A moment of sadness overshadowed Texas Tech’s pro day. OT Rylan Reed started out the workout exceptionally well, measuring in at 6-foot-5 1/2, 309 pounds. He then had 41 bench press reps — a tally that would have put him No. 1 among all athletes at the NFL Scouting Combine last month. That is when Reed’s day took a turn for the worse. On his first 40-yard dash, he suffered a knee injury and had to be taken to the hospital.
Here’s hoping Reed recovers quickly.
On to the rest of the prospects:
OL Louis Vasquez (6-5, 325 pounds) ran 5.22 twice in the 40, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 7-inch broad jump, a 4.94 in the short shuttle, a 7.66 three-cone drill and stood on his bench press reps from the combine. He performed well in the position drills.
DE Brandon Williams (6-3, 254 pounds) ran a 4.80 and 4.81 in the 40, had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump, 18 bench press reps and kept the rest of his numbers from the combine.
S Darcel McBath (6-0 5/8, 200 pounds) ran a 4.53 and 4.54 in the 40, had a 10-foot broad jump and 17 lifts.
QB Graham Harrell (6-2, 3/8) — ran a 4.95 in the 40, but struggled somewhat in the position drills.
