Dale Murphy’s son gets worked out by Bengals TE coach

Representatives from 28 NFL teams — including Cincinnati Bengals tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes — were present Wednesday for Utah’s pro day, which was held indoors on FieldTurf.

Anthony Denham, TE (6-foot-4 1/8, 237 pounds) — Denham — who was at the NFL Scouting Combine — had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-5 broad jump. Denham — a former wide receiver — was put through the position drills by Hayes.

Jake Murphy, TE (6-3 1/8, 213) — Murphy — who was at the combine — just did position drills led by Hayes, and looked exceptional catching the ball. Murphy is the son of former major league baseball player Dale Murphy, who was a two-time National League MVP and seven-time all-star.

Keith McGill, CB (6-3 1/8, 213) — McGill — who was at the combine — ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 seconds on both attempts. He had a 35 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-6 broad jump. McGill is probably going to get drafted toward the end of the second day of the draft, somewhere between pick Nos. 70-96 in the third round.

Tenny Palepoi, DT (6-1 1/4, 295) — Palepoi — who was at the combine — just did the short shuttle (4.95 seconds) and then did position drills.

Trevor Reilly, OLB (6-4 1/2, 244) — Reilly was at the combine, but only able to do the bench press after having minor knee surgery in January. At Utah’s pro day, he was only able to run straight ahead without cutting. So, he did the 40 in 4.69 and 4.73 seconds. Reilly is a pretty good football player, and if his leg is fine, he will be an early second-day draft pick (second round).

Karl Williams, FB (5-11 3/4, 244) — Williams ran the 40 in 4.54 and 4.52 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and 9-11 broad jump. He had a short shuttle time of 4.30 seconds and a three-cone time of 7.03 seconds. He performed 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Williams looked really great catching the football, and he appears to have risen from nowhere to be a possible seventh-round pick or priority free-agent pickup following the 2014 NFL Draft.
