SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley did not receive an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine but after holding his own pro day, he proved that not getting an invite was a mistake.
Utah was scheduled to hold their pro day last week but due to the coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic, the event has been postponed and will likely be canceled.
Huntley decided to hold his own pro day with NFL personnel on site to observe and record his results.
Here are all of the results for Huntley and how they compared to the participants at the NFL Combine.

Huntley ran a blistering 4.56 40-yard dash at his pro day which is very impressive for a quarterback.
That 40-yard dash time would have been the best at the Combine with Hawaii quarterback Cole McDonald’s 4.58 time being the best at the Combine.
Huntley finished the 20-yard shuttle in 4.31 seconds.
The 20-yard shuttle time for Huntley was faster than anyone at his position at the Combine with Princeton QB Kevin Davidson who posted a 4.37 result.
At the Combine, that result for Huntley would have been the fifth fastest time.
In the 3-cone drill, Huntley finished in 6.84 seconds.
His 3-cone drill time was faster than any quarterback in Indianapolis. The best result at the Combine was from Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert with 7.06.
That time would have been the best at the Combine with Oregon State wide receiver Isaiah Hodgins, Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson and Wisconsin running back Jonathan Taylor recording 7.01 times.
In the broad jump, Huntley leaped 128.5 inches.
That broad jump result would have also been the tops at the Combine with Missouri’s Kelly Bryant recording the best broad jump among the quarterbacks with 125 inches.
Among all of competitors at the Combine, Huntley had the better result. Colorado linebacker Davion Taylor, Florida International defensive back Stantley Thomas-Oliver and Florida defensive lineman Jabari Zuniga all recorded the best broad jump at the Combine with 127 inches.
In the vertical jump, Huntley recorded a staggering 43.5-inch jump.
The vertical jump result for Huntley would’ve shattered any quarterback’s numbers at the Combine. McDonald led the QB’s with a 36-inch vertical jump.
Among all of the participants at the Combine, Huntley would’ve posted the best vertical jump. The best result at the Combine was from South Carolina running back Rico Dowdle with 38 inches. Oklahoma linebacker Kenneth Murray, Virginia wide receiver Joe Reed and Clemson safety K’Von Wallace all had the same result.
