Quinn Meinerz made a name for himself with a strong showing during January’s Senior Bowl practices. The bruising guard from Wisconsin-Whitewater more than held his own against the major conference players despite hailing from the D-III wilderness.

The likely Day 2 prospect held his pro day on Tuesday, and the Detroit Lions were in attendance — as was most of the league. The Lions sent collegiate scouting director Ron Miles to Whitewater to personally oversee the workout. In all, 29 teams attended the pro day, an astonishing number for a D-III program.

The testing numbers help explain the allure. At 320 pounds, Meinerz ran very well and posted impressive numbers in the explosive metrics like vertical and broad jumps. It reinforced his impressive turn in Mobile, where he also looked comfortable playing center as well as guard.

The Lions aren’t necessarily in the market for an offensive lineman early in the draft, but Meinerz sure fit the bill of the kind of kneecap-biting player head coach Dan Campbell desires.
