USC TE Cameron compares to Saints’ Graham

Published on March 31, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

With all 32 teams in attendance, 21 players worked out Wednesday at USC’s pro day.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, Chargers coach Norv Turner and Packers general manager Ted Thompson were among the 75 NFL representatives on hand.

While Tyron Smith was the highlight of the day, there were several other prospects from the combine trying to improve their draft stock.

One player who moved up is TE Jordan Cameron. He stood on his combine numbers, but had a lights out positional workout. At one point, Jordan was a basketball player at BYU, but transferred to USC, beginning as a receiver. At 6-foot-4 7/8, 250 pounds he’s filled out as a tight end. With his basketball background, he reminds me of Saints TE Jimmy Graham, but has more upside.

Cameron came into the event as a fifth-round pick and left as a third-round prospect.

Here are the other notable players from the pro day:

RB Allen Bradford (5-11 1/8, 240) – He ran a 4.59 40-yard dash and had a positional workout. He kept everything else from combine.

DL Jurrell Casey (6 1/4, 300) – He ran a 4.98 40 and suffered a slight pull hamstring pull. However, he still did a positional workout.

FB Stanley Havili (6, 240) – He he’s still battling a shoulder injury and did not participate.

WR/KR Ronald Johnson (5-11 1/8, 196) – He had a 4.54 40, 4.26 short shuttle and 6.66 three-cone drill. He also posted a 37 ½-vertical jump, 10-4 broad jump and did 20 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.

OL Kris O’Dowd (6-3 7/8, 309) – He did positional drills.

LB Malcolm Smith (6 1/4, 226) –He had a 4.48 in the 40, a 4.50 short shuttle and 7.09 three-cone. He also posted a 39 vertical, 10-5 broad jump and did 28 reps on the bench. He’s the brother of Giants WR Steve Smith.

OL Tyron Smith (6-4 7/8, 310) – He blew the doors off the bar. He had a 29 vertical and 9-1 broad jump. He posted a 4.68 short shuttle, 7.48 three-cone and did 31 bench reps. His 36 1/2-inch arms and size 11 hands stood out. He put himself in the top 10 with this workout and should be the first offensive lineman drafted.

CB Shareece Wright (5-11, 185) — He did not run the 40, but posted a 4.32 short shuttle, 7.00 three-cone, 35 1/2 vertical and 10-foot broad jump. He got hurt in positional drills, but the injury was just a hamstring pull.
