Fourteen NFL teams sent representatives to Ball State to see the private workout for 10 prospects on Thursday. OT Robert Brewster and QB Nate Davis, both of whom worked out at the combine, chose not to participate and will instead work out for teams on March 20.
Tight end Darius Hill had an impressive workout. He measured 6-foot-7 and weighed 246 pounds, had a 31-inch vertical leap, a 9-6 broad jump, and ran two 40-yard dashes in 4.75 and 4.74 seconds indoors on a hard surface. His 40 times would have been among the fastest run among tight ends at the combine.
Because of inclement weather, all the workouts were held indoors, which didn’t allow punter Chris Miller to participate. Miller, who measured 6-foot-1 and weighed 213 pounds, will work out for teams with Brewster and Davis next month.
