    Shawntee Spencer was not invited to the NFL scouting combine in 2004. So the NFL had to play catchup on the Pitt cornerback in the draft process after he ran a 4.48 40-yard dash at his campus workout. So 24 teams flew Spencer in for pre-draft visits, and he wound up getting selected in the second round by the San Francisco 49ers.

    Gregory Toler of tiny St. Paul's threatened Spencer's record in the 2009 draft process. Toler reportedly visited 22 teams in March and April after running in the upper 4.3s at a pro day workout.

    Playing at a Division II school in Virginia, Toler dominated his level of competition. He intercepted six passes and also returned a punt for a touchdown last season. Then he was invited to the Cactus Bowl, the Division II all-star game. He intercepted a pass and made four tackles there. Then came his 40 time. Then came all those frequent flyer miles.

    Toler (5-11, 191) ran himself into the draft and some teams now have him projected as high as a fifth-round draft pick.
