Before Bradford throws, other Sooners work out

NORMAN, Okla. — While teams await quarterback Sam Bradford‘s workout Monday at Oklahoma’s pro day, other Sooners players have gone through drills.

Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren and coach Eric Mangini are on hand, as well as new Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy.

A few Oklahoma players who either did not participate in all the drills at the NFL Scouting Combine, or weren’t invited to the combine at all, worked out for NFL teams.

Running back Chris Brown, (5-10, 210) who participated at the combine, opted to go through workouts again in order to record better numbers. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 and 4.53, and he recorded a 9-foot-10 broad jump, a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump, 4.38-second short shuttle and 7.09 three-cone drill.

Tight end Brody Eldridge (259 pounds) also participated at the combine but recorded new numbers in the 40 (4.71, 4.68), broad jump (9 feet, 4 inches), short shuttle (4.44), 7.32 three-cone drill and bench press (20 reps).

Defensive end Auston English (6-3 1/4, 252) was not at the combine. He ran a 4.77 in the 40 and posted a 35-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot broad jump, a 4.33-second short shuttle, 7.21 three-cone drill and completed 25 bench press reps.

Receiver Adron Tennell (195 pounds) was not at the combine and posted a times of 4.50 and 4.55 in the 40.

Defensive tackle DeMarcus Granger measured in at 6-foot-1 3/4, 321 pounds. He did not participate in drills.

Terry Shea, a former college and NFL coach who now does quarterback consulting work for future NFL draft prospects, will be running a scripted workout for Bradford. Bradford is expected to work out at noon ET.

Following the pro day workouts, the scouts were treated to a boxed lunch from a famous local deli in Norman.
