Mizzou’s Pro Day came and went with the typical fanfare (well, the typical “Mizzou doesn’t have a top-round pick this year” fanfare, anyway).
While Marcell Frazier was fine, and former safety Anthony Sherrils was as fast as we would have expected, J’Mon Moore’s speed was probably the biggest headliner of the day.
Moore was the only Mizzou player invited to this year’s Senior Bowl and the NFL scouting combine. At the combine in Indianapolis Moore was clocked at 4.6 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which ranked 32nd among the 38 receivers timed at the combine. Even for a bigger receiver — Moore measured 6-3 and weighed 205 pounds Thursday — that’s on the slow side for an NFL wideout. Moore was faster Thursday, timed at 4.48 seconds.
Moore said he received text messages “for days” after flubbing the 40 in Indianapolis.
“People were like, ‘Bro, what were you doing?’” Moore said, laughing.
“Really, I just lined up at the wrong line at the 40. The combine is something different, let me tell you,” he said of his slow time at the combine.
I ... guess that would do it. Regardless, he was evidently the star of the show.
Yesterday at Rock M
- Cuonzo Martin just sent out a new 2018 offer to a reclassified 2019 top-100 guy, Blake Hinson. He’s a 6’7, 230-pound, power forward-slash-shooting guard.
Sunrise Christian Academy product who recently reclassified into 2018. #Mizzou landed Javon Pickett -- who had a brief stint at SCA -- and is currently pursuing combo forward Malik Hall in the 2019 class. https://t.co/FUO6CNT8nx— Matthew Harris (@MattJHarris85) March 22, 2018

- Mizzou is holding steady at 21st in the Learfield Cup.
- It’s SEC Championships time for Mizzou Gymnastics. Hopefully it goes better than the last SEC Tournament a Mizzou team participated in.
- Mizzou Baseball welcomes Mississippi State to town this weekend. The Bulldogs are 12-10 and coming off of getting swept at home by Vanderbilt. Mizzou’s getting on base a lot.
