USC TE Cameron compares to Saints’ Graham

With all 32 NFL teams in attendance, 21 players worked out Wednesday at USC’s pro day.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, Chargers coach Norv Turner and Packers general manager Ted Thompson were among the 75 NFL representatives on hand.

While OT Tyron Smith was the highlight of the day, there were several other prospects who worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine trying to improve their draft stock.

One player who moved up is TE Jordan Cameron, who stood on his combine numbers but had a lights out positional workout. At one point Jordan was a basketball player at BYU, but transferred to USC and started out as a receiver. At 6-foot-4 7/8, 250 pounds, he’s filled out as a tight end. Considering his basketball background, he reminds me of Saints TE Jimmy Graham, but has even more upside.

I looked at Cameron as a fifth-round pick before his pro day, but he’s now a third-round prospect.

Here are the other notable players from the pro day:

RB Allen Bradford (5-11 1/8, 240) – He ran a 4.59 40-yard dash and had a positional workout. He kept everything else from combine.

DL Jurrell Casey (6 1/4, 300) – He ran a 4.98 40 and suffered a slight pull hamstring pull. However, he still did a positional workout.

FB Stanley Havili (6, 240) – He he’s still battling a shoulder injury and did not participate.

WR/KR Ronald Johnson (5-11 1/8, 196) – He had a 4.54 40, 4.26-second short shuttle and a 6.66 three-cone drill. He also posted a 37 1/2-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-4 broad jump and did 20 reps on the bench at 225 pounds.

OL Kris O’Dowd (6-3 7/8, 309) – He did positional drills.

LB Malcolm Smith (6 1/4, 226) –He had a 4.48 in the 40, a 4.50 short shuttle and 7.09 three-cone drill. He also posted a 39 vertical, 10-5 broad jump and did 28 reps on the bench. He’s the brother of Giants WR Steve Smith.

OL Tyron Smith (6-4 7/8, 310) – He blew the doors off the bar. He had a 29 vertical and 9-1 broad jump. He posted a 4.68 short shuttle, 7.48 three-cone drill and did 31 bench reps. His 36 1/2-inch arms and size 11 hands also stood out. He put himself in the top 10 with this workout and should be the first offensive lineman drafted.

CB Shareece Wright (5-11, 185) — He did not run the 40, but posted a 4.32 short shuttle, 7.00 three-cone drill, 35 1/2 vertical and 10-foot broad jump. He got hurt in positional drills, but the injury was just a hamstring pull.
