Syracuse held its pro day on Thursday and all eyes were on quarterback Greg Paulus. Not that the 12 NFL scouts in attendance had much choice.
The former Duke basketball standout, who transferred to Syracuse last year in order to use his final year of eligibility playing football, was one of only three players to work out for teams, and he looked smooth running.
Paulus, who measured 6-foot-1½ and weighed 210 pounds, ran consecutive 4.89-second 40-yard dashes. That would have placed him just outside the top 10 among quarterbacks at the combine.
His other measurements included a 28 1/2 -inch vertical leap, and 8-foot-7 broad jump, a 4.23-second shuttle run, and a 7.14-second cone drill.
Paulus graduated from Duke in four years and did not redshirt, which allowed him to obtain a waiver from the NCAA to play one season of football at a different school without sitting out a year. Last year, he had a workout with the Green Bay Packers.
