While Myles Garrett was solidifying his status as the top prospect in the 2017 NFL Draft, his ex-teammates were trying to leave their own mark at Texas A&M pro day on Thursday.

All 32 teams sent representatives, who were treated to a big breakfast spread and a burrito lunch. They watched Garrett and 14 other former Aggies players work out indoors on FieldTurf. Three team general managers were on hand (Bears, 49ers and Dolphins), as were two NFL offensive line coaches.

Here are the results for the nine players from A&M who were invited to the combine:

» OL Jermaine Eluemunor (6-3 7/8, 334) had a 28.5-inch vertical jump, an 8-foot-7 broad jump, a 4.85-second short shuttle, and a 7.63-second three-cone drill. I was told by a scout who was there that Eluemunor's workout was exceptional.

» Safety Justin Evans (5-11 5/8, 195) ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.64 seconds, had a 41.5-inch vertical, a 10-9 broad jump, and stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. He has excellent ball skills, and uses his experience as a center fielder in baseball to help him high-point the ball.

» DE Myles Garrett (6-4 1/4, 268) ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.62, and had a 10-6 broad jump. He stood on the rest of his numbers.

» OT Avery Gennesy (6-3 1/4, 314) ran the 40 in 5.40 and 5.52 seconds, had a 25-inch vertical, a 7-11 broad jump, a 4.88-second short shuttle, a 7.76 three-cone, and went through position drills.

» DE Daeshon Hall (6-5 5/8, 264) only did the broad jump (9-11), and stood on the rest of his combine numbers. He looked really good with his hand down in position drills, but not as good dropping into coverage.

» QB Trevor Knight (6-1 1/8, 220) stood on all of his combine numbers, but did go through a scripted workout.

» WR Speedy Noil (5-10 3/4, 202) ran the 40 in 4.45 and 4.47 seconds, and stood on the rest of his combine numbers. He had an outstanding workout.

» WR Josh Reynolds (6-2 7/8, 193) ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.54 seconds, and had a 36-inch vertical. He stood on the rest of his numbers from the combine. He had a very strong start to his position drills, but suffered from a few drops at the back end.

» Ricky Seals-Jones (6-4 5/8, 246) stood on all of his combine numbers with the exception of the vertical (31 inches) and broad (10-1) jumps. He had an outstanding workout at tight end. He could be a good one in a few years when he learns the position.

» WR James Quick (6-0, 190) ran the 40 in a not-so-quick 4.62 and 4.68 seconds, had a 4.51-second short shuttle, a 7.14-second three-cone, and stood on the rest of his combine numbers.

» RB Jeremy McNichols didn't participate on the pro day after undergoing surgery to repair a shoulder labrum tear on March 11. He had a solid showing at the combine.
