Canadian DL Nathan Shepherd attracts 16 NFL teams to Fort Hays State pro day

Half of the NFL was represented at Canadian defensive lineman Nathan Shepherd’s pro day in Hays, Kansas.

The town has a population of just over 21,000.

16 teams made the trip to Fort Hays State and watched Shepherd perform football drills, including defensive line coaches from the Eagles, Jets and Bengals according to Tony Pauline.

He elected, smartly, to stand on his NFL combine numbers. Shepherd checked in at six-foot-five, 315 pounds, ran a 5.09 40-yard dash, 4.53 shuttle, broad jumped nine feet, three inches and recorded a 31 inch vertical. The Canadian defensive lineman from Ajax, Ontario was the lone Canuck at the NFL Combine this year and he put on an impressive performance.

Shepherd has 11 visits already lined up with NFL teams.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats own his negotiation list rights.

  1. Will most likely get a shot as a undrafted FA or late round pick. Good luck to Shep.

  2. Another player the Ticats will never see. At least Tillman didn’t blow a pick on this guy.

    Tillman knows talent ! That’s why Nathan Shepherd is on our neg list. As usual, he beat 8 other CFL teams to the punch .

    If that doesn’t sum up the problem with Canadian university football I don’t know what will . Kid had to quit sfu as a starting d tackle because school was too much $$$! What a story though. Good for him he will enjoy those nfl pay days ! The way his stock is rising I doubt the ti cats will ever get a hold of Jim but still a good find by Tillman

    The part about him having to quit school in Canada is a crime. Perseverance pays off, best of luck.
