Representatives from 20 NFL teams -- including Cleveland Browns executive vice president of football operations Sashi Brown, an Arizona Cardinals director of scouting, and defensive backs coaches from the Browns, Dallas Cowboys and Tennessee Titans -- were on hand for Maryland's pro day on March 30.

A total of 10 Maryland players, plus one more from St. Francis (Pa.), worked out outdoors on FieldTurf inside Maryland Stadium.

Kicker Brad Craddock -- 6-foot-0 1/8, 187 pounds -- had a good day kicking the ball, just missing one field goal from 50 yards out. Craddock won the Lou Groza Award in 2014, but did not have as good of a year in 2015.

Cornerback Sean Davis -- 6-1 1/8, 202 -- is the big corner which teams look for. He has quick feet and can run. He played safety in 2014, but moved to corner in 2015. Some think that safety is a better position for Davis than cornerback.

Defensive tackle Quinton Jefferson -- 6-4, 290 -- has had some knee problems, but did a positional workout despite not being at 100 percent.

Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue -- 6-2, 252 -- is a real quick guy, and looked good in the positional drills.

Running back Brandon Ross -- 5-10, 210 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds with the wind and 4.7 seconds against the wind. He had a 37 1/2-inch vertical and 9-foot-10 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.28 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.75 seconds. He did 10 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. He caught the ball really well in his positional workout.

Safety A.J. Hendy -- 6-0, 208 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds with the wind and 4.6 seconds against the wind. He had a 40 1/2-inch vertical and 11-foot-3 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.16 seconds and the three-cone in 7.03 seconds. He had 16 reps on the bench. Hendy is the reason why Davis was moved to corner for the 2015 season.
