Representatives from 27 NFL teams -- including a special teams coach from the Dallas Cowboys -- were on hand for Duke's pro day on March 23, when 11 players worked out indoors and on FieldTurf.

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

Safety Jeremy Cash -- 6-foot-0 1/2, 205 pounds -- did 13 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Due to a hamstring strain, he was unable to run at the pro day and will run again on April 13.

Punter Will Monday -- 6-3 3/8, 216 -- had good hangtime, and showed good directional kicking at the pro day.

Center Matt Skura -- 6-3 3/4, 304 -- had a real good pro-day workout. He ran the 40-yard dash in 5.29 and 5.26 seconds. He had a 26 1/2-inch vertical and 8-foot-9 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.57 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.83 seconds. He performed 30 strength lifts.

Three additional prospects with a chance to be rookie free-agent pickups also worked out at the pro day, including the son of former New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey.

Wide receiver Max McCaffrey -- 6-2, 196 -- ran the 40 in 4.47 and 4.43 seconds. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.15 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.09 seconds. He performed nine reps on the bench. McCaffrey was outstanding in the testing and worked out well in the positional drills, but not as well as the testing numbers would indicate.

Tight end Braxton Deaver -- 6-4 3/4, 246 -- ran the 40 in 4.82 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.44 seconds and the three-cone in 7.5 seconds. He had 26 strength lifts. Deaver's biggest problem is a history of injuries (he missed the entire 2014 season due to a right ACL injury).

Outside linebacker Dwayne Norman -- 6-0 1/8, 230 -- ran the 40 in 4.65 and 4.61 seconds. He had a 34 1/2-inch vertical and 10-foot-1 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.43 seconds and the three-cone in 7.46 seconds. He performed 19 lifts on the bench press. Norman will be a very good special teams player.
