Source: Former BYU WR Jonah Trinnaman Has Meeting With Chicago Bears

Could Trinnaman be the next under-the-radar BYU player to land on a 53-man NFL roster this fall?
Later today former BYU football players will participate in the school’s Pro Day event starting at 9 a.m. (MDT) at the Indoor Practice Facility.
Last year, 28 of the 32 NFL teams had representatives at BYU’s Pro Day where a handful of former Cougar standouts found a way to stick on a 53-man roster despite only one player getting selected in the Draft (Jamaal Williams).
Friday’s event will feature linebacker Fred Warner as the headliner, but former BYU wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman is garnering some underground buzz in NFL Draftnik circles. Trinnaman, who has a track and field background from his days at American Fork High, didn’t put up the stats he was expected to as a Juco transfer for the Cougars, but as we all know in the NFL Draft process, “stats are for losers.” Thanks, Mel Kiper.
Trinnaman on film was beating his defenders numerous times each week throughout the 2017 season. BYU played quarterback roulette the entire season and didn’t have the QB that could see Trinnaman enough down the field.
Regardless of the lack of production, Trinnaman is reportedly already having meetings with NFL teams in preparation for Friday’s Pro Day. According to Eric Edholm from Pro Football Weekly, Trinnaman had a dinner with the Bears.
My first thought when I saw this tweet was wondering where did they eat? As many of you know reading this, Provo doesn’t have many great restaurants that aren’t from national chains. Did Jonah take them to a Jdawgs, maybe Brick Oven (if it’s still around)? Regardless, it’s interesting to hear that Trinnaman is getting enough interest to warrant meetings with NFL teams the night before his Pro Day.
Trinnaman’s agent, Evan Brennan, joined Ben Criddle a few weeks ago on ESPN 960 AM and he feels that Trinnaman has an opportunity to turn some heads at Pro Day.
