Skrine on display at Tennessee-Chattanooga

Buster Skrine rocketed up draft boards with a head-turning display of speed at the combine, posting one of the fastest 40-yard dash times in Indianapolis.

The cornerback showed off his speed again on March 23, when Tennessee-Chattanooga held its pro day. Skrine was one of six players to work out in front of representatives from 15 teams, including Jacksonville Jaguars defensive backs coach Cory Undlin and Chicago Bears defensive backs coach Jon Hoke. The event was held outdoors on FieldTurf.

Skrine stood on all of his combine numbers and took part in positional workouts.

Skrine had initial offers from 11 Division I schools out of high school before concerns about his size (5-7, 145) scared off many teams and led to his ultimate arrival with the Mocs. The size remains an issue, especially when matched up against big receivers, but Skrine’s speed and quickness make him an attractive option for NFL teams.
