Van Bergen, Watson run well well at Michigan Pro Day

By Rob Rang | The Sports Xchange/CBSSports.com

Despite leading Michigan in both tackles for loss (12.5) and sacks last
year (5.5), Ryan Van Bergen didn't receive an invitation to the NFL Combine
last month. He bounced between defensive end and defensive tackle over his
career as the Wolverines changed schemes and coaches. But regardless of where
he lined up on the field, Van Bergen was always moving at full-go and that
intensity was on display Thursday during Michigan's Pro Day in Ann Arbor.

Van Bergen, who weighed in a 291 pounds, ran a 4.90 40-yard dash and
put up 31 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He suffered a right foot
injury in the Sugar Bowl in January and has been feverishly rehabbing to work out
for NFL teams.

Reserve tight end Steve Watson, who bounced between offense and defense
over his career, turned heads with a blazing 4.60 40-yard dash at 6-3 and 255
pounds. He also posted 26 reps off 225 pounds on the bench. Watson's father,
who was a Pro Bowl receiver for the Denver Broncos, went undrafted in 1979, but
went on to have a productive nine-year career in the NFL.

Cornerback Troy Woolfolk had a very up and down collegiate career, but
he looked good in front of scouts on Thursday, running a 4.56 40-yard dash. He
also looked fluid in other drills, including the 3-cone drill (6.77), short
shuttle (4.19), vertical (31.5”) and broad jump (9'), adding 20 reps on the
bench press.

Defensive tackle Mike Martin, center David Molk and receiver Junior
Hemingway decided to rest on their numbers from the NFL Combine. Tight end
Kevin Koger, who was snubbed from last month's Combine, had 21 reps on the
bench, but was unable to work out due to a hamstring injury.
