Aaron Donald validates dominant combine workout

Representatives from 30 NFL teams — including new Houston Texans coach Bill O’Brien, as well as Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly and offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur — gathered at Pittsburgh’s pro day on March 3, where 10 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.

Fast-rising 2014 NFL Draft prospect Aaron Donald (6-foot-1, 287 pounds) stood on his impressive numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, where he ran a 4.68-second 40-yard dash, had 35 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press, registered a 32-inch vertical jump and 116-inch broad jump, and drew rave reviews for his performance.

Donald only went through field drills and looked very good, showing fluid movement and substantiating the performance he displayed at the combine.

There were two other players from Pitt at the combine, and here is how their pro days transpired:

Tom Savage, QB (6-4, 225) — Savage stood on his numbers from the combine, and only threw at the pro day. Savage displayed velocity on his throws, which were all to receiver Devin Street.

Street, WR (6-3 1/8, 195) — Street ran the 40-yard dash again, and improved on the 4.55 time recorded in Indianapolis. Street ran the 40 in 4.50 and 4.48 seconds at Pittsburgh’s pro day, and also did the 60-yard long shuttle in 11.25 seconds.
