With his wife and little boy in tow, Oregon RB LeGarrette Blount flashed decent speed at the Ducks’ second pro day on March 18. Two TV stations were hooked up outside, and a Browns representative was in attendance to watch Blount run the 40-yard dash in 4.59 and 4.61 seconds.
He stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He checked in at 6-foot 1/2, 238 pounds — a three-pound weight loss from his combine weigh-in.
The other notable prospect that worked out was S T.J. Ward. Ward (5-10 1/4, 210) was very loose in the hips, which bodes well for his coverage ability at the next level. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.50 and 4.48 seconds, had a 7.00-second three-cone drill and a 4.12-second short shuttle.
