NFL Combine: WR Notes

Arrelious Benn of Illinois showed that he most likely will be the second wide receiver drafted and ran around the 4.55 range in the 40 and had a 37 inch vertical jump and benched 225, 20 times.

Antonio Brown of Central Michigan ran in the 4.50 range in the 40, but showed quickness and agility and did a good jump catching the football.

Dez Bryant of Oklahoma State didn’t workout because of injury, but should be 100 percent by his pro day.

Carlton Mitchell of South Florida is a player that not a lot of people might have heard of, but NFL scouts sure know about him, and did a good job at his workout. He did 16 reps of 225, ran a 4.49 40 yard dash and a 10 foot 2 inch broad jump.

Golden Tate of Notre Dame did a nice job catching the football and end up running faster then many people thought running a 4.42 40 yard dash, and had a 10 foot broad jump and did 17 reps of 225.

Blair White of Michigan State had a good day, he ran in the 4.57 rang in the 40 and did 18 reps of 225 and had one of the better 3 cone drills with 6.69.

Marcus Easley of Connecticut who only started as a senior ran a very good 40 time at 4.46 and had a 10 foot 3 inch broad jump and caught the football well in the drills.

Mardy Gilyard of Cincinnati ran what every one expect him to around the 4.6 rang in the 40 but did had a 39 inch vertical jump, but showed that he has good hands and looks very natural at catching the football.

Emmanuel Sanders of SMU put up some impressive number with a 4.41, 40 yard dash a 39.5 vertical jump, a 10-6 broad jump which was the best in the wide receiver group and a 6.60, 3-cone drill. He was one of the top performers in all the drills and helped himself this week in Indy.

Scott Long of Louisville might have had one of the more impressive overall workouts he benched 225, 20 times, ran a 4.46 40 yard dash, had a 10 foot 3 inch broad jump and had the best vertical jump of the wide receiver group with 41.5 inches and the best 3-cone drill with 6.45.
