Representatives from all 32 NFL teams -- including the general managers from the Los Angeles Rams, Minnesota Vikings, New York Giants and Tennessee Titans, and wide receivers coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions and San Diego Chargers -- were present for Ole Miss' pro day on Monday. The Titans, in particular, had a huge contingent of dignitaries on hand for the event.

Defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche -- 6-foot-4, 296 pounds -- was described as having a special and rare pro-day workout. He is very quick and very strong, and moves extremely well.

Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell -- 6-2 1/4, 217 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.65 and 4.63 seconds. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.29 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.05 seconds. He had a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump. Treadwell also had an outstanding pro-day workout. He's big, strong and quick. He had a couple of drops in his positional workout, but still has great hands.

Offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil -- 6-5 1/2, 314 -- has yet to record times in the 40, short shuttle and three-cone drill. He opted out of the runs at the pro day due to a strain. He had a 28 1/2 vertical jump and 9-foot-3 broad jump. He also performed 34 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Tunsil was described as having an outstanding positional workout. He was put through a lot of drills by the coaches in attendance.

Offensive tackle Fahn Cooper -- 6-4, 303 -- had a 9-foot-8 broad jump and did 24 reps on the bench press. Cooper looked very good in the positional drills.

Wide receiver Cody Core -- 6-2 7/8, 206 -- did the short shuttle in 4.4 seconds and the three-cone in 6.75 seconds. He had a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-8 broad jump. He is described as being very smooth and long. He also catches the ball well.

Linebacker C.J. Johnson -- 6-1 3/4, 238 -- had a 27-inch vertical and 8-foot-6 broad jump. Johnson put the bar up 12 times on the bench press. He worked out as both a linebacker and defensive lineman at the pro day.

Defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton -- 6-5 1/2, 314 -- had a right hamstring issue so he did not do the 40. He posted a 4.8-second short shuttle time and a 7.9-second three-come time. He had a 26 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-10 broad jump. He did 29 reps on the bench press. Hamilton had a very good pro-day workout, which might make him a low-round draft selection or a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
