Representatives from eight teams gathered at the Eastern Washington pro day March 7. Prospects worked out at the facility of the AFL’s Spokane Shock, where they ran on old AstroTurf, a less-than-ideal surface.
Matt Johnson, S, (6-foot-5/8, 211 pounds) — He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 and 4.54 seconds. Johnson recorded a 38-inch vertical, a 10-foot-1 broad jump, a 4.07-second short shuttle and a 6.84-second three-cone. He also threw the bar up 18 times. Johnson, a first-team All-American in 2010, suffered a biceps injury that knocked him out for much of the 2011 season. However, Johnson surprised many by recovering quickly enough to have a great workout at his pro day. Since then, seven teams have brought him in for visits, and the Dolphins, Seahawks, Colts and Giants worked him out personally.
Representatives from eight teams were at the Colorado pro day March 8 to watch prospects run in ideal conditions indoors on FieldTurf.
Ryan Miller, OG, (6-7 1/8, 318) — Miller, who kept all of the times and measurements that he recorded at the NFL Scouting Combine, conducted a position workout. Miller’s fellow offensive lineman Ethan Adkins worked out with him.
Toney Clemons, WR, (6-2 1/8, 210) — Clemons ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 and 4.46 seconds. He registered a 36-inch vertical, a 10-8 broad jump, a 4.33-second short shuttle and a 6.93-second three-cone. He also did 11 strength lifts. Clemons looked good catching the ball, with QB Tyler Hansen throwing to him.
Taylor Embree, WR, (6-3, 209) — Embree, a receiver from UCLA, worked out at Colorado because his father, Jon Embree, is the Buffaloes’ head coach. Embree did the broad jump and nothing else.
