Bears show interest in New Mexico State’s House

Eight teams were on hand at New Mexico State’s pro day, with CB Davon House being the main attraction.

Nine players worked out Friday on FieldTurf, with House turning in a 4.35 40-yard dash after being measured at 6-foot 1/2, 195 pounds. He also had a 9-1 broad jump, but stood on his other combine numbers.

Bears defensive backs coach Gill Byrd put House through a good workout. The strength of House’s game is his speed covering receivers downfield.

House picked off 11 balls in college, but his agent, Kenny Zuckerman, said his production dropped last season (two interceptions) because he battled an ankle sprain.

At this point, House is a third- or fourth-round prospect.

Meanwhile, TE Kyle Nelson (6-2 3/8, 240) did enough to likely earn himself a free-agent contract. He ran the 40 in 4.78 and 4.76 seconds, a 4.37 short shuttle and 7.32 three-cone drill. He also had a 30-inch vertical, 8-11 broad jump and 21 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.
