» 2015 pro days schedule, results and analysis


Sixteen players worked out at the pro day.

Defensive lineman Jordan Phillips (6-foot-5 3/8, 327 pounds) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He had a good workout in the positional drills and is a very good athlete.

Wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham (6-5 1/4, 236) stood on his 40-yard dash time from the combine (4.49 seconds). He had a 33-inch vertical and a 10-foot broad jump. He completed the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds. Green-Beckham had a very good workout. He has good ball skills, and for a guy as tall as he is, he runs very good routes. He has a chance to be picked at the end of the first round or top of the second.

Cornerback Julian Wilson (6-2 1/8, 201) ran the 40 in 4.47 and 4.48 seconds. He had 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Wilson probably will be a seventh-round pick or priority free agent.

Offensive lineman Adam Shead (6-4, 331) participated at the combine. He ran a short shuttle of 5.00 seconds at the pro day and his arms measured 33 5/8 inches. He'll probably be a seventh-round pick or priority free agent.

Offensive lineman Daryl Williams (6-5 1/8, 325) stood on his combine results except for the three-cone drill, which he completed in 8.18 seconds. He has 34 7/8-inch arms. Williams had a very good workout. He's very strong, but he probably won't be a left tackle in the NFL.

Offensive lineman Tyrus Thompson (6-5, 324) stood on his vertical and broad jump numbers from the combine. He ran the 40 in 5.39 and 5.30 seconds. He also stood on his short-shuttle time from the combine. Thompson finished the three-cone drill in 7.96 seconds and has 34 7/8-inch arms.

Fullback Aaron Ripkowski (6-1 3/8, 238) was not invited to the combine. He ran the 40 in 4.71 and 4.69 seconds. He had a 33-inch vertical and a 9-5 broad jump. He completed the short shuttle in 4.33 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.59 seconds. Ripkowski was unable to bench press because he strained his shoulder two days prior to the pro day. He will be a priority free agent this year.

Defensive end Chuka Ndulue (6-1 3/4, 281), who also wasn't invited to the combine, ran the 40 in 5.15 and 5.23 seconds. He had a 28-inch vertical and an 8-11 broad jump. Ndulue finished the short shuttle in 4.55 seconds and recorded a time of 7.96 seconds in the three-cone drill. He performed 28 strength lifts.

Smitty, who's in charge of strength and conditioning at Oklahoma, takes a great deal of pride in running the pro day as well as anybody. Not only is it a well-organized event, but they also have a lot of food for consumption prior to the workouts and after the workouts. He did a first-class job.
