04/17/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: MICHIGAN: S Jordan Kovacs (5-11, 205, 4.62)...A former walk-on, Kovacs doesn't have the speed or athleticism to hold up at safety in the NFL, but his intelligence and experience will make him a tough player to cut in camp. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: Kovacs says he's spoken to nearly every NFL team and while his intellect and experience are his strengths, the biggest concern is whether the all-Big Ten safety is athletic enough to translate his game to the next level. He obviously isn't the most athletic safety in the draft, but he proved at the pro day he is at least average. The three-cone drill stands out -- he beat every safety at the combine -- while his 40-yard dash and 20-yard shuttle were around the middle of the pack. Is that enough to prove he can make it at the next level? "I don't know how much stock is actually put into this stuff," Kovacs said. "If I was a coach, I wouldn't put too much stock into it, to be honest with ya. If you're a football player, you're a football player. - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: Jordan Kovacs, once considered too slow to play safety and still considered by some to be too unathletic to play in the NFL, bet one of the most electric players in Michigan history that he could win in two out of three speed drills. The deal went like this: Kovacs and Denard Robinson would compete in the 40-yard dash, three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle, and whoever won at least two of the events had to buy the other a steak dinner at the Chop House. Robinson did his drills at the combine last month, and Kovacs did his Thursday at the Wolverines' pro day.
And, as it turns out, the former walk-on has beaten Robinson after edging him in the cone drill and shuttle run during a strong showing at the pro day. “Oh man, stop. Stop bringing it up,” said a laughing Robinson, who competed only in the 60-yard shuttle and positional drills at the pro day. “He did great today and take my hat off to him. I knew he’d do great." - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live
