LSU running back Spencer Ware worked out on campus on Friday, April 29. Ware ran indoors and on FieldTurf, and wasn’t measured at the workout. He did weigh in at 229 pounds, though. As for his numbers, he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.62 and 4.63 seconds. He posted a 34 inch vertical leap and a 10-foot-1/2 inch broad jump. In the short shuttle drill, he clocked in at 4.35 seconds, and completed the three-cone drill in 7.07 seconds. He opted not to lift, as he already had at LSU’s pro day. Ware had a good workout on the day, and caught the ball exceptionally well.

Anyway, it gave me a chance to see the Cowboys up close, learn how they tick, see how they draft, and gain an understanding for why they did what they did.
