Walt Powell of Murray State holds own in strong WR class

Representatives from seven NFL teams — including Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver coach James Urban — were present Tuesday for Murray State’s pro day, where a promising wide receiver prospect worked out outdoors.

Walt Powell, WR (5-foot-11 5/8, 189 pounds) — Powell — who was at the NFL Scouting Combine — ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds against the wind and 4.46 seconds with the wind. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.37 seconds. Powell had an excellent pro day workout. He caught everything thrown to him and made nice adjustments on the ball. He looks like a sixth- or seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which is saying something considering the depth of the wide receiver group in this year’s draft.
