- 2013 Wisconsin Pro Day: Although they didn't participate in the 40-yard dash, offensive linemen Travis Frederick and Ricky Wagner displayed their speed in footwork drills, displaying their pull techniques and initial first-steps off the line. The scout who led the individual drills was affiliated with the Miami Dolphins. Both lineman ran the 40 at the NFL Combine, with Frederick recording a 5.58 and Wagner with a 5.17. Wagner also recorded the third-best vertical jump of any offensive lineman at the combine with a leap of 31.5 inches.
With the focus more on the 10-yard split of the 40 for offensive lineman, both were satisfied enough with their combine results to feel no urgency to run again. "I'm never running another 40 in my life," Wagner said. "I don't run more than 10 yards." "It's not often you see an offensive lineman running 40 yards down the field," Frederick said. "Unless hopefully your running back has scored, in which case you can trot it down the field." - Nick Korger, The Badger Herald
