NFL contingent on hand at Oklahoma Pro Days Workout

Published on March 9, 2010 by     

Oklahoma Bradford Football

Oklahoma has three prospects whom many consider the top player in the draft at his position, and a fourth who is quickly rising up draft boards after a superb combine.

That’s why representatives from 31 of the 32 NFL teams, including Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo, 49ers GM Scot McCloughan, Packers GM Ted Thompson, and Lions GM Martin Mayhew, showed up Tuesday morning in Norman for OU’s pro day. They left with little more than what they had already gathered on the school’s top prospects in Indianapolis last month.

As expected, quarterback Sam Bradford did not work out. He is in Pensacola, Fla., preparing for the draft at the Athletes’ Performance training facility. He has a personal workout scheduled for March 25.

DT Gerald McCoy (6-foot-4, 298 pounds) and TE Jermaine Gresham (6-5, 259) were each measured and weighed, and did individual drills on the field, but they did not participate in any of the timed events. Only OT Trent Williams (6-4, 314), who had an outstanding combine, was timed, but just in the 20-yard shuttle (4.4 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.40). He stood on his combine times for the rest of the events. And why not after posting the second-fastest 40 among offensive linemen (4.88), the top vertical jump, and the third-longest broad jump.

No surprise that Spagnuolo and Mayhew were in attendance, considering their teams own the first two picks in the draft and McCoy is a candidate to land with either club.

Among some of those who did participate in the events:

» CB Dominique Franks (5-11, 191) ran a blazing 4.47-second 40, which would have tied him for third-best at the combine among cornerbacks. He had an 11.72-second 60-yard shuttle, the only other event he participated in.

» RB Chris Brown (5-10 1/2, 211) completed 19 reps on the bench press, which would have tied him for eighth among running backs at the combine. He did not participate in any other event.

» LB Keenan Clayton (6-1, 229) had a 4.57 40-yard dash, a 4.20-second 20-yard shuttle, a 6.85-second three-cone drill, and a 10-7 broad jump.

» NT DeMarcus Granger (6-1, 320) only took part in the bench press. His 32 reps would have tied him for the sixth-best mark among defensive linemen at the combine.

» CB Brian Jackson (6-0 1/2, 199) had a 4.60 40, a 38.0 vertical jump and a 10-1 broad jump. There are some thoughts that he could play safety in the NFL.
