It happens over and over again. A player toes up to the line at the 40-yard dash, sets his hand down, explodes out of his stance and then pulls up lame after a few steps with a hamstring injury.
Unfortunately, that happened again at Texas Tech’s pro day on Friday. CB Jamar Wall tweaked his hamstring and did not finish the 40-yard dash. He did complete some drills, however.
He had a 40 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump, a 4.43-second short shuttle and a 7.25-second three-cone drill.
Wall was just one of 15 prospects that worked out indoors on AstroTurf for 20 team representatives, including Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.
Here are the the three other notable Red Raiders that worked out:
G Brandon Carter (6-foot-6 1/8, 319 pounds) ran a 5.24 and 5.25 in the 40, had a 4.75 short shuttle, a 7.09 three-cone drill and did 24 bench press repititions at 225 pounds. He kept his vertical and broad jump numbers from the combine.
OT Marlon Winn (6-4 5/8, 305) ran a 5.31 and 5.27 in the 40, had a 28 1/2-inch vertical jump, an 8-9 broad jump, a 5.18 short shuttle, a 7.97 three-cone and did 19 bench press reps.
DE Brandon Sharp (6-1 7/8, 254) ran a 4.71 and 4.73 in the 40, had a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.54 short shuttle, a 7.39 three-cone drill and did 23 bench press reps.
