Potential late-round pick stands out at Tarleton State’s pro day

Potential late-round 2014 NFL Draft selection or priority free-agent pickup following the draft Dashaun Phillips worked out in front of representatives from eight NFL teams at Tarleton State’s pro day on March 18.

The workout was held indoors and run on FieldTurf.

Phillips, a 5-foot-11 3/8, 182-pound cornerback, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 and 4.51 seconds. He had a 39-inch vertical jump and 11-foot-3 broad jump. His 20-yard short shuttle (3.97 seconds) and three-cone drill (6.65) times were great. He also posted 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Phillips had a really good positional workout.

Phillips only posted one interception in each of the past two seasons, but did lead his team and the Lone Star Conference in picks in 2011 with seven and had a team-high three interceptions in 2010.

Tarleton State had a player selected in the 2013 NFL Draft, when the New Orleans Saints picked linebacker Rufus Johnson in the sixth round.
