Arkansas State DE Alex Carrington possibly sealed his fate at the school’s pro day, as eight NFL teams showed up to watch five players work out outdoors on FieldTurf.
Carrington (6-foot-5, 280 pounds), performing in front of defensive line coaches from Cleveland and Baltimore, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.97 and 4.93 seconds against and with the wind, respectively. He had a 33-inch vertical jump, a 10-foot-2 broad jump, a 4.81-second short shuttle, a 7.64-second three-cone drill, all things he did not do at the NFL Scouting Combine. Afterward, Carrington impressed as he went through a very tough workout that took 30 to 40 minutes.
Safety Marcus Brown (6-0 1/2 , 194) ran 4.44 against the wind and 4.37 with it in the 40. He had a 36 ½-inch vertical, 10-11 broad jump, 4.49 short shuttle, and 8.04 three-cone drill.
