Two Utah schools held workouts on the final day of college pro days on Wednesday.

Utah State

There were representatives from 24 NFL teams -- including linebackers coaches from the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets -- were on hand for Utah State's pro day.

Check out the top prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft in action at their on-campus pro days.

Linebacker Kyler Fackrell -- 6-foot-5 1/8, 188 pounds -- did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.31 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.24 seconds. He also performed 16 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Fackrell is one of the most discussed prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft. There are a wide variety of opinions about where he rates in this draft class. Fackrell had been rated No. 45 in Daniel Jeremiah's top 50 prospects list, but fell out in his latest rankings.

They tried to tire Fackrell out during the positional drills, but he's in really good shape. Fackrell's best position in the NFL is outside linebacker for a team that runs a 3-4 base defense.

Wide receiver Hunter Sharp -- 5-11 1/2, 195 -- ran the 40-yard dash in 4.51 and 4.57 seconds. He did the short shuttle in 4.14 seconds and the three-cone in 7.08 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-5 broad jump.

Wide receiver Devonte Robinson -- 6-1 1/8, 199 -- ran the 40 in 4.33 and 4.31 seconds. He had a 38-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.36 seconds and the three-cone in 7.31 seconds. Robinson had some drops in his positional workout. He's more of a straight-line player, and because of his very good speed he will get an opportunity to go into an NFL camp.

Quarterback Chuckie Keeton -- 6-1, 206 -- ran the 40 in 4.65 and 4.68 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical and 9-foot broad jump. He did the short shuttle 4.43 seconds and the three-cone in 7.21 seconds. Keeton was recruited as an athlete to Utah State, and was also a very good baseball player. He was injury-prone during his time at Utah State, but could still get a look by an NFL team as a camp arm.

Utah State coach Matt Wells is spoken extremely highly of, and could be a prime candidate for a spot at a major college program if one should open up.

Weber State

Representatives from eight NFL teams were present for Weber State's pro day Wednesday.

There was one prospect who had a really good workout and could be a priority free-agent pickup.

Cornerback Devonte Johnson -- 5-10 3/4, 180 -- ran the 40 in 4.54 and 4.55 seconds. He had a 41-inch vertical and 11-foot broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.26 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.96 seconds. He performed 15 reps on the bench press.

The workout was held indoors and run on FieldTurf.
