Representatives from 18 NFL teams were on hand to watch five players work out at Illinois’ pro day, which was held indoors on FieldTurf.
Jonathan Brown, OLB (6-foot 5/8, 234 pounds) — Brown — who was at the NFL Scouting Combine — ran the 40-yard dash in 4.87 and 4.85 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.59 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.31 seconds. He also recorded 18 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Brown is a likely seventh-round draft choice or free-agent pickup following the 2014 NFL Draft.
Ryan Lankford, WR (5-11 1/2, 163) — Langford ran the 40 in 4.39 and 4.41 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 10-7 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.24 seconds and the three-cone in 6.83 seconds. He is a small player (the most he’s ever weighed is 175) with a lot of speed. He displayed average hands for a receiver during the pro day workout. However, that speed could intrigue an NFL team enough to bring him into training camp.
