His football future hanging in the balance. Scouts from 21 different NFL teams on hand. Medford's Ethan Hemer relaxed at Wisconsin's Pro Day on Wednesday.
The former Badger defensive lineman is projected to be drafted in the later rounds of the May Draft, to not at all. He bench pressed 225 pounds 32 times, which would have tied for 2nd best at the NFL scouting combine among D-linemen had he been invited. He clocked in at 4.95 in the 40. In the vertical he got as high as 29.5 inches. And in the broad jump, 109 inches.
Intrigued by a select few, Ethan was even asked to do what he hadn't done in 5 years.
What he does know is it takes only one team to be impressed and take a chance on a kid from Medford, who 5 years ago when signing with the Badgers, never thought he'd be working out for NFL scouts.
