West Texas A&M might not have the biggest name draw, but the university seems to produce NFL talent each year. In 2010, Bears OT J’Marcus Webb went from seventh-round pick to starting 12 games for the Bears.
This time around, it appears WR Stephen Burton could be the one to hear his named called. He was impressive during a positional workout with 15 teams in attendance, but it was his outstanding time in the 10-yard split in the 40-yard dash that really stood out. He had a time of 1.46 seconds, which speaks to his quickness as a player and could help him go as high as late in the third round.
Here are some other notables from the 11 players who showcased their skills outdoors, on FieldTurf:
Burton (6-foot-1 3/8, 224 pounds) – He had a 40 time of 4.38 and 4.44 seconds. He also turned in a 35-inch vertical and 10-4 broad jump to go with 19 reps on the bench.
CB Tae Evans (5-10 5/8, 193) – He had a 4.60 and 4.69 in the 40, 4.27 short shuttle and 7.06 three-cone drill. He posted a 34 1/2 vertical, a 10-1 broad jump and 16 reps on the bench.
QB Taylor Harris (6-2 3/8, 233) – He ran 5.15 and 5.17 in the 40, had a 7.32 three-cone and 4.68 short shuttle. He also posted a 24 vertical and 8-4 broad. He showed great arm strength, but lacks top-notch athleticism.
