SMU's Shakiel Randolph works out LB, CB and S at pro day

Representatives from 20 NFL teams were on hand for SMU's pro day on Wednesday, when 13 players worked out indoors at the facility for Highland Park High School in Dallas.

Take a look at the top 10 players from SMU to play in the NFL.

Highland Park H.S. is where the Green Bay Packers practiced when weather forced their workouts indoors in the week leading up to the team's win in Super Bowl XLV.

The SMU football program is one on the rise, and could be a team to be reckoned with in a few years. First-year coach Chad Morris is doing a fabulous job of recruiting. Morris went out of his way to make sure the scouts on hand were treated with royalty. His staff was present to talk to scouts about not just SMU's draft prospects, but also those from Clemson, where Morris and much of his staff came from before coaching at SMU.

The Mustangs had one prospect who could be a priority free-agent pickup for an NFL team work out at the pro day.

Defensive back Shakiel Randolph -- 6-3 1/2, 213 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 and 4.59 seconds (it should be noted that the surface was a soft FieldTurf surface and not particularly fast). He had a 42-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-10 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.45 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.13 seconds. He also did 16 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Randolph worked out at linebacker, cornerback and safety at the pro day, but his best position is probably safety. Randolph was really good catching the ball in his positional drills.
