While Matthew Stafford was the focal point at Georgia’s pro day, there were a few other standouts on hand. Not the least of which was RB Knowshon Moreno.

The rusher, whom NFL Network’s Mike Mayock considers the best at his position in the draft, measured in at 5-foot-10 5/8, 210 pounds. Unfortunately, Moreno had been sick all week and appeared weakened. He ran a 4.60 and 4.62 in the 40, but kept the rest of his workout numbers from the combine. He did look sharp catching the ball in position drills. Bengals running backs coach Jim Anderson spent a great deal of time working out Moreno.

Here were some of the other prospects of note at Georgia’s pro day:

WR Mohamed Massaquoi (6-1 1/2, 207 pounds) ran a 4.51 and 4.54 in the 40, had a 10-foot, 7-inch broad jump, a 4.15 short shuttle, a 7.07 three-cone drill and did position drills. He caught the ball well.

FB Brannan Southerland (6-0, 245 pounds) kept his workout numbers from the combine and did position drills.

DT Corvey Irvin (6-3 1/8, 302 pounds) ran a 4.99 and 5.01 in the 40, had a 25-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 7-inch broad jump, a 4.66 short shuttle, a 7.60 three-cone drill and did not do a bench press.

DE Jarius Wynn (6-3 1/8, 272 pounds) ran a 4.94 and 4.97 in the 40, had a 29-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 5-inch broad jump, a 4.66 short shuttle, a 7.27 three-cone drill and did 21 bench press reps.

All 32 teams had representatives there and a total of about 70 people, including the entire staff from the Atlanta Falcons, Lions QB coach Jeff Horton and GM Martin Mayhew, Seattle GM Tim Ruskell and Carolina offensive coordinator Jeff Davidson were in attendance.
