Running back Zach Zenner (5-foot-11 3/8, 222 pounds) stood on most of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine, where he was among the top performers in his position group in the vertical jump. However, he did re-run the 20-yard short shuttle (4.3 seconds) and three-cone drill (6.88 seconds) at SDSU's pro day. Zenner showed good quickness and effort during his positional drills, catching the ball well out of the backfield. Zenner could be a late-round selection in the 2015 NFL Draft, but possibly a priority free-agent pickup due to depth of this year's running back class.

Defensive end Jack Sherlock (6-3 3/8, 243) ran the 40 in 4.77 and 4.72 seconds. He had a 9-foot-5 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.7 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.32 seconds. He chose not to do the bench press or vertical jump. Sherlock worked out at linebacker and looked good in the positional drills. He's a rookie free-agent possibility.
