Representatives from 15 NFL teams were on hand for South Florida's pro day on Thursday, when 23 players worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.

There were 10-15 mile-per-hour wind gusts, so the 40-yard dash was run once with the wind and once against the wind.

Linebacker Reshard Cliett (6-foot-2 1/8, 222 pounds) ran the 40 in 4.4 seconds with the wind and 4.5 against the wind. He had a 38 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-4 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.53 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.2 seconds. Cliett -- who has 33 3/4-inch arms -- performed 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Cliett is a weakside -- WILL -- linebacker who had a very nice pro day workout. He is a priority free-agent possibility following the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft, but if he were bigger and heavier would probably be a draft selection.

Wide receiver Andre Davis (6-0 7/8, 211) ran the 40 in 4.6 seconds with the wind and 4.66 seconds against the wind. He had a 32 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. Davis ran the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.33 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.06 seconds. He didn't work out on the bench press. Davis caught the ball well in his positional workout, and looks like a priority free-agent pickup for a team following the draft.

Tight end Mike McFarland (6-6 1/2, 252) ran the 40 in 4.73 seconds with the wind and 4.85 seconds against the wind. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-8 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.4 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds. McFarland performed 18 reps on the bench press. He had a good workout, impressing everybody with his athleticism, and how well he ran and caught the ball. McFarland could be a late-round selection because of the shortage of tight ends in this year's draft class, or be a priority free-agent for a team following the draft.
