CB Cornelius Brown is a solid draft-worthy prospect, and he enhanced his standing with a fine workout at UTEP’s pro day on March 11. Brown ran the 40-yard dash in 4.46 and 4.47 seconds, had a 10-foot, 1-inch broad jump, a 31-inch vertical jump, a 4.35-second short shuttle and a 6.84-second three-cone drill.
As good as those numbers are, Brown was not the only UTEP prospect to work out well in front of seven team representatives outdoors on FieldTurf. The following two players are unlikely to get drafted, but have improved their stock as rookie free agents.
DB Da’Mon Cromartie-Smith (6-1 1/2, 206) ran 4.63 against the wind and 4.50 with the wind in the 40, had a 32-inch vertical jump, a 9-9 broad jump, a 4.47 short shuttle, a 7.24 three-cone drill and did 20 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.
WR Jeff Moturi (5-11 1/2, 183) ran 4.42 and 4.43 in the 40, had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump, a 9-10 broad jump, a 4.24 short shuttle, a 6.76 three-cone drill and did 18 bench press reps.
