Oregon CB Byrd finally works out for scouts

Jairus Byrd, Oregon’s quick defensive back who did not participate in the Ducks’ pro day, held a private workout for scouts Thursday indoors on FieldTurf.

He has decent size at 5-foot-10, 201 pounds, and impressive change of direction with a 4.10 short shuttle and 6.75 three-cone drill, but lacks pure speed as he ran a 4.68 and 4.69 in the 40. He also had a 35-inch vertical and did 15 bench press lifts.

Here are a pair of other schools that recently held pro days:


Sixteen teams representatives were present, including Panthers defensive coordinator Ron Meeks, to watch 10 prospects work out outdoors on a soft grass March 20. It had rained the night before. Here are the notable prospects:

DL Chris Baker (6-2 1/4, 316 pounds) ran a 4.56 short shuttle, but kept the rest of his combine numbers. He had 34 1/8-inch arms.

WR Justin Brown (6-1 3/8, 202 pounds) ran a 4.49 and 4.55 in the 40, had a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 5-inch broad jump, a 4.22 short shuttle, a 7.01 three-cone drill and did 19 bench press reps.

WR Jeremy Gilchrist (5-8 5/8, 182 pounds) ran 4.57 and 4.59 in the 40, had a 31-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 5-inch broad jump, a 4.22 short shuttle, a 6.69 three-cone drill and did 17 bench press reps.


Fifteen team representatives watched players work out indoors on FieldTurf at the Home Depot Center Thursday in Los Angeles, one day after USC’s pro day. Here are the notable prospects:

Jonathan Davis from Asuza Pacific (6-3, 210 pounds) ran a 4.58 and 4.61 in the 40, had a 33-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 4.26 short shuttle and a 6.93 three-cone drill.

DB Ryan Mouton (5-9 1/2, 179 pounds) ran a 4.47 in the 40 and had an 11-foot broard jump, but pulled a hamstring.

LS Jacob Ingram (6-3 1/4, 230 pounds) ran a 4.90 and 4.92 in the 40, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump, a 4.52 short shuttle and 18 bench press reps.

DE David Veikune (6-2 1/8, 257 pounds) ran a 4.75 and 4.80 in the 40 and kept the rest of his numbers from the combine.
