Representatives from 21 NFL teams were present for Louisiana-Lafayette’s pro day on Monday for a workout that was held in ideal conditions indoors on FieldTurf.
Darryl Surgent, WR (5-foot-10, 190 pounds) — Surgent ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 and 4.56 seconds. He had a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and 11-foot-1 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.43 seconds. He performed eight lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Surgent is a slot receiver who is also a good return specialist (he had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown as well as a punt return for a touchdown for the Ragin’ Cajuns in 2013). Surgent looked good in the pro-day drills; he’s more quick than fast. Due to the tremendous amount of talent at wide receiver in the 2014 NFL Draft, Surgent is probably a priority free-agent pickup for a team following the draft.
Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth and his staff did a real nice job of setting up the pro day.
