A pair of NFL prospects from Western New York participated in Cornell's pro day Friday, and their workout was overseen by another local.
Kenmore native and former NFL offensive-line coach Jim McNally put wide receiver Luke Tasker (St. Francis) and guard J.C. Tretter (Akron) through various events Friday at Cornell University.
Tretter was the focal point. He's projected as a mid-round draft choice and was invited to last month's NFL scouting combine, as Buffalo News reporter Jay Skurski wrote then.
This was Tasker's big chance to impress scouts. Tasker, the son of Buffalo Bills legend Steve Tasker, was not invited to the combine. NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt wrote Luke Tasker ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 and 4.63 seconds and registered a 33.5-inch vertical jump.
Tasker is 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds. He had 75 catches for 1,207 yards and eight touchdowns last season for Cornell.
