Miami (Ohio)

One team, the Cincinnati Bengals, came to watch Dustin Woods, and they were not disappointed by the undersized wide receiver’s numbers.

Woods (5-10 1/4, 190) ran a 4.45- and 4.48-second 40-yard dash, a 4.09-second short shuttle and a 6.65-second three-cone drill. Woods was not at the NFL Scouting Combine, but his vertical jump (41 inches) , and times in the three-cone drill (6.65 seconds) and short shuttle (4.09 seconds) would have placed him among the top three wide receivers in those events. Woods also recorded a 9-foot, 10-inch broad jump and 11 bench press repetitions.

Middle Tennessee State

Defensive line coaches from the Eagles and Dolphins, as well as Titans LB coach Dave McGinnis, were among the 18 teams on hand to watch eight players work out outdoors on FieldTurf.

DE Chris McCoy (6-foot-3 1/4, 261 pounds) displayed some of the skills that made him the 2009 Sun Belt Conference Co-Defensive Player of the Year. McCoy clocked in with a 4.79- and 4.70-second 40-yard dash, 4.51-second short shuttle and a 7.13-second three-cone drill. He posted a 33-inch vertical jump, 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump and 23 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds.

Nicholls State

Ten teams were on hand to watch 10 players outdoors on FieldTurf.

WR Antonio Robinson (6-11 1/8, 196) ran his first 40-yard dash against an approximately 10 mph wind and clocked in at 4.61 seconds. He ran his second 40 with the wind in 4.49. Robinson chose not to do a vertical jump, then, after recording a 9-foot, 5-inch broad jump, hurt his lower right leg and didn’t do anything else.
