Lindley impresses at San Diego State pro day

San Diego State’s prolific backfield was the main attraction on its Wednesday pro day, which 22 teams attended. Patriots OC Josh McDaniels and Bengals QB coach Ken Zampese were among the assistants to take in the Aztecs’ workout, which was held in ideal conditions.

Some coaches were in for a disappointment, as RB Ronnie Hillman (5-9 1/8, 195) was unable to participate in the day’s action because he had a problem with his left hamstring.

But QB Ryan Lindley (6-3 3/4, 226) put on a show, completing 67 of 73 passes on the day despite not working with any of his own receivers. Lindley is very smart and has good arm strength. He should be a fourth-round draft pick.

Here are the other notable performers from San Diego State’s pro day:

Miles Burris, LB (6-2 1/8, 232) — Burris ran 4.67 and 4.68 40-yard dashes, had a 37 1/2-inch vertical leap, 9-11 broad jump, 4.20 shuttle and 6.81 three-cone drill. He is a very fluid athlete and should be a sixth- or seventh-round pick.

Tommie Draheim, OT (6-4 1/8, 304) – Draheim had 5.05 and 5.06 40-yard dashes, a 28-inch vertical leap, 8-8 broad jump, 4.74 shuttle, 7.85 three-cone drill and 22 reps. He looked good when an OL coach worked him out. He is probably a priority free agent.
