The wet conditions weren’t ideal for Southern Mississippi’s pro day on Friday, but 14 players worked out in front of eight teams.
WR DeAndre Brown was once thought of a second coming of Randy Moss, but his production has dipped for threw straight seasons. After catching 67 balls for 12 touchdowns in 2008, he went to 47 receptions and nine scores in 2009 and just 20 grabs with three touchdowns last season. It’s an odd situation considering Southern Mississippi runs a passing-style offense.
He didn’t do anything at his workout to help him be anything more than a late-round prospect at this point.
Here are some notables numbers from players who worked out outdoors, on FieldTurf:
Brown (6-5 7/8, 238 pounds) – He had 40 times of 4.64 and 4.59 seconds. He also posted a vertical of 29 inches and an 8-11 broad jump.
DL Anthony Gray (5-11 3/4, 330) — Ran a 5.19 and 5.17 40-yard dash, a 4.61 short shuttle and 7.93 three-cone drill. He showed his strength with 39 reps on the bench. Gray also had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-4 broad jump. Despite his size, his power makes him a possible late-round pick.
