Mississippi DT Jerrell Powe decided to conduct almost a complete workout at the school’s pro day held Tuesday, and it just might have paid off for him.
With representatives from 18 teams present, Powe (6-foot-2, 329 pounds), who was at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, ran 5.29 and 5.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 24 ½-inch vertical jump, a 7-foot, 10-inch broad jump and ran a 4.96 short shuttle. He stood on his 3-cone drill time and bench-press lifts from the Combine.
Powe’s workout was pretty solid, probably a bit better than his performance at the Combine, which could go a long way for his hopes of being drafted.
As for DE Kentrell Lockett, he remains in limbo, waiting for the NCAA’s decision on another year of eligibility. He declined his invitation to the Combine because of the situation, and did not participate in Mississippi’s pro day as a result.
One other notable participant, DL Ted Laurent (6-0 ½, 304) ran 5.00 and 5.08 40s, had a 28-inch vertical, a 9-foot long jump, a 4.76 short shuttle, an 8.13 3-cone drill and did 29 bench-press repetitions at 225 pounds.
