Texas Tech pro day: WR has chance to be late-round draft pick

Print

Texas Tech's pro day last Friday attracted representatives from 24 NFL teams. Although none of the 12 players who worked out was at the NFL Scouting Combine, one could be a seventh-round pick in this year's draft: wide receiver Brad Marquez.


» 2015 pro day schedule, results and analysis


Marquez (5-foot-10 1/2, 196 pounds), a wide receiver, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.56 and 4.52 seconds. He had a 38-inch vertical and a 10-3 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.11 and the 3-cone drill in 7.00 seconds, and he had 17 bench-press reps.

There were no quarterbacks present at Texas Tech's pro day, so three scouts took turns throwing to Marquez in his drills. He looked good catching the ball and running routes despite working outdoors on a turf that was not in good condition.

Ken Williams (5-foot-9 7/8, 232 pounds) ran the 40 in 4.80 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 4.26 short shuttle and 7.03 3-cone drill. He had a 26-inch vertical and 9-1 broad jump, and he did 25 strength lifts. Williams, who played running back in 2013, was moved to linebacker at the beginning of last season but was moved back to running back later in the year. He had a nice workout as a running back at his pro day, and caught the ball well out of the backfield. He's likely to be a free agent.

One other potential free agent was Alcus Fort, (6-foot-4 5/8, 296 pounds), an offensive lineman. He ran the 40 in 5.47 and 5.45 seconds. He had a 26-inch vertical and 8-7 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.90 and the 3-cone drill in 7.92. And he had 17 strength lifts.
