Green, Bentley draw teams to Louisiana-Lafayette

Twenty three teams showed up to Louisiana-Lafayette’s pro day on Tuesday. Both CB Dwight Bentley (5-foot-9 7/8, 183 pounds) and TE Ladarius Green  (6-5 7/8, 239) were integral to the Ragin’ Cajuns’ success last year, and now each one is poised to reap the rewards of a strong season.

Bentley posted a 35.5-inch vertical leap at his pro day. He showed quick feet and good closing ability in position drills.

Green looked very smooth and fluid in position drills, and he caught every ball thrown to him.  He recorded a 35.5-inch vertical leap, 10-6 broad jump, and 17 reps in the bench press. He has a chance to be selected at the end of the third round.

Northwestern State CB Jeremy Lane (6-0, 190) also showed up to the pro day and was a revelation. He ran 4.53 and 4.56 40-yard dashes and had a 39.5 vertical leap, 10-8 broad jump, 4.32 shuttle. 7.02 three-cone, and 12 bench press reps. He had a good workout and resembles former Louisiana-Lafayette standout Ike Taylor. He should be a third-day pick, and could be the first non-combine invitee selected in the draft.

Lane held another workout at Northwestern State, which was attended by five coaches, including a representative from the New York Jets. Lane ran 4.48 and 4.51 seconds in the 40-yard dash, had a 42-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-10 broad jump, ran a 9.14-second short shuttle and executed 12 strength lifts of 225 pounds. Lane held onto his three-cone time from the Louisiana-Lafayette pro day. Lane’s workout at Northwestern State was run on FieldTurf.
