i was reading this and thought i would post it in case anyone was curious about sweed, charles or the others horns.
Former Longhorns Brandon Foster and Limas Sweed impressed a bevy of NFL scouts Wednesday during Texas’ annual pro day.
Foster, a cornerback, ran a 4.28 time in the 40-yard dash. He also showed athleticism with a 38-inch vertical jump. His performance might offset the fact that Foster was measured at 5-7. That’s about two inches shorter than NFL teams would prefer.
Sweed, who is projected as a mid-to-late, first rounder, ran a 4.40, shaving nearly a tenth of a second off of the time he ran at the NFL combine last month.
Other notables from pro day:
Tight end Jermichael Finley ran a 4.62, dropping his time from the combine by .24. His time is now the second fastest run by a tight end in workouts leading up to next month’s draft.
Running back Jamaal Charles elected not to run, allowing his 4.38 time that he posted at the combine to stand. Charles did participate in position drills.
Backup safety Drew Kelson posted a 41.5-inch vertical jump and ran a 4.45. We’re checking to see if any other player in the country has jumped higher in draft workouts.
Defensive tackle Derek Lokey did 38 reps on the 225-pound bench press. He also worked out at fullback and deep snapper.
Defensive tackle Frank Okam dropped 12 pounds since his weigh-in at the combine. He is weighing 335 right now.
Safety Marcus Griffin ran a 4.5, with receiver Billy Pittman coming in at 4.56. Both were improvements of roughly .2 seconds from the combine.
