Eleven prospects with NFL dreams took the field Thursday in hopes of impressing representatives from 15 teams.
RB Baron Batch was among the players to make an impression. He stood out in position drills, which came in windy conditions, and could be a good third-down option with solid hands. Batch could be a mid-round option for a team seeking depth in the backfield.
After starting the past two years, QB Taylor Potts seems to have some potential as a late-round prospect.
Here are the numbers from an indoor workout on FieldTurf:
Batch (5-foot-9 5/8, 207 pounds) – He had times of 4.5 and 4.52 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 7.03 in the three-cone drills and 4.32 in the short shuttle. He also did 24 reps on the bench press and turned in a 39-inch vertical to go with a 10-6 broad jump.
WR Lyle Leong (5-11 3/4, 176) – He was unable to run due to a hamstring injury. He will attend Abilene Christian’s workout on March 21.
WR Detron Lewis (5-11 7/8, 196) – He ran 4.6 and 4.61 in the 40, 6.77 in the three-cone and 4.16 in the short shuttle. He also did 17 reps on the bench press, had a 37 vertical and 10-2 broad jump.
Potts (6-4 1/8, 218) – He ran 4.87 and 4.9 in the 40, 6.96 in the three-cone and 4.24 in the short shuttle. He posted a 29 vertical and 8-11 broad jump.
DL Colby Whitlock (6-2 3/4, 302) – He stood on his combine numbers.
