Representatives from four NFL teams were present for New Mexico State's pro day on Tuesday.

» 2015 pro days schedule and results

A total of 11 players worked out, but there is one prospect who is a late-round 2015 NFL Draft possibility or priority free-agent pickup for a team following the draft.

Center Valerian Ume-Ezeoke (6-foot-2, 305 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 5.45 and 5.44 seconds. He had a 30-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-10 broad jump. He had a 20-yard short shuttle time of 4.82 seconds and a three-cone drill time of 8.15 seconds. Ume-Ezeoke -- who has 32 1/8-inch arms -- performed 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Ume-Ezeoke had what was described as "an awesome" workout, especially when you take the weather conditions (52 degrees and raining) into consideration. He had gone into his pro day with some concern about his weight.
