The best Canadian cover prospect on either side of the border performed for pro scouts at Michigan State’s Pro Day on Wednesday, March 16. Arjen Colquhoun worked out for NFL and CFL personnel men in East Lansing, Michigan.
The Windsor, Ontario native and W. F. Herman Secondary School graduate started 11 games for the Spartans in his senior season. He was a vital part of Michigan State’s Big Ten Championship team, recording a career-high 45 tackles, 12 passes defended, 10 pass break-ups, two interceptions and two forced fumbles.
53 talent evaluators with at least one from every NFL team packed the Duffy Daugherty Football Building on MSU’s campus to watch all the pro hopefuls. Colquhoun checked in at six-foot-one, 189 lbs., put up a 37-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, 4.16-second shuttle and ran a 4.55-second 40-yard dash.
Representatives from five CFL teams made the trip to see the Canadian defensive back live: Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg and Saskatchewan.
“He could come in and be a starter at corner in our league,” one CFL scout says.
