Draft Scout Onterio McCalebb News
05/01/13 - The Bengals added to their list of college free agents Wednesday morning when they added Auburn running back Onterio McCalebb, New Mexico Highlands linebacker Jordan Campbell, and Oklahoma State kicker Quinn Sharp.
The 5-10, 170-pound McCalebb, the fastest man at the NFL Scouting Combine with a sub 4-3-second 40-yard dash, is making the switch to cornerback for the May 10-12 rookie minicamp at Paul Brown Stadium as the Bengals try to find a position for him while auditioning his return skills. Too slight to play NFL running back, McCalebb could also get a look at receiver. The CFA class stands at 12. - Geoff Hobson, Bengals.com
03/06/13 - 2013 Auburn Pro Day: Onterio McCalebb...McCalebb might have benefited the most from the extra publicity provided by Pro Day. He continued to run blistering - if unofficial - 40 yard dashes with his fastest being unofficially clocked at 4.29 seconds. Scouts who buy into game film more than drills can see his productivity if plugged into the right system. For those looking for workout warriors, McCalebb did not disappoint. While the main knock on McCalebb is his seemingly frail 168-pound frame, he completed 10 reps in the bench press - seven more than 313-pound guard John Sullen - showing that he has the upper body strength to take a hit. McCalebb’s only falter came in receiving drills. Teams willing to buy into his speed must know if he can also catch the ball out of the backfield, and McCalebb dropped two passes early. However, once in a rhythm, McCalebb looked fluid coming out of routes. - Andrew Yawn, The Auburn Plainsman
03/06/13 - 2013 Auburn Pro Day: Former Auburn football stars were trying to impress NFL scouts at pro day Tuesday morning. After a few Tigers impressed coaches at the NFL combine, there was plenty of buzz about Onterio McCalebb, Corey Lemonier, and company. Despite a poor 2012 season, some of Auburn's leaders still attracted attention from NFL scouts at pro day Tuesday. Scouts looking for Onterio Mccalebb had to hurry because of his blazing 4.26 40 time. "When I was up there at the combine, all the coaches asked what are your weaknesses and your strengths," McCalebb said. "I told them my strength is running and my weakness is catching the ball and blocking. But, you can always get better at everything you do." - Dayne Young, WRBL TV 3 News
03/06/13 - 2013 Auburn Pro Day: Representatives from 15 NFL teams gathered at Auburn’s pro day on March 5. A total of 10 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. Onterio McCalebb, RB (5-10 1/4, 169) - McCalebb ran the 40 in 4.33 and 4.34 seconds, had a 37-inch vertical and 10-10 broad jump, had a 4.31-second short shuttle and 7.01-second three-cone drill, and did 10 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. The best shot for McCalebb at sticking in the NFL is as a return specialist. His size is an issue as far as durability is concerned at the running back position. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/06/13 - 2013 Auburn Pro Day: Scouts representing 23 NFL teams were on The Plains Tuesday for the Tigers' annual Pro Day, as 14 former Auburn football players participated in a number of drills and tests hoping to earn a spot in the upcoming NFL Draft. Running back/return specialist Onterio McCalebb, who had one of the fastest 40-yard dash times at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, said of Tuesday’s workout. “It’s always a blessing to go out and compete and show everybody what you can do. I feel like I did well. I really feel blessed to have been able to compete at Auburn one more time. This is home to me.” McCalebb had a vertical jump of 37”, a broad jump of 10’1”, and 10 reps on the bench press in addition to his unofficial times in the three-cone drill (6.92), long (11.17) and short (4.23) shuttles and the 40-yard dash (4.29) at Tuesday’s Pro Day. - Auburn football
