Representatives from all 32 NFL teams — including seven offensive line coaches and Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano – were present for USC’s pro day on March 12, when 17 Trojans players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.
Dion Bailey, SS (5-foot-11 5/8, 211 pounds) — Bailey had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He performed 14 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He then stood on his times in the runs from the NFL Scouting Combine (he was a top performer in his position group in the three-cone drill, short shuttle and 60-yard shuttle). Bailey is a quality player who had a solid field pro-day workout. He’ll probably be a third-day (Rounds 4-7) draft pick.
Xavier Grimble, TE (6-4 1/8, 261) — Grimble ran the 40-yard dash in 4.90 and 4.94 seconds. He had a 30 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.79 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.41 seconds. Grimble, who has 10-inch hands and 33-inch arms, did 16 lifts on the bench press. Grimble had a good pro day, catching the ball well after shaking off a couple drops early in the workout.
Devon Kennard, LB (6-2 7/8, 251) — Kennard, who has 9 7/8-inch hands and 33 5/8-inch arms, stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine and only did positional drills at the pro day. He moved well in drills, caught the ball well, and will probably be a top half of the third day of the draft selection.
Marqise Lee, WR (5-11 7/8, 199) — Lee did the three-cone drill in 6.96 seconds, had 11 reps on the bench press and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Lee, who has 9 1/2-inch hands, had a great pro-day workout. He’s very quick coming out of his breaks, and does everything he needs to be a great receiver.
Marcus Martin, C (6-3 1/8, 318) — Martin was at the combine, but unable to work out due to a left knee injury (only performing the bench press while in Indianapolis). At USC’s pro day, Martin ran the 40 in 5.33 and 5.22 seconds. He had a 22 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 4.93-second short shuttle time. He was not able to do the broad jump or three-cone drill due to the left knee issue. Martin, who has 33 3/8-inch arms, will probably be the second center selected in the 2014 NFL Draft, possibly sometime at the bottom of the third round or early fourth round.
Silas Redd, RB (5-9 1/8, 218) — Redd did not work out due to a right PCL injury. He is tentatively scheduled to work out for teams on April 22.
George Uko, DE (6-2 3/8, 294) — Uko had a short shuttle time of 4.57 seconds and did the three-cone in 7.47 seconds. Uko, who has 33 1/4-inch arms, did 22 lifts on the bench press and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. Uko had a very good workout and will probably be a late second-day draft pick.
Players who are potential rookie free-agent pickups also worked out at the pro day.
Kevin Graf, OT (6-5 3/4, 303) — Graf did the 40 in 5.11 and 5.03 seconds. He had a 29-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-11 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.77 seconds and the three-cone in 7.53 seconds. Graf, who has 33 1/2-inch arms, did 27 reps on the bench press.
Torin Harris, CB (5-11 5/8, 189) — Harris ran the 40 in 4.46 and 4.54 seconds (he rolled at the start of the first 40 run). He had a 41-inch vertical and 10-10 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.23 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.96 seconds. Harris, who has 32 3/8-inch arms, did 9 strength lifts. Harris did look like he had some quickness and displayed an ability to flip his hips during the workout. Because of the nature of his position, he is a likely priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
Morgan Breslin, LB (6-1 3/8, 240) — Breslin ran the 40 in 4.60 and 4.69 seconds. He strained his left groin on the second 40 attempt around the 20-yard mark. He had a 35 1/2-inch vertical and 9-6 broad jump. Breslin, who has 31 3/4-inch arms, did 26 reps on the bench press. Due to the groin strain, Breslin did not have a positional workout and will work out on April 22.
