Wide receiver Percy Harvin was the headliner at Florida’s pro day today in Gainesville. A slew of wide receiver coaches came out to watch Harvin perform, and Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman, Panthers general manager Marty Hurney, and Bucs GM Mark Dominik and coach Raheem Morris also were in attendance.

Harvin (5-foot-11 3/4, 193 pounds) did not disappoint. He kept his running-drill numbers from the combine, but he had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump and did 20 bench-press lifts. He looked exceptional in position drills and caught the ball well. He also showed great explosion.

Another player who opened eyes Wednesday was tight end Cornelius Ingram. After sitting out this past season because of a knee injury, Ingram is healthy again and showing it on the field. He ran 4.72 and 4.69 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump and was sharp in position drills.

Former Florida and NFL player Doug Johnson was the quarterback during receiving drills and did a great job running a scripted workout so scouts could see the prospects catch a variety of different passes.

Here are some other notable players among the 12 who worked out on the grass field:

WR Louis Murphy (6-2 5/8, 207 pounds) ran a 4.45-second short shuttle and a 6.95-second three-cone drill. He ran position drills.

OT Jason Watkins (6-5 3/4, 319 pounds) did 19 bench-press reps, but he kept the rest of his numbers from the combine. He did position workouts.

OT Phil Trautwein (6-6, 308 pounds) ran 5.40 and 5.36 seconds in the 40, had a 27-inch vertical and an 8-foot, 3-inch broad jump and did 23 bench-press reps.
