Albany State cornerback Prathon Wilkerson ran a 4.50 and a 4.55 in the 40-yard dash on grass at his campus Pro Day workout Friday in front of the New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks and the Indianapolis Colts, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation.
The Division II sleeper cornerback also posted a 30-inch vertical leap, a 4.23 short shuttle, a 7.23 three-cone, bench pressed 225 pounds 13 times and registered a 9-3 broad jump.
The 5-9 1/2, 185-pounder managed to stick with speedy, imposing Fort Valley State wide receiver Ricardo Lockette during the regular season and at the HCBU all-star game.
He recorded 38 tackles, three for losses, 16 pass pass deflections and seven interceptions last season, returning one for a touchdown.
He intercepted one pass as a junior with seven pass deflections and was named Special Teams Player of the Year by Albany.
With all the buzz generated by Lockette, teams are gaining interest in defensive backs who have competed well against him.
