- 2013 Auburn Pro Day: Emory was one of 14 former Auburn players who participated in pro day Tuesday, a group that included defensive end Corey Lemonier, Lutzenkirchen, running back Onterio McCalebb and linebacker Daren Bates. He was the only one whose father was part of the action. In the biggest workout of his life, Emory ran an unofficial 4.62-second, 40-yard dash along with a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot broad jump. His 40-yard time didn't reach expectations. "No, I'm not OK with it," said Blake, who wanted to run a 4.5-second dash. "I'm slightly disappointed because I ran faster before, and I could've done a better job. But, you know, there's nothing I can do about it now. I did my best today, and I still felt like I had a solid day." Yet, moments after playing catch with his dad, Emory couldn't help but smile. It had always been the plan, since the days Emory was a child catching fades in his Jeff's oversized Cincinnati Bengals jersey. Jeff said he didn't have to prepare much for his part. His natural ability to sling the football never left, something he proved while tossing bullets Tuesday. They talked about it through the years, looking ahead to the day Emory would get his shot to play in the league his dad called home. "It's something that I always planned," Emory said. "Sometimes you don't know how the old man's going to hold up, but he's held up nice. So it was an easy decision for me. He's always thrown the ball well, and still throws the ball well. - Ryan Wood, Opelika-Auburn News
