Representatives from all 32 NFL teams -- including a defensive line coach from the Seattle Seahawks -- were on hand for Oregon's pro day on Thursday.

The workout was held indoors and run on FieldTurf. There were 11 prospects who participated in the pro day.

Quarterback Vernon Adams -- 5-foot-10 7/8, 198 pounds -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.86 seconds on both attempts. He also had a 28-inch vertical jump. Adams throws the ball really well; he can really spin it. However, he's on the shorter side for a quarterback. So, he's probably a CFL-level player.

Offensive tackle Tyler Johnstone -- stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Johnstone had a very good pro day workout, and it is believed that he can play both left and right tackle in the pros.

Wide receiver Bralon Addison -- 5-9 1/2, 197 -- ran the 40 in 4.72 and 4.73 seconds. He had a 20-yard short shuttle time of 4.23 seconds and a three-cone drill time of 6.85 seconds.

Wide receiver Byron Marshall -- 5-9 3/8, 208 -- ran the 40 in 4.58 and 4.56 seconds. He had a three-cone time of 7.0 seconds and short shuttle time of 4.23 seconds. He had a 29 1/2-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-3 broad jump. Marshall worked out as both a running back and wide receiver, and he looked good catching the ball.

Defensive end DeForest Buckner -- 6-7 1/4, 286 -- performed 21 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He went through his positional workout extremely well.

Linebacker Joe Walker -- 6-2 3/8, 236 -- was not at the combine. He ran the 40 in 4.56 and 4.58 seconds. He had a 37 1/2 vertical and 10-foot-4 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.31 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.81 seconds. He performed 23 reps on the bench. Walker could be a sixth- or seventh-round selection in the draft.
