Just as we predicted in our preview
yesterday, Gaither looked solid during the athletic drills but was ineffective
on the bench press.
The 6-foot-8-inch Gaither weighed in just over
320 pounds and ran his 40 in times which ranged between 5.00 to 5.12 seconds,
depending on whose stopwatch was read. His vertical jump was an impressive
31 inches, as was his 9-foot-3-inch broad jump.
Sources we spoke with said Gaither looked good
during position drills, displaying solid footwork and good flexibility. The
heat and a lack of conditioning did loom large as Gaither wore down as the
morning went on.
Gaither completed just 16 reps on the bench
press, a poor number that was expected.
