Florida State’s pro day was held outdoors Monday on FieldTurf in Tallahassee, Fla., and was attended by 26 NFL teams. Linebacker coaches from the Miami Dolphins, Jacksonville Jaguars and Philadelphia Eagles were in attendance, among others.
Fifteen players worked out at the pro day, but many scouts and personnel men were there to watch DE/LB Everette Brown (6-1 7/8, 256 pounds). He turned in a 31-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump, but he otherwise stood on his numbers from the combine.
Another player to watch is CB/KR Michael Ray Garvin (5-7 5/8, 174 pounds). Garvin, a world-class track speedster, turned in times of 4.24 and 4.28 seconds in the 40-yard dash. For comparison, either one of those times would have been the fastest at the combine in Indianapolis, as Maryland’s Darrius Heyward-Bey had the best time at 4.30 seconds. Garvin also had a 36-inch vertical leap, a 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and times of 4.34 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.97 seconds in the three-cone drill.
Among other notables to work out:
RB Antone Smith (5-7 7/8, 191 pounds) also showed off his speed at the pro day with times of 4.33 and 4.36 seconds in the 40. He had a 32-inch vertical and a 10-foot, 2-inch broad jump and times of 4.32 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.90 seconds in the three-cone drill. He also put up an impressive 31 repetitions on the bench press.
CB Tony Carter (5-8 3/4, 179 pounds) put up 40 times of 4.42 and 4.41 seconds and had a 39-inch vertical. He had a 10-foot broad jump and times of 4.19 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.18 seconds in the three-cone drill, with 17 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press.
WR Greg Carr (6-5 3/8, 217 pounds) had 40 times of 4.58 and 4.65 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical leap and a 9-foot, 6-inch broad jump and times of 4.40 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.41 seconds in the three-cone drill.
