Twelve teams were present Tuesday at Alabama State’s pro day, where Isaiah Crowell was the top name among 11 players who worked out. The players performed their jumps and shuttle runs indoors, but the rest of the workouts took place outdoors, where it was rainy and cold.
Crowell measured in at 5-10 3/8, which was quite a bit different from his 5-11 measurement at the combine. He was measured twice just to make sure it was correct. He stayed on his 40 time from the combine (4.57), but posted a 4.51 short shuttle and a 7.25 cone drill. I thought he had a good workout. He’s had some baggage from before his transfer from Georgia, but I think he’ll be a sixth- or seventh-round draft pick.
Jamel Johnson, WR: Johnson (6-2, 225 pounds) didn’t have a great workout, but much of the reason might have been because they didn’t have a quarterback there to throw passes to him; they had a few coaches do it. So Johnson didn’t really have an opportunity to show what he could do. Johnson ran the 40 in 4.59 and 4.58 seconds. He had a 38-inch vertical and a 10-foot, 3-inch broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.41 and the 3-cone drill in 7.21. He’s another guy that’s a priority free agent.
