‘Macho’ attracts attention with his quickness

Virginia Tech CB Victor ‘Macho’ Harris (5-foot-11 1/8, 197 pounds) does not have the fastest straight-line speed of those in this year’s defensive back class, but he relies on his quickness. He posted a senstational 4.0-second short shuttle at the Hokies’ pro day on Thursday. This ran a 3.98-second short shuttle at the combine last month that placed him second among all participants.

Harris’ other numbers were also solid. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.50 seconds, had a 34-inch vertical, a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump and did 13 bench-press reps.

Here are the other notable prospects who worked out in front of 12 NFL team representatives indoors on AstroTurf:

DE/LB Orion Martin (6-2 1/4, 260 pounds) ran a 4.71 and 4.70 in the 40, had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 4.53 short shuttle and a 7.21 three-cone drill.

C Ryan Shuman (6-2 3/4, 289 pounds) ran a 5.17 and 5.22 in the 40, had a 27 1/2-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.50 short shuttle, a 7.34 three-cone drill and did 23 bench press reps.

QB Sean Glennon (6-4 1/8, 220 pounds) ran a 4.82 and 4.85 in the 40, had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 7-inch broad jump and a 4.56 short shuttle.
