Prospects from several schools worked out at the Abilene Christian pro day Tuesday, including players from Abilene Christian, Tarleton State, West Texas A&M and McMurry.
Prospects ran outside on FieldTurf in wet and slippery conditions. Representatives from 16 NFL teams were there, and 28 players worked out.
Daryl Richardson, RB, Abilene Christian, (5-foot-10 3/8, 192 pounds) — Richardson ran the 40-yard dash on the slippery track, finishing in 4.49 and 4.50 seconds. He recorded a 40 1/2-inch vertical, an 11-foot-3 broad jump, a 4.29-second short shuttle and a 7.03-second three-cone, and did 16 strength lifts. Richardson was worked out as a hybrid back, doing running back and receiving drills. He had a successful workout and caught the ball well. Richardson will likely be selected in the seventh round of April’s draft or be a priority free agent.
Aston Whiteside, DE, Abilene Christian, (6-1 5/8, 260) — Whiteside ran the 40-yard dash in 4.88 and 4.87 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical, a 9-3 broad jump, a 4.53-second short shuttle and a 7.35-second three-cone, and did 19 strength lifts. Whiteside worked out as a linebacker, tight end and fullback. He’ll probably be a priority free agent.
Nick Stephens, QB, Tarleton State, (6-3 1/8, 230) — Stephens started his college career at Tennessee, where he was the starting quarterback, but transferred to Tarleton State when then-coach Lane Kiffin left for Southern California. He threw the ball very, very well. Somebody will probably bring him to camp as a priority free agent, or he could be selected in the seventh round of April’s draft.
