Representatives from 25 NFL teams — including Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly, and wide receivers coaches from the Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers, St. Louis Rams and Washington Redskins — attended a workout Friday for Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer that lasted just 16 minutes. Latimer caught 18 passes in the workout, but had a couple of drops. Due to a broken bone in his foot, Latimer was only able to run the 40-yard dash at Indiana’s pro day on March 26. He did manage to post a time of 4.44 seconds. With less than two weeks to go until the 2014 NFL Draft, Latimer is gaining momentum as one of the event’s fastest-rising prospects. Latimer was one […]

The defensive line coaches from the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks were in attendance for Delaware’s pro day March 18. 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. He […]

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh were among those from NFL teams on hand for Virginia Tech’s pro day Wednesday.
