Former Syracuse football LB Shyheim Cullen has entered the NFL Supplemental Draft. In anticipation of that he has set a Pro Day, here are the details.
A few weeks ago former Syracuse football linebacker Shyheim Cullen was ruled ineligible by the NCAA.
According to his stepfather John, Shyheim “was devastated he wasn’t able to return to his team for the 2019 season. He was really looking to building on what he started last year.”
With the collegiate route no longer on the table, Cullen and his family decided the NFL supplemental draft was the best way to go.
Although it’s not automatic, you have to apply to be accepted into the supplemental draft. After filing his petition (which is reviewed on a case-by-case basis), he received his approval Stephen Bailey of Syracuse.com was first to report the news.
After being accepted into the draft pool, Cullen started receiving immediate interest from NFL teams. The attention he received was so overwhelming that he and his representation decided to host a Pro Day.
Pro Day details:
- The Pro Day will be in Lowell, Massachusetts at 4 p.m. on Monday, July 1.
- Shyheim will do all the NFL Combine events at his Pro Day:
- Bench press, vertical leap, the 40-yard dash, 3-cone drill, 20 and 60-yard shuttle.
- Cullen will take his full measurements for NFL teams.
- On top of that Shyheim will also do individual linebacker drills.
If NFL teams like what they see they may choose to bring Shyheim back to their facilities for a private individual workout ahead of the NFL Supplemental Draft on July 10.
Cullen is represented by Sean Stellato of Stellato Sports (America’s Premiere Sports Agency). One of Sean’s other clients is former Syracuse football wide receiver, Jamal Custis. Shortly after going unselected in the 2019 NFL Draft, Custis signed the richest undrafted free agent deal over the last two years with the Kansas City Chiefs.
In other words, Shyheim is in excellent hands as he prepares himself for his professional future. 18 NFL teams have expressed interest and have called Cullen personally, a few more teams have contacted his agent to express interest, per his stepfather John.
