Tulane -

OT Pete Hendrickson (6-foot-7 3/8, 304 pounds) — He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.04 seconds with the wind and 5.14 against it, 4.62 in the short shuttle and 7.28 in the 3-cone drill. He also had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-4 broad jump and did 25 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.

----------------------------------------------
Auburn -

DL Zach Clayton (6-foot-2, 299 pounds) worked out really well and went from not being drafted to drafted with his workout. He’s an overachiever, and I was impressed with his athletic ability. He ran a 4.87-second 40-yard dash, had a 33 1/2-inch vertical, 10-foot broad jump, 4.46 short shuttle, and a 7.35 3-cone drill. I thought he was the biggest surprise here.

Texas A&M -

A third Aggie of note who worked out was defensive tackle Lucas Patterson, who was not invited to the combine.

Patterson (6-foot-4 1/8, 293) posted times of 5.10 and 5.15 in the 40, clocked 4.40 in the short shuttle and 7.52 in the 3-cone drill. He lifted 32 reps of 225 pounds and had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump to go with an 8-foot, 6-inch broad jump.

------------------------------------------------

TCU -

Colin Jones, who was second-team All-Mountain West last season, was very good in everything he did Friday, impressing with 4.34 and 4.38 times in the 40-yard dash, a 37-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-4 inch broad jump.

I would describe Jones, who didn’t play much before his senior season only starting five games in 2009, as a late bloomer. He reminds me some of Cliff Harris, who went to six Pro Bowls after we signed him with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 1970.

Jones really came out of the blue with his performance. He’s a very good special teams player, and after today, I could see him getting drafted, probably in the late rounds.

Jones (5-11 ½, 201) — He ran 4.34 and 4.38 in the 40, with a vertical of 37, a 10-4 broad jump, a 4.09 short shuttle and a 6.69 in the three-cone drill. Jones did 20 bench bench reps of 225 pounds. He was not at the combine.

West Texas A&M -

Canyon, Texas — West Texas A&M might not have the biggest name draw, but the university seems to produce NFL talent each year. In 2010, Bears OT J’Marcus Webb went from seventh-round pick to starting 12 games for the Bears.

This time around, it appears WR Stephen Burton could be the one to hear his named called. He was impressive during a positional workout with 15 teams in attendance, but it was his outstanding time in the 10-yard split in the 40-yard dash that really stood out. He had a time of 1.46 seconds, which speaks to his quickness as a player and could help him go as high as late in the third round.

Here are some other notables from the 11 players who showcased their skills outdoors, on FieldTurf:

Burton (6-foot-1 3/8, 224 pounds) – He had a 40 time of 4.38 and 4.44 seconds. He also turned in a 35-inch vertical and 10-4 broad jump to go with 19 reps on the bench.

Oregon State -

DE/OLB Gabe Miller (6-3 ¼, 250) — He was not at the combine. He ran 4.61 and 4.63 40s, had a 36-inch vertical, a 9-6 broad jump, a 4.22 short shuttle, a 6.93 3-cone drill, and did 33 bench press reps. With his performance, he probably vaulted himself to become a lower-round pick.

----------------------------------------------

Southern Miss -

DL Anthony Gray (5-11 3/4, 330) — Ran a 5.19 and 5.17 40-yard dash, a 4.61 short shuttle and 7.93 three-cone drill. He showed his strength with 39 reps on the bench. Gray also had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-4 broad jump. Despite his size, his power makes him a possible late-round pick.

----------------------------------------------

Alabama A&M -

DT Frank Kearse (6-foot-4, 315 pounds) — He ran 5.30 and 5.44 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 30-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot-7 broad jump, and did 22 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds. He also posted 4.66 and 7.80 in the short shuttle and 3-cone drill, respectively. Scouts were impressed with him, and the Steelers’ Mark Gorscak worked out Kearse individually.

Central Michigan -

CB Vince Agnew measured 5-foot-10, 192 pounds. Agnew was fast, running 4.38 and 4.40 in the 40-yard dash. He had a 39 1/2 vertical jump, an 11.2 broad jump, 4.18 short shuttle, 6.68 three cone drill and did 14 reps on the bench press. He reminds me of another MAC guy, Usama Young, who had a great workout at Kent State and drew a lot of attention. Teams are going to look at Agnew after this great workout.

----------------------------------------

Georgia Tech -

QB Josh Nesbitt wanted a chance to show what he can do as a running back, but that didn’t happen because they needed him to throw passes. He’ll get another opportunity to prove his ability as a runner, but he’s a very good athlete. Historically, other guys have made the transition from quarterback to other positions. He might also get a look as a safety and will likely be a sixth- or seven-round pick.

Nesbitt (6 3/4, 212) – He had 40 times of 4.59 and 4.67, a 4.10 short shuttle and 7.24 three-cone. He also posted a 34 1/2 vertical, 10-broad jump and did 19 reps on the bench.

Stanford -

DB Richard Sherman measured 6-foot-2 and 3/8-inches, and 194 pounds. Sherman ran 4.49 and 4.51 in the 40-yard dash, along with a 37-inch vertical jump, an 11-foot broad jump, a 4.33 short shuttle, and a 6.74 3-cone drill. Sherman worked out very well.

Abilene Christian -

Edmond Gates might be small-school, but he has the potential to be big-time in the NFL.

As if the Abilene Christian wide receiver’s performance at the NFL Scouting Combine last month hadn’t done enough for his draft stock, Gates put on a show once again in front of representatives from 22 teams at the school’s pro day on Monday held outdoors on FieldTurf.


The conditions were windy, but that didn’t stop Gates from wowing the crowd.

Gates (6 feet, 189 pounds) stood on his impressive combine 40-yard dash time of 4.37 seconds — which was tied for tops in Indy among receivers — but re-did the broad jump, posting an 11-foot-2 mark better than his 10-11 jump at the combine, which was second among receivers. Gates also had a 4.13 short shuttle and a 6.82 3-cone drill.

During his individual workout, Gates was outstanding, looking more advanced than Bears WR Johnny Knox, another Abilene Christian alum who was named to the Pro Bowl as a rookie in 2009 and has done pretty well for himself overall in the NFL.

Gates is every bit as good as Knox, probably better based on what we’ve seen of him. The fact that 22 teams showed up to watch Gates work out tells you how good he is. It’s not like he was just an OK starter at a small school; he was a star. And he has backed it up in workouts. Knox’s success also gives credence to Gates’ ability.

Knox was a fifth rounder. I’d say Gates is a third or fourth rounder. A team like New England has a great advantage because they’ve got two third-round picks. Somebody with two picks in those rounds can afford to take a little bit of a gamble on a player who has played lesser competition.

In this case, that decision could lead to a big payoff.

North Dakota State -

One player who stood out was CB Josh Gatlin who measured 6-foot-1 1/8-inches tall and weighed 196 pounds. He ran 4.39 and 4.40 in the 40-yard dash, had a 35.6-inch vertical jump, a 9.10-inch broad jump, 4.29 short shuttle, 7.03 3-cone drill and did eight reps on the bench press.

Gatlin looked really good, not enough to get drafted, but should be signed as a rookie free agent.

Iowa -

Iowa certainly has its fair share of intriguing draft prospects, and that was evident at the school’s pro day on Monday, with representatives from 20 teams on hand to watch 14 players work out.

No Hawkeye caught the attention of pro scouts more than DE Adrian Clayborn, who looked really good in his workout in front of D-line coaches from Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Arizona, and Cincinnati. Clayborn (6-3 1/8, 278 pounds) did a vertical jump of 35 ½ inches and a broad jump of 9-6. He posted a time of 7.08 seconds in the short shuttle and did 17 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.

The number of lifts could be a slight concern, because Clayborn is not as strong as most DEs, but he is very explosive. He’s got a great first move, which is why he will be a top-20 pick.

Iowa QB Ricky Stanzi also did himself some good Monday with a workout that was superior to his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine. Stanzi (6-4 1/8, 224) ran 4.93 twice in the 40, had a 34-inch vertical, a 9-7 broad jump, and ran 4.56 and 7.23 in the short shuttle and 3-cone drill, respectively, to go with 16 bench-press reps. He definitely helped his stock, which is good since he had an audience of QB coaches that included Carolina and Baltimore.

Other notable players to work out:

DL Christian Ballard (6-4 ½, 286) — He ran 4.70 twice in the 40, had a 34-inch vertical and 9-7 broad jump, posted times of 4.56 in the short shuttle and 7.23 in the 3-cone drill, and did 16 strength lifts.

Indiana -

A year ago, Rodger Saffold was the first pick in the second round and ended up starting all 16 games for the Rams as a rookie.

James Brewer (6-foot-6 1/2, 320 pounds) is trying to become the next Indiana offensive lineman to make the jump to the NFL.

He did his best to help his stock at Indiana’s pro day on March 10. There were 18 teams in attendance to see Brewer and nine others workout indoors, on FieldTurf.

Brewer kept his combine numbers, but looked good in position drills. He also had a private workout with Browns offensive line coach George Warhop in the days following the event.

Brewer has size and potential, but isn’t quite as polished as Saffold was coming out. He only played one year of high school ball and started just 21 games, so it will take a year or two to refine his technique.

Brewer is a possible late third- or early fourth-round pick.

Ohio University -

The elements were so bad at Ohio’s pro day on March 10 that the 13 players who worked out had to run their 40-yard dashes under a tent.

Still, WR Terrence McCrae (6-foot-2 5/8, 194 pounds) stood out during his workout on a cold, wet field. He put up 40 times of 4.49 and 4.42 seconds, a 4.22 short shuttle and 6.82 three-cone drill in front of 12 teams. He had a 35-inch vertical, 10-4 broad jump and did eight reps on the bench at 225 pounds.

He also met privately with the Dolphins and Chiefs, and appears to be a priority free agent at this point.

DB Donovan Fletcher, who is probably best suited to play safety at the next level, measured in at 5-11 3/8, 204 pounds. He showed strength with 29 bench reps to go with 40 times of 4.63 and 4.59 seconds. He has had a 4.27 short shuttle, 7.09 three-cone, 38 1/2 vertical and 10-4 broad jump.

Both McCrae and Fletcher are priority free-agent types.

Richmond -

Two prospects confirmed their status as potential picks in the second half of the NFL draft with strong workouts at the Richmond pro day on March 18.

Twelve teams were present to watch a total of six players work out. A pair who were at the NFL Scouting Combine stood out.

Defensive back Justin Rogers measured 5-foot-10 3/8 and weighed 183 pounds. He blazed to 40-yard dash times of 4.42 and 4.40 seconds, ran a 4.20 short shuttle and a 6.69 3-cone drill. He also went through a battery of position drills.

Defensive lineman Martin Parker (6-2 1/4, 300) brings 34-inch arms and an 80-inch wingspan to the table. He re-ran the 40 in 4.95 and 4.92 seconds and benched 225 pounds 23 times while standing on the rest of his combine numbers.

While John Mitchell is sure going to do his due diligence on Clayborn, he will likely be well out of our range with our first pick. He was likely present to get a close-up look at Ballard instead, who seems like a solid second round pick.

The DL depth in this draft is so impressive, that nearly half of the first round prospects come from the d-line. If 12-14 teams take a DL in first, it is likely that those teams will look elsewhere in round 2, so it is possible that he could fall a bit.

South Florida -

Among the 15 players to work out, DL Terrell McClain (6-foot-1 ¾, 291 pounds) ran 4.82 and 4.96 seconds in the 40-yard dash and stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He followed his 40s up with an outstanding workout. Marinelli tried to wear him out, but McClain was in superb shape. He was explosive.

Central Florida -

One player who was at the combine whose stock is rising is tackle Jah Reid (6-7 1/2, 321). Several teams have worked Reid out, and even though he fully participated at the combine, he insisted on doing all of the drills over again, which left a favorable impression on NFL personnel. Reid ran 5.32 and 5.29 in the 40, had a 29-inch vertical jump, a 9-3 broad jump, a 4.59 short shuttle and a 7.59 3-cone. He also bench pressed 23 reps of 225 pounds.

Defensive end/outside linebacker Bruce Miller (6-1 5/8, 248) also did the drills again despite running them at the combine, and in addition to his defensive positions, teams worked him out at fullback. Miller ran 40s of 4.65 and 4.67, jumped a 33 1/2 vertical and a 9-7 broad jump, and he clocked 4.31 in the short shuttle and 6.75 in the 3-cone.

Syracuse -

Delone Carter is the type of player that’s en vogue in the NFL right now.

A compact running back out of Syracuse, Carter is a change-of-pace type with above-average skills as a receiver out of the backfield.

Carter was one of 15 NFL hopefuls on display at Syracuse’s March 23 pro day. Representatives from 26 teams attended the event, held indoors on FieldTurf.


Carter (5-8 5/8, 224) ran 40 times of 4.50 and 4.46 and posted a 10-1 broad jump. He stood on his NFL Scouting Combine times in the vertical leap and three-cone drill. He also took part in positional drills. He will find a home somewhere on draft day, likely somewhere in the fourth or fifth round

Penn St -

RB Evan Royster measured 5-foot-11 5/8 inches and weighed 213 pounds. Royster ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 and 4.53, and did 6.78 on the 3-cone drill. He stood on his other numbers from the combine.

WR Brett Brackett measured 6-foot-5 ¾, and weighed 248 pounds. He ran 4.61 and 4.68 in the 40-yard dash, had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 9.10 broad, 4.24 short shuttle, 6.74 3-cone, and 22 reps on the bench press.

Marshall -

When Mario Harvey found out he was not among the invitees to last month’s NFL Scouting Combine, Marshall’s pro day emerged as this fiery linebacker’s key chance to show NFL teams what Marshall fans have raved about for ages.

Of the 12 Marshall players and one small-schooler who worked out for NFL personnel on March 16, it was Harvey who made the most of his opportunity.

The 5-foot-10 7/8, 250-pound fireplug registered a stirring 4.46 40-yard dash and put on a strong positional workout for onlookers, including a New England Patriots scout who took particular interest in the Thundering Herd defender. Harvey also logged a 32-inch vertical and 9-5 broad jump, with a 4.19-second short shuttle and 7.13 three-cone drill result.

Harvey is an aggressive, energetic, play-making defender — some NFL team will take a chance on him for his special-teams promise and potential on defense.

Wyoming -

The best performance of the day came from S Chris Prosinski (6-foot-0 1/8, 201) who posted a 4.39 and 4.44 in the 40, a 4.28-second short shuttle and a 6.85 three-cone drill. Prosinski recorded an 11-foot, 2-inch broad jump, 39.5-inch vertical and 14 strength lifts.

Virginia CB Ras-I Dowling needed a big pro day performance Monday to prove that an injury-riddled senior season hasn’t diminished what he can bring to an NFL team, and the kid excelled in front of representatives from 25 teams who came to watch him work out.

Dowling measured in at 6-foot-1 5/8 and 199 pounds, running 4.36 and 4.43 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He also ran a 6.85 3-cone drill and 4.26 short shuttle, but stood on his jumps and bench press from the NFL Scouting Combine.

Dowling did all the DB position drills and looked very good, definitely increasing his position in the draft. He could very well end up being taken in the bottom of the first round, and definitely should be gone by the top of the second.

Of the 25 teams in attendance, 11 sent their DB coach, including Tim Walton of the Lions. It was no surprise, then, that Detroit hosted Dowling on Wednesday. Dowling actually has eight visits lined up with other teams.

South Carolina State offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath is visiting the San Francisco 49ers on Monday and the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.

Culbreath has previously visited the Detroit Lions.

The 6-foot-5, 323-pound All-American lineman has conducted a private workout previously for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Culbreath ran the 40-yard dash in the 4.9 range at his campus Pro Day workout and bench pressed 225 pounds 27 times.

He's regarded as a later-round draft target or a priority free agent with rising draft stock.

The all-conference selection played at the same school that produced former Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Orlando "Zeus" Brown.

04-19-2011, 10:49 AM
USC linebacker Malcolm Smith is visiting the New York Jets today.

He has previously visited the Seattle Seahawks and the Chicago Bears.

Smith ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds at his campus Pro Day workout where he also registered a 39-inch vertical leap, a 10-5 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 28 times.

Smith is one of the fastest linebackers in the draft and is regarded as a prospect on the rise.

The 6-foot, 226-pounder wasn't invited to the NFL scouting combine, but could be entering middle-round to later-round consideration as a weakside linebacker candidate and special-teams contributor.

Smith returned an interception 74 yards for a touchdown against Arizona State and he forced a key fumble against Arizona.

In 2009, Smith had 72 tackles, one forced fumble and an interception he returned for a touchdown.

Smith is the younger brother of New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith.

Virginia Union -

To the southeast, Virginia Union held its pro day in Richmond on March 18. Nine Virgina Union players joined seven players from small schools in the area to workout before representatives from 15 NFL teams.

OT David Mims (6-8 1/4, 331) was the Panther of note, with 29 bench-press lifts and a 5.32 40-yard dash. He’s got size, with a 36 7/8 arms and a 86 1/8 wing span, and showed well with a 8-6 broad jump, 4.80 short shuttle and 8.10 three-cone drill.

Mims has already met with the Detroit Lions and is scheduled to meet with the Baltimore Ravens down the road.

Eleven prospects with NFL dreams took the field Thursday in hopes of impressing representatives from 15 teams.

RB Baron Batch was among the players to make an impression. He stood out in position drills, which came in windy conditions, and could be a good third-down option with solid hands. Batch could be a mid-round option for a team seeking depth in the backfield.

After starting the past two years, QB Taylor Potts seems to have some potential as a late-round prospect.

Here are the numbers from an indoor workout on FieldTurf:

Batch (5-foot-9 5/8, 207 pounds) – He had times of 4.5 and 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 7.03 in the three-cone drills and 4.32 in the short shuttle. He also did 24 reps on the bench press and turned in a 39-inch vertical to go with a 10-6 broad jump.
