Unfortunate occurrence at Texas Tech Pro Day

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.

Standout WR Michael Crabtree sat out the pro day following surgery on his left foot.

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.
