Representatives from six NFL teams attended Ball State's pro day on April 1, when five Ball State players and five more players from area small schools worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
Cornerback Eric Patterson (5-9 1/4, 197) ran the 40 in 4.5 and 4.53 seconds. He had a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.38 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.01 seconds. He performed 18 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Patterson had a good pro day workout, which might have earned him priority free-agent status following the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft.
