University of Rhode Island Safety Tim Wienclaw's Draft Stock Has Begun a Steady Rise Since His Pro Day at TEST Sports in New Jersey, per Inspired Athletes
New York City, NY, April 25, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Playing at the University of Rhode Island doesn’t afford its players the publicity and attention that the Big 5 Power Conferences does, therefore strong pro day numbers and a good agent are important aspects of the draft process. After starting all 45 games of his career with 306 tackles, 17.5 TFL's, school record 8 forced fumbles, and 7 fumble recoveries Wienclaw needed an opportunity to showcase his skillset. When TEST Sports in NJ invited Tim to their pro day (attended by the Raiders, Colts, 49ers, Jets, and Giants) it was just the opportunity he was looking for. The 6'2' 212lbs Safety took full advantage of the opportunity posting a 38.5 inch vertical, a 10'3" broad jump, and 4.69 & 4.71 40 times.
Tim's productivity speaks for itself. He's shown great durability playing 45 straight games and is a ferocious hitter which is evident by his 8 forced fumbles. He's really an underrated athlete. Jumping 38.5 at 212lbs is significant. As a freshman he also served as the teams punter and averaged 39 yards a punt on 66 attempts...he knows how to play the game, sometimes people get caught up on where you played and who you played against when it's really about staying on the field, getting people on the ground, and making plays" says Dan Smith who is Tim's agent at Inspired Athletes. "Tim does all of those at a high level".
"Tim is a straight playmaker, watch his film and see his skills, he is a dynamic Strong Safety"
Dan Smith, Inspired Athletes, Managing Director
