Kansas RB Sharp helps draft chances

University of Kansas RB Jake Sharp boosted his draft stock during the school’s pro day workout Wednesday. The diminutive (5-9 1/4, 194) runner, who wasn’t at the NFL Scouting Combine, posted a 4.43 in the 40-yard dash and his 10-4 broad jump matched the best leap recorded by a running back in Indianapolis.

Talent evaluators from 12 teams lined the indoor AstroTurf field to watch Sharp and nine other NFL hopefuls.

Sharp ran 4.46 and 4.43, had a 25-inch vertical leap, 10-4 broad jump, 4.06 short shuttle, 6.84 three-cone drill, and 19 bench press reps.

Wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe (6-2, 208) ran 4.53 and 4.51 in the 40, had a 34-inch vertical leap, 10-0 broad jump, 4.10 short shuttle, 7.20 three-cone drill and 11 bench press reps. Briscoe had a solid workout — he looked good in his position drills.

Kerry Meier (6-2 1/8, 215) ran 4.52 and 4.51 in the 40, stood on his results from the combine for the vertical and broad jumps, had a 4.21 short shuttle and 6.68 three-cone drill.

Defensive end Maxwell Onyegbule (6-4 5/8 268) ran 4.98 and 4.94 in the 40, had a 32-inch vertical leap, 9-10 broad jump, 4.45 short shuttle, 7.26 three-cone drill and completed 19 bench press reps.

Safety Darrell Stuckey (5-11 1/4, 204) was unable to work out because he pulled a hamstring during his combine workout.

The Jayhawks’ new coaching staff was very helpful coordinating the workouts.
