Pro days represent a chance for top-tier prospects to cement their status or answer any questions that might linger about their game. However, for players like Kent State safety Brian Lainhart, a good workout can get you drafted.
Lainhart, who wasn’t invited to the combine, showed good change of direction during his positional workout. He was among 15 players at the event and posted several impressive numbers Wednesday in front of 11 teams.
Lainhart (6-foot 1/4, 211 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.66 and 4.64 seconds, had a 4.32 short shuttle and 6.63 three-cone drill, all of which came indoors, on AstroTurf. He also had a 37 ½-inch vertical, a 10-5 broad jump and did 23 reps on the bench press.
