Every team was represented at Virginia Tech’s March 17 pro day, where 17 players worked out.
RB Ryan Williams impressed in positional workouts. He had a 4.53 and 4.54 times in the 40-yard dash. At 5-foot-9 1/2, 211 pounds, he reminds me some of the Eagles’ LeSean McCoy.
Running back coaches from Cincinnati, Denver and Atlanta were on hand to see Williams. He had some injury concerns, including a hamstring problem that forced him to miss four games last season.
If Williams can prove he can stay healthy, Williams could be the second or third back selected. He’s a compact runner with good quickness and catches the ball well.
Here are the other notables from an indoor workout on AstroTurf:
QB Tyrod Taylor (6 7/8, 216) – Only did positional workouts, standing his combine numbers.
RB Darren Evans (5 10 3/4, 226) – Stood by his combine numbers, but did positional workout.
CB Rashad Carmichael (5 10 1/4, 189) – He ran 4.43 and 4.45 in the 40, had a 4.15 short shuttle, 33 vertical and 10-1 broad jump.
DL John Graves (6 3 1/8, 279) – He posted 40 times of 5.10 and 5.09, a 4.56 short shuttle and 7.40 three-cone drill. He also had a 32 1/2 vertical, 10-1 broad jump
S Davon Morgan (5-11 5/8, 194) – He had 4.75 and 4.73 40s, a 3.93 short shuttle, 6.92 three-cone
and did 15 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.
