Cornerback Marcus Alford -- 5-foot-9 1/4, 175 pounds -- had a 37-inch vertical jump and did 14 reps of 225 pounds. He didn't do anything else due to a pulled left hamstring.

Tight end Randall Rickert -- 6-2 1/4, 248 -- did 25 reps on the bench press, but did not do the runs or position drills due to left ankle ligament damage.
