          Whalen a no-throw at OSU pro day

          Former CWRU quarterback Dan Whalen left OSU's pro day disappointed.

          After finishing the physical testing in the morning, Whalen was not invited to remain for the afternoon throwing drills. The other two quarterbacks at the pro day, Edinboro University's Trevor Harris and Ashland University's Billy Cunduff, were invited to throw.

          The pro day, held in Columbus, attracted scouts from most of the NFL's 32 teams. It was a key day in Whalen's drive to get drafted into the league. Not getting to show his accuracy and arm strength was a big setback for Whalen.

          He felt he did well in the testing. He ran a 4.66 second 40-meter dash and benched 225 pounds 15 times.

          Some NFL teams are still thought to be interested in Whalen. Former Washington Redskins head coach and current Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn sent Whalen an email of encouragement, telling Whalen to keep working hard and honing his skills. Whalen hopes to get into other pro days and perhaps get a personal workout from a few NFL teams.
