Hemby hurts hamstring at UNC pro day

It happens way too often, and it’s disappointing every time it does. The most common culprit is the hamstring.

Well, North Carolina CB Jordan Hemby (5-foot-10 7/8, 190 pounds) is the latest victim. He pulled his hamstring running the short shuttle, and the minor injury prevented him from doing the three-cone drill.

He was able to complete the 40-yard dash in 4.47 and 4.48 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot, 11-inch broad jump and 19 bench press repetitions at 225 pounds. He’s a good special teams prospect.

Here is a list of the other notable Tar Heels’ prospects that worked out on March 22, outdoors on FieldTurf:

C Lowell Dyer (6-4, 282) ran the 40-yard dash in 5.10 and 5.14 seconds, had a 27 1/2-inch vertical, an 8-6 broad jump, a 4.66-second short shuttle, a 7.63-second three-cone drill and 24 bench press reps.

DT Aleric Mullins (6-1 1/8, 319) ran 4.96 and 4.95 in the 40, had an 8-5 broad jump, a 26-inch vertical, a 4.81 short shuttle, a 7.67 three-cone drill and 35 bench press reps.

DE E.J. Wilson (6-2 1/2, 286) ran 5.00 and 4.97 in the 40, had a 32-inch vertical, a 9-5 broad jump, a 4.70 short shuttle, a 7.40 three-cone drill and stood on his bench press from the combine.

DT Cam Thomas (6-3 7/8, 335) ran 5.20 and 5.14 in the 40, had a 26-inch vertical, a 4.98 short shuttle, a 7.66 three-cone drill and stood on his broad jump and bench press.
