Spartan NFL Combine Report: Thursday

INDIANAPOLIS – Three former Michigan State Spartans – quarterback Brian Lewerke and wide receivers Darrell Stewart Jr. and Cody White – tested in front of NFL coaches, scouts and front-office personnel on Thursday for the first day of the on-field portion of the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Lewerke, who measured in at 6-2 and 213 pounds, looked sharp during his throwing drills and was a top performer in several testing categories. His time of 4.40 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle was the second best among QBs, and his time of 7.14 seconds in the three-cone drill was fourth best. He timed out at 4.95 seconds in the 40-yard dash, which came in 11th.

A three-year starter, Lewerke finished his career as the school’s all-time leader in total offense with 9,548 yards, including an MSU single-season record 3,442 yards as a senior in 2019. He is the only Spartan QB in school history to throw for more than 8,000 yards (8,293) and rush for more than 1,000 (1,255).
