    <>At the Pitt workout, both DE Jabaal Sheard and safety Dom DeCicco (6-3, 231) also participated in positional drills for LBs. DeCicco, who was not at the combine, reportedly ran in the mid-to high 4.6 range for the 40, but was quicker in the shuttles and had a solid 37" VL. RB Dion Lewis reportedly ran in then 4.5 range for the 40, a slight improvement on his 4.57 time at the combine, but probably not enough to significantly affect his draft grade. Meanwhile, DE Greg Romeus who tore an ACL during the season did post 24 reps in the BP but did not participate otherwise.

    Just about every NFL has at least one scout at the Gators' pro day, but New England coach Bill Belichick and Jacksonville G.M. Gene Smith were the only senior team officials in attendance. S Ahmad Black again ran a 4.7 type 40, roughly the same time as at the combine, which is very slow for a DB.

    Most of the top LSU prospects including CB Pat Petersion, WR Terrence Tolliver, and DT Drake Nevis stood on their combine numbers and passed on the physical tests, but will take part in some of the positional drills. LB Kelvin Sheppard, who did not run at the combine because of a tweaked hamstring, finally did run the 40 at the LSO pro day, but came away disappointed as he barely cracked the 4.8 mark. Other former Tigers that did test at the LSU pro day included safety Jai Eugene (5-10, 201), who ran a 4.60 40, while posting a 32" VL and short shuttle and 3-cone drill times of 4.32 and 7.28 respectively, both of which were slower than all safeties at the combine. Meanwhile, RB Richard Murphy (6-1, 208) also ran a 4.60 40, while adding a 34" VL, 21 BP reps and shuttles times of 4.36 and 7.20, neither of which again were particularly quick. Unheralded CB Daniel Graff (5-11, 180) ran a 4.54 40 and posted times of 4.19 in the short shuttle and 6.88 in the 3-cone which were also relatively slow compared to the numbers posted at the position at the combine.
