Canadian defensive lineman Nathan Sheperd held his pro day at Fort Hays State in Kansas and two NFL defensive line coaches directed the football drills.
Shepherd attracted 16 NFL teams to his workout.
Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles defensive line coach Chris Wilson and Cincinnati Bengals defensive line Jacob Burney ran Shepherd through the on-field session.
Wilson has 23 years of NCAA coaching experience and in his first NFL season, the Eagles defensive line was ferocious. Burney has coached in the NFL for 22 years.
The Ajax, Ontario moved fluidly in the pro-style drills as the small school prospect rises higher up the draft board. Sheperd has made his case to be in the top round selection in the NFL draft.
