Wideouts make mark at San Diego State pro day

Published on April 3, 2011 by     Seahawk Fanatic

San Diego State hosted its pro day on March 24, providing a platform for eight Aztec players with NFL aspirations.

Representatives from 17 teams were in attendance, including San Diego Chargers head coach Norv Turner and Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera. The event was held outdoors on FieldTurf.

Turner ran the drills for wide receivers, with two players standing out among the mix.

Vince Brown (5-foot-11 3/8, 187 pounds) was a participant at the NFL Scouting Combine, but he replaced some of those numbers at the pro day. Brown posted 40-yard dash times of 4.57 and 4.59 seconds and measured 36 inches in the vertical leap. A classic possession receiver, Brown makes up for a lack of speed with good hands. He showed off that pass-catching ability during positional drills.

Fellow wideout DeMarco Sampson (6-2 1/8, 201) also attended the combine and posted a set of fresh numbers at the pro day. He posted a pair of 40 times at 4.41, had a 35 1/2 vertical jump, 10-foot broad jump, 4.26-second short shuttle and 6.93 three-cone drill. He thrived in his positional workout with Turner, and may have increased his draft standing from a seventh-round pick to the fifth or even fourth round.
