Draft Scout Aston Whiteside News

08/11/12 - DE Aston Whiteside was signed by the Bears Saturday.
08/06/12 - LB Aston Whitesdie was waived by the Cowboys.
04/03/12 - The final two members of the ACU Wildcats' "Vernon Connection" went through NFL Pro Day on Tuesday at the Wally Bullington Practice Facility, and both Aston Whiteside and Darryl Richardson believe they helped their stock in the eyes of NFL scouts in advance of this month's NFL Draft. Whiteside and Richardson – both represented by Scott Casterline, who also represents Bernard Scott and Clyde Gates – are both projected to be late-round selections in the draft, which is scheduled for April 26-28 in New York City. Other prominent Wildcats who worked out for scouts from the 15 NFL teams in attendance were tight end Ben Gibbs, fullback Justin Andrews, offensive tackle Neal Tivis, defensive tackle Donald Moore and linebacker Derek Drummond. Other Lone Star Conference players who worked out were former West Texas A&M standouts Brittan Golden (receiver) and Simi Kuli (defensive end), Texas A&M-Commerce linebacker Cory Whitfield and Tarleton State quarterback Nick Stephens. Whiteside – who finished his career No. 2 on ACU's all-time sacks list – went through drills at five different positions on Tuesday: defensive end, defensive tackle, outside linebacker, fullback and tight end. Whiteside said at least 12 teams have shown interest with perhaps the Steelers , Bears and Cowboys showing the most interest. "I feel like I did pretty well out here (today)," Whiteside said at the conclusion of the three-hour workout. I did every drill except the offensive line drill, and I think that showed the kind of versatility I can bring to a team." Whiteside ran the 40-yard dash in 4.74 seconds, had a 33.5-inch vertical leap, and did 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He also showed good quickness and first-step explosion on the three-cone and shuttle drills. - KTXS TV 12 News
