Cornerback Quinn Evans clocked the fastest unofficial time in the 40-yard dash at around 4.40 seconds. He also set the best mark of the day with a 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump. Defensive tackle Brian Arnfelt showcased his strength with 38 repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press, tying the high at the official NFL Scouting Combine in February. The day was actually easier than anticipated for some former Cats. Linebacker David Nwabuisi and offensive tackle Patrick Ward both said they trained at a much higher level in order to make this day a little bit easier and that they felt comfortable in front of the scouts. - Josh Walfish, Daily Northwestern
Nwabuisi was recruited more as an athlete out of high school with most schools viewing him as a fullback, picking the Wildcats over Arizona State and Air Force.
After redshirting in 2008, he spent his freshman and sophomore seasons mostly as a reserve and on special teams, earning one start. Nwabuisi became a full-time starter at strongside linebacker last season, finishing with 84 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 1.0 sack and two forced fumbles.
