Here are a few notes to pass along from Stephen F. Austin State University’s pro day on Thursday, where four players worked out for representatives for 10 teams.
The most notable player working out was LB Jabara Williams, who didn’t attend the NFL Scouting Combine. Williams had a great workout, and I think it will lift him into the third day of the draft.
Bengals linebacker coach Jeff FitzGerald was on hand, and anytime a team sends a position coach to work out a player you know there’s at least some interest. Williams also went through special teams drills and was very solid. For a player not at the combine, the workout today really helps Williams.
Here are some numbers from the workout, which was on FieldTurf:
Williams (6-foot-1 7/8, 228) – He ran 4.58 and 4.60 in the 40-yard dash, had a 36 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-foot-10 broad jump, 4.38-second short shuttle and 7.18-second three-cone drill. He also did 17 reps in the bench press.
DL Kenneth Charles (6-1 1/4, 265) — He ran 4.90 and 4.95 in the 40, had a 33 vertical, an 8-foot broad jump, 4.51 in the short shuttle, 7.38 in the three-cone drill and did 21 reps in the bench press. He will likely be an undrafted free agent.
