University of Colorado cornerback Ben Burney may have boosted his chances of securing gainful employment after graduation, clocking 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash at the school’s pro day. Burney, who did not participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, was impressive in all of the skills (see below) and his performance elevated him from a free agent to a low draft choice.
Scouts from seven NFL teams watched Burney and 11 other Colorado players work out indoors on FieldTurf on Wednesday, after they were treated to a magnificent rocky mountain lunch.
Burney (5-foot-10 5/8, 202 pounds) ran 4.38 and 4.45 in the 40, had a 39-inch vertical leap, 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, 4.15 short shuttle, 6.71 three-cone drill and 16 reps in the bench press.
Tight end Riar Geer measured in at 6-3, 259 pounds and chose to stand on his results from the combine.
Linebacker Marcus Burton (5-11 1/2, 258) ran 4.75 and 4.77 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical leap, 9-foot, 2-inch broad jump, 4.30 short shuttle, 6.88 three-cone drill and 25 bench press reps.
TE Pat Devenny (6-3, 239) ran 4.78 and 4.80 in the 40, had a 34-inch vertical leap, 9-foot, 3-inch broad jump, 4.22 short shuttle, 7.12 three-cone drill and 18 bench press reps.
