Fourteen teams in all were on hand to watch 12 players work out indoors on artificial turf. The players worked out in spikes, which led to faster times than usual. Zach Kerr, DL: Kerr had a good workout on his pro day and stood on his numbers from the combine. He was also measured and weighed – 6-foot-1 5/8, 323 pounds, with 32 3/4-inch arms. Travis Hawkins, CB: Hawkins (5-foot-9 5/8, 192 pounds) ran the 40 twice, posting times of 4.37 and 4.44 seconds, but because they ran in spikes, those times would probably convert to 4.41 and 4.48 seconds.
