Bill Belichick Works Out Combine Star, Film Director Chris Conley


Mar 4, 2015

Bill Belichick’s southern scouting road trip continued Wednesday as he worked out NFL draft prospects at the University of Georgia.

After the New England Patriots head coach spent Tuesday at Auburn, Belichick put wide receiver Chris Conley, center David Andrews and the rest of the Georgia prospects through the ringer.

Running back Todd Gurley is Georgia’s top prospect. He’s projected to be a first- or second-round pick despite tearing his ACL in November. Conley is projected as a fifth-round pick by NFL Draft Scout, but his combine performance could spike his draft stock. He ran a 4.35-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-2, 213 pounds with a 45-inch vertical leap and 11-foot, 7-inch broad jump.

He caught 36 passes for 657 yards with eight touchdowns in Georgia’s run-heavy offense. He’s perhaps most well known for directing and starring in 26-minute “Star Wars” fan film “Retribution”, which undoubtedly is better than the film franchise’s prequels.

NFL Draft Scout also gives draftable grades to Andrews (seventh round), linebacker Ramik Wilson (fourth to fifth round), defensive end Ray Drew (fifth round), cornerback Damian Swann (sixth to seventh round), quarterback Hutson Mason (seventh round) and lineabacker Amarlo Herrera (seventh round).
