Even though Jacksonville used its first four selections in the 2010 draft addressing its front four, defensive line coach Joe Cullen worked out Arizona DE Ricky Elmore during the school’s pro day Saturday.
Elmore put up 21.5 sacks over the past two seasons and met again with Cullen after the event, which was attended by 28 teams, including Browns LB coach Bill Davis.
RB Nic Grigsby also caught the attention of scouts. A lot of people didn’t know about him until his workout, but the athleticism he displayed will make him a late-round selection.
In total, 22 prospects were in attendance and performed outdoors, on FieldTurf. Here are some other notables:
