Representatives from 29 NFL teams — including Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin — were present for Penn State’s pro day on Tuesday, when a workout was held indoors on FieldTurf.
Allen Robinson, WR (6-foot 7/8, 207) — Robinson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 and 4.50 seconds (improving on the 4.60 40 from the NFL Scouting Combine). He had a 42-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-11 broad jump. He also did the three-cone drill in 6.54 seconds. Robinson had a great pro-day workout. He looked very good running routes. Robinson’s performance really helped his draft stock a lot. It will push him into a crowded group of talented wide receivers in the 2014 NFL Draft class; not the upper echelon of prospects (a group that would include the likes of Sammy Watkins of Clemson and Mike Evans of Texas A&M), but the next tier of talent.
John Urschel, G (6-3 1/4, 312) — Urschel ran the 40 in 5.25 and 5.22 seconds, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Urschel had a good positional workout, moving good in the on-field drills, showing strength and that he is a knee-bender.
DaQuan Jones, DT (6-4, 324) — Jones did a 4.65-second short shuttle and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Jones is a big guy who moved well in the on-field drills. Going into the 2013 season, Jones was my top-rated senior defensive tackle.
Glenn Carson, LB (6-2 5/8, 238) — Carson ran the 40 in 4.75 seconds on both attempts. He had a short shuttle time of 4.30 seconds and did the three-cone in 7.30 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and a 9-10 broad jump. He performed 32 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Carson is a potential seventh-round draft choice or a free-agent pickup for a team following the draft.
