Free safety Detrick Bonner (6-foot, 207 pounds) did not workout since he had surgery to repair Jones fractures in both feeet on March 12.

Offensive tackle Laurence Gibson (6-5 3/8, 312) stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, where he was the top performer among offensive linemen in the vertical jump and broad jump, and was among the top performers in his position group in the 40-yard dash and 20-yard short shuttle. Gibson -- who has 35 1/8-inch arms -- moves around really well. He's a solid athlete who looked good in the positional drills.

Strong safety Kyshoen Jarrett (5-10 1/8, 199) ran the 40 in 4.53 and 4.48 seconds. He had a short shuttle time of 4.23 seconds and a three-cone time of 7.06 seconds. Jarrett did a good job of catching the ball on defense. He's described as one of those guys who's not real big, but will be hard to run off of your team come camp time.

Linebacker Chase Williams (6-1 1/4, 231) -- the son of Rams defensive coordinator Gregg Williams -- ran the 40 in 4.83 and 4.82 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and 9-foot broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.47 seconds and had a three-cone time of 7.23 seconds. He performed 22 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Williams is a priority free-agent pickup possibility for a team following the 2015 NFL Draft. He looked really good in the positional drills. He caught the ball well. When you watch tape of Williams, you can see that he plays hard on every down. He could find a role as a special teams player.
