    Check out CB Chris McKenzie's workout numbers as reported by Gil Brandt:

    Brace yourself: Eleven players ran for times of 4.40 and under! Eleven! Of the 11, six ran for times of 4.35 and under! Those six young men are Arizona State's Chris McKenzie (4.31), Auburn's Carlos Rogers (4.31), Houston's Stanford Routt (4.34), Nebraska's Fabian Washington (4.31), Oklahoma State's Darrent Williams (4.31) and Stanford's Stanley Wilson (4.34). All six of these guys worked out as cornerbacks, so that is a very promising sign for the future of NFL cover corners.

    If that weren't enough, McKenzie also leaped 45 inches in the vertical jump and 11 feet, 4 inches in the broad jump. McKenzie told he felt he would have done even better had he not strained a pectoral muscle while doing his bench presses. His former coach at Glendale (Ariz.) Community College, Joe Kersting, claims to have timed McKenzie in under 4.2 in the 40! McKenzie talked to only a handful of teams at the combine -- he claims he was "under the radar" at Arizona State, even though the Sun Devils went 9-3 last season -- but he'll certainly get a longer look when they see his numbers, which he'll try to improve upon at one of ASU's two pro days. His agent, Jack Scharf of Momentum Sports Group, was especially pleased. "(We) knew I made myself a bit of change," McKenzie said.
