Brad Lester speaks

Hey everyone. As part of our continuing coverage of Auburn's Pro Day festivities, let's take a gander at tailback Brad Lester.

(He's a man so fast my camera can't catch him.)

Height: 5-9
Weight: 190
40 time: 4.48 sec
Vertical: 38.5 inches
Broad jump: 10-foot-4
Bench press: 18 reps of 225 pounds

I thought he looked pretty good at the event. He's clearly in shape and focused on marketing himself. That's a change, at least in my mind, because I didn't think he played very hard last season. Injuries were an issue. Still, Lester's poor senior season went beyond physical problems.

He seemed listless to me during the season's second half. I didn't get that sense Thursday.

Here's what he had to say:

On a surprising weight-lifting performance: ``Actually, when I was working out all offseason on it, I was getting like 22, 23. I guess since we did it at the end of workouts today it was hard to get as many, but it was still a good amount."

On people watching him so closely at the event: ``For a lot of guys it’s tough but I came in with the mindset that once I start my drills, block everybody out and just focus on myself and just do the best that I can."

On being anxious: ``I was really nervous. I actually threw up like two or three times before I got here. I was pretty nervous but once I got started and ran my 40, I was alright."

On not being an anxious person by nature: ``It actually surprised me. I couldn’t sleep most of last night and then woke up throwing up this morning. I was surprised myself, but I still came out and performed well and that’s all that mattered."

On how important Pro Day was for him: ``That’s why it was so important and I guess it’s why I was so nervous because I knew how much today could help me potentially get drafted."

On his performance: ``Yeah, I feel like I did pretty well and set myself with a chance to get drafted by somebody."

On his 40 time: ``I felt very comfortable. I used the techniques that I was taught all offseason and I thought today was very productive overall."

On if he'll be drafted: ``I’m pretty confident I will. If I don’t, it’s just going to motivate me to work harder as a free agent and try to get on somebody’s team in mini-camp. But I’m hoping to be drafted."

On where he's working out: ``I was in Atlanta, but I moved up to New Jersey with Joe DeFranco. It’s me, (USC linebacker) Brian Cushing and Tony Fiametta, the fullback from Syracuse. We’re all working together."

Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Lester has shown flashes of ability(other than his senior season) during his time at Auburn, but no way do I see a team drafting him. If a player doesn't play hard during his final season with a potential pro contract on the line, what reasonable GM would invest money in him? Good luck to BL, but I don't see it happening.

4:31 PM

Is there a business opportunity for workout/fitness/sports agents to pay workout expenses for late round/FA candidates in return for a % of future contracts?

Sounds like quite a gamble.

4:33 PM  
Blogger tigerfan44 said...

If Lester gets drafted he might be the only back to never rush for a 100 yards in a game and be drafted. It still surprises me when I think he never had a 100 yard rushing game. That might be some good trivia for you trivia buffs.

If Lester has an agent, it is quite likely the agent is paying all his working out expenses.

No, I'm not stupid or that idealistic. I do know some players sign with agents/agencies and receive modest compensation until drafted. However, the only examples of those I know of are bonafide first rounders (Brady Quinn was one who came to mind). I was simply inquiring as to whether or not some of the lesser known (and lower round) prospects were able to secure similar deals.

That is too bad about your sister's wallet. Chasing down credit cards and bank accounts are never fun, especially when you are worried about someone.

Sensi - I know Jimmy Sexton's clients, even the ones who are borderline free agents, get paid to go to these workout places prior to the combine/pro days. If you are an agent and you are willing to take a guy on, it is a good investment to make sure they are trained up, first rounder or not.

Thanks Jet. All of the HH personnel, with the exception of the anesthesiologist who basically told my mom she was probably going to be on a ventilator or die, have been wonderful.

UCONN shouldn't lose their #1 seed if they lose this or the game tomorrow. This league really really deserves 3 of the 4. If Memphis with their giant cluster f of a conference usa schedule steals one it will be a joke!

This is unbelievable. I actually played in a 4 overtime game in HS, but I have never seen or heard of a 6 overtimer.

6 OTs is nothing. When they reach 9, then start talking.

I won't be talking. I'll be snoozing!

I have to be in bed, this is beyond ridiculous.

Cuse has to win this game, with them never leading at any point during OT. They are good when it counts, Uconn hasn't been.

First lead for syracuse, its over

I'm just trying to soak it in to make up for the mundane atmosphere/play that I watched in Tampa tonight.

12:10 AM  
Blogger BinOBA said...

yeah the sec tourney in tampa is silly, the atmosphere will be less than electric for all the games.

UCLA and wazzu have almost played a whole game during these overtimes.

Man, billy packer is so annoying, i'd just as soon listen to foghorn leghorn call a basketball game given the chance between the two.

He's somewhere around Eli Gold status to me. Bilas is good at least.

It's over. I'm logging off fellas. War Eagle! I hope we wipe the floor with UF later on today.

I like eli gold for one reason only, one nigth bama was playing a late game and stabler told eli that his (eli's) eyes were red, so red they matched his crimson jacket, eli said " i wouldn't wanna take your look from you kenny", since then, i've had more of an appreciation for him, but he's still a mouth breathin bama homer, the other shoe drops soon for them anyhow.

Great game, time for some sleep. Hope the hottie nation is sound asleep.

Six OTs? Six OTs!

I made myself go to bed after the first one since I had to get up to go to the gym.

Man alive.

I was asleep on the sofa at 8:30! I didn't miss much, though, by not seeing the FL/AR game.

I need to get a good nap in this afternoon so I can stay awake for Auburn/FL!

Hotties, what are your thoughts on this matchup?

6:52 AM  
Blogger Jet Hates Bama said...

Value the ball + 65% FT percent + defend the 3 = victory

6:58 AM

When was the last time the Auburn men's FT % was 65%?

Slow day, is everyone that busy or is there just nothing to talk about?

Everyone excited about taking down the Gators tonight?

If we do that, we end their NCAA bid. Not to mention that we tend to own them recently in football- -I'd say overall, AU has UF's number. I feel confident about tonight.

Any takers?

Lester is training with Brian Cushing? He's the Lattimer of USC. Steroid rumors everywhere around him

Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

dunno Hornet. that's a tough one. i guess both sides feel a little betrayal on this one. a lifelong bama fan turns his back on the tide and chooses auburn baseball but still cheers for their football team. it vexes me. i am utterly vexed.

Blogger Andrew said...

Hey everybody! Hope you all have a fine Friday! It was fun sitting up last night and watching the big east tourney and talking to a few hotties that know their roundball!

I like this game for Auburn tonight! That place really lacks energy and we're more than used to playing in that type of environment. We just need to keep Calathes from getting off and knock down those free throws (like someone said already).

War Damn Eagle!

Btw, I say to bloody hell with him if he cheers for bammie's football team.
