Florida receiver Quinton Dunbar is training in South Florida for an opportunity to play in the NFL. A Miami native, Dunbar finished his UF career with 111 receptions for 1,500 yards and eight touchdowns in 49 games. He took time this week to talk to FOXSportsFlorida.com about his performance at the NFL Super Regional Combine in Arizona and preparations for Florida’s Pro Day on April 7. — Scott Carter

The NFL Super Regional Combine was a great experience for me to be able to go out there and showcase my talent with all 32 teams there. I think I did pretty well. All the feedback I got back from scouts was pretty positive.

I caught every ball, ran my routes nicely and I ran a fast 40. I felt like I caught the ball really well. I didn’t drop anything and ran a 4.33.

I’m feeling pretty confident at this stage of the process. I’m going to continue to work on my craft and just get ready for Pro Day and finish things off the right way.

At Pro Day I’m probably going to do my position drills and work on my jumps. At the NFL Super Regional Combine, I was pretty worn out during my broad jump and the three-cone drill due to running routes and other things. I didn’t really get to do the jumps there because my legs were already gone. I was cramping and stuff like that.

It’s going to be pretty fun to come back to Florida for Pro Day. I’ve been there for the last four years and I’ve built a lot of relationships there. Just to go back and hang with some of the guys will just be a fun experience.

It’s just another chance to prove myself. You can never get too comfortable. I’ve made great strides from the beginning until now so I’m just going to continue to get better. It’s never really over until the draft and after the draft.

Diary track

Now it’s back to training in South Florida to get ready for Pro Day. That’s the next step. I’ll be doing the same thing I’ve been doing. I want to just continue to get stronger and continue to maintain my weight, eat healthy and things like that.

The two big obstacles (regional combine and super regional) I have already jumped. So the last one is just to fine tune things and fine tune my routes and that’s pretty much it.

I haven’t made all my plans for Pro Day but I will probably come up to Gainesville three or four days ahead of time to get ready. I’m looking forward to that and another chance to show what I can do.
