He did the short shuttle in 4.74 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.66 seconds. He has 35 1/8-inch arms, which is long, and big 10 1/4-inch hands.
T.J. McDonald, FS (6-2 5/8, 213) — McDonald had a 10-foot-11 broad jump at USC’s pro day, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. T.J. is the son of Tim McDonald, who was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and a member of the San Francisco 49ers’ Super Bowl XXIX-winning team.
Nickell Robey, CB (5-7 5/8, 172) — Robey ran the 40 in 4.35 and 4.44 seconds. He had a 40 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-4 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.42 seconds. He didn’t do the three-cone drill at USC’s pro day (he did have an official time of 6.74 seconds at the combine). Robey had 11 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press.
Jawanza Starling, SS (6-0 3/4, 204) — Starling ran the 40 in 4.54 and 4.56 seconds, had a 36-inch vertical jump and he stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the three-cone drill and 60-yard shuttle).
Robert Woods, WR (6-0 1/2, 200) — Woods ran the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds, the three-cone drill in 6.83 seconds, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Woods had a great pro day workout.

Also in attendance were Chicago Bears general manager Phil Emery, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and St. Louis Rams general manager Les Snead, and Cleveland Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
