A total of 13 players worked out indoors on a brand-new FieldTurf surface.

Bengals defensive backs coach Mark Carrier attended Kansas State’s pro day March 11, when 10 teams were present to watch 23 players work out: 20 from Kansas State and three from smaller schools in the area. Carrier was here to see Ty Zimmerman, a defensive back who was not at the combine. Zimmerman is recovering from right labrum surgery and will work out April 28 at Kansas State. Marcus Heit, LS: Heit (6-foot-3, 252 pounds) ran 4.92 and 4.94 in the 40. He posted a 31-inch vertical and a 9-8 broad jump. His arms measured 31 1/4 inches, and he had 11 reps in the bench press. He didn’t do the shuttle and three-cone drill. Everyone nowadays, it seems, is […]
Wide receiver John Brown drew representatives from seven NFL teams — including a wide receivers coach from the New Orleans Saints, and special teams coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts — to Pittsburg State’s pro day in Pittsburg, Kansas, on March 18. The workout was held outdoors and run on FieldTurf. The weather conditions featured 20-30 mile per hour wind gusts, 50-degree temperatures and sunshine. Brown (5-foot-10, 172 pounds) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, which were impressive (he posted the second-fastest 40-yard dash time — 4.34 seconds — among wide receivers). Brown — who has 8 1/8-inch hands — did do eight lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press at Pittsburg State’s pro […]
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 […]
Representatives from seven NFL teams — including Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver coach James Urban — were present Tuesday for Murray State’s pro day, where a promising wide receiver prospect worked out outdoors. Walt Powell, WR (5-foot-11 5/8, 189 pounds) — Powell — who was at the NFL Scouting Combine — ran the 40-yard dash in 4.59 seconds against the wind and 4.46 seconds with the wind. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.37 seconds. Powell had an excellent pro day workout. He caught everything thrown to him and made nice adjustments on the ball. He looks like a sixth- or seventh-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, which is […]
Cincinnati Bengals quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese was among the representatives from nine NFL teams that attended North Dakota State’s pro day Wednesday. A total of 14 players worked out — 11 from North Dakota State and three from North Dakota — indoors on FieldTurf. Billy Turner, OT, North Dakota State: Turner (6-foot 5 3/8, 314 pounds), who was at the combine, has 33 5/8-inch arms and 10-inch hands. He did position drills only Wednesday. He has a visit scheduled with the Dallas Cowboys, and I think he’s probably a second-day draft pick down near the end of the third round. Marcus Williams, CB, North Dakota State: Williams (5-11, 196 pounds) worked out on March 3 at Minnesota but worked out […]

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams — including the head coaches of the Cincinnati Bengals (Marvin Lewis), Minnesota Vikings (Mike Zimmer) and New Orleans Saints (Sean Payton); general managers from the New York Giants (Jerry Reese), Vikings (Rick Spielman) and Saints (Mickey Loomis); as well as numerous coordinators and assistant/position coaches — were present at Alabama’s pro day on Wednesday. A total of eight players worked out indoors on FieldTurf. AJ McCarron, QB (6-foot-3 3/8, 222 pounds) — McCarron did an excellent job throwing the ball to receivers Kevin Norwood and Kenny Bell. There isn’t a consensus on McCarron, with some people really liking the two-time national title-winning quarterback and others not intrigued with the decorated collegiate passer. At Alabama’s […]

Representatives from 13 NFL teams — including Cincinnati Bengals defensive line coach Jay Hayes — were on hand to watch 14 South Florida players work out outdoors on grass Monday. Two defensive ends from the school appear to be third-day selection possibilities in the 2014 NFL Draft. Aaron Lynch (6-foot-5, 252 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.69 seconds on each attempt. He had a real good 10-yard time of 1.52 seconds, which is an indication that he can be a good pass rusher at the next level. Lynch had a 29-inch vertical jump and a 9-foot-9 broad jump. He had a short shuttle time of 4.61 seconds and a three-cone drill time of 7.48 seconds. Lynch kept his bench […]
