Oklahoma State’s standout left tackle Russsell Okung was the star attraction

Russell OkungOklahoma State’s standout left tackle Russsell Okung was the star attraction at the school’s pro day Wednesday for 40 representatives from 27 NFL teams, including general managers from the Detroit Lions, Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers.

At the NFL Scouting Combine, Okung ran the 40-yard dash in 5.17 seconds and had 38 repetitions in the 225-pound bench press, the second-highest total among offensive linemen. But he suffered a minor groin injury and skipped four other drills — the vertical jump, broad jump, three-cone drill and shuttle run.

Saying he is healed and with his groin area wrapped, he performed those four drills Wednesday, recording a vertical jump of 32½ inches and a broad jump of 8 feet, 9 inches — both of which would have ranked him in the top 10 at his position had he done them at the combine.

His times in the other two drills weren’t immediately available. He skipped the bench press and the 40-yard dash.

“I really haven’t been trying to separate myself individually,” Okung said after the workout. “I’m just trying to go out there and do what I do best … and compete. If they like what they see, they like what they see.”

Okung also performed position drills with other Oklahoma State linemen. After he was finished, he and his agent spoke briefly on the field with Buffalo general manager Buddy Nix, whose team has the ninth overall pick in next month’s draft. Also attending the workout were San Francisco general manager Scot McCloughan, whose team drafts 16th, and Detroit general manager Martin Mayhew, whose team drafts second.

“I think I’m a person that’s willing to accept the pressure that’s going to be put on me,” Okung said. “That’s become kind of natural … through the whole season. You’ve got a big old target on your back so you definitely have to welcome all the pressure.”

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant opted to skip the workout in favor of a solo outing later this month.

Another high-round draft prospect, cornerback Perrish Cox, was banned from the workout by Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy. Gundy also had suspended Cox from playing in the Jan. 1 Cotton Bowl.

Quarterback Zac Robinson threw again for scouts Wednesday. Robinson said a shoulder injury that he suffered on Nov. 14 against Texas Tech has healed. Robinson was overshadowed during his career by other standout Big 12 Conference quarterbacks, including Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Texas’ Colt McCoy, but is hopeful an NFL team will take a chance on him.

“It was just a matter of getting my strength back in my … shoulder and just letting it rip like I used to,” Robinson said. “They said they saw everything they needed and I feel really good about it. I’ve just got to keep working.”
