will provide updates when we learn information on what teams are interested in Campanaro. Go Deacs!
