Representatives from 31 NFL teams -- including Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, and the directors of college scouting for the Kansas City Chiefs and New York Jets -- were present for Kentucky's pro day on Friday.

The workout was held indoors and run on FieldTurf. A total of 16 players worked out, including 12 from the 2015 Kentucky team and four from past classes.

Two players who worked out at Kentucky's pro day were also at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Safety A.J. Stamps -- 5-foot-11 1/8, 200 pounds -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 and 4.65 seconds, and had a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine.

Linebacker Josh Forrest -- 6-3, 245 -- ran the 40 in 4.78 and 4.85 seconds. He had a 4.22-second 20-yard short shuttle time and 7.48-second three-cone drill time.

There were two other prospects who worked out who could be seventh-round draft selections or free-agent pickups following the draft.

Defensive end Farrington Huguenin -- 6-3 3/4, 271 -- ran the 40 in 4.82 and 4.87 seconds, had a 34-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.37 seconds and the three-cone in 7.29 seconds. Huguenin also performed 25 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Defensive tackle Cory Johnson -- 6-2 1/2, 298 -- only was able to run the 40 once due to a muscle pull, but was timed in 5.00 seconds. He was unable to do any of the shuttle runs, but did have a 27 1/2-inch vertical and 9-5 broad jump.

The consensus of opinion among the scouts -- who were treated to a barbecue lunch -- was that Kentucky was a great place to start the pro day season.
