The 10 former Cowboys displayed their talents in hopes of earning an opportunity to play professional football at the highest level. Among the Cowboys who were part of the testing on Tuesday were: Wide receiver Ayir Asante, offensive tackle Frank Crum, linebacker Easton Gibbs, defensive tackle Cole Godbout, cornerback Jakorey Hawkins, cornerback Deron Harrell, tight end Colin O’Brien, quarterback Andrew Peasley, punter Clayton Stewart and tight end Treyton Welch.

The testing, which was open to the public as a big crowd gathered inside Wyoming’s IPF, saw Wyoming's draft-eligible players tested by NFL scouts in a series of drills, including: the 225-bench press, Vertical Jump, the 40-yard dash, Broad jump, 3-cone test, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle and Specific Position Testing.

While NFL representatives don't release official testing data from Pro Day, some of the highlights of the day were improvement on combine numbers from Frank Crum and Easton Gibbs. Also, strong numbers testing from Treyton Welch, as he alongside Ayir Asante and Colin O’Brien caught passes in drills from quarterback Andrew Peasley that showed off the arm strength and pass catching abilities of the group.

Corners Jakorey Hawkins and Deron Harrell tested well alongside defensive tackle Cole Godbout, who worked in drills alongside his offensive counterpart Crum. Punter Clayton Stewart worked out in the IPF for the scouts earlier in the morning.

The 26 teams on campus marks the third time since 2019 that 23 or more teams have visited Laramie on Pro Day showing the consistent and growing interest in players being produced by Cowboy Football over the past several years.

Head Coach Jay Sawvel talked with the Media Following Pro Day

“I thought a lot of the guys really help themselves and really did a nice job. It was good to see so many of our guys working out and great to see so many scouts watch our guy’s showcase their abilities.”

“I think it shows the respect teams have for our program and the Mountain West Conference. We are respected with the level of play we have in the program and the schedule we play each season both non-conference and in-conference. It is easy for teams to come in here and know that our guys play at a high level.”

“This is just one step of the process today. It will be a busy month for our guys.”

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
