Representatives from 27 NFL teams gathered at the pro day held at Baylor on Wednesday, where 14 players went through a workout held indoors on FieldTurf.

Dallas Cowboys wide receivers coaches Derek Dooley and Keith O’Quinn, as well as Jacksonville Jaguars wide receivers coach Jerry Sullivan were among the noteworthy attendees in Waco, Texas.

Terrance Williams, WR (6-foot-2 1/8, 207 pounds) — Williams was at the NFL Scouting Combine and stood on his numbers from the event, only doing position drills at Baylor’s pro day. Williams is a really good looking athlete and is a likely second-round selection in the 2013 NFL Draft. I have Williams as the No. 37-rated prospect in this year’s draft.

Lanear Sampson, WR (5-11 1/8, 201) — Sampson ran the 40-yard dash just once, getting timed in 4.33 seconds (his official time at the combine was 4.46 seconds). He stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

Jerry Rhome — a member of the College Football Hall of Fame who coached for 25 years in the NFL — conducted the receiver workout, and Nick FlorenceRobert Griffin III‘s one-time backup and the Bears’ starter in 2012 — was throwing the ball to the receivers.

Ivory Wade, C (6-3 5/8, 313) — Wade — who was not at the combine — ran the 40 in 5.17 and 5.11 seconds. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.91 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.65 seconds. He also performed 26 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Wade made 43 starts on the Bears’ offensive line. His solid college career could earn him a look as a rookie free agent this summer.

Whitney Prevost (5-10 1/4, 178) — Prevost is a track and field athlete who got a look at receiver during Baylor’s pro day. Prevost is an athlete that a team might take a flyer on. He ran the 40 in 4.41 and 4.49 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot broad jump.

In five years as head coach, Art Briles has helped return the Baylor football program to national prominence. Baylor’s continued building of its football program includes a new, state-of-the-art, on-campus stadium that is scheduled to open for the 2014 season.
