There were 13 Southern Illinois players and five more from various area small colleges who worked out outdoors on FieldTurf.
Pruitt had an extraordinarily good pro-day positional workout, which was witnessed by Bengals tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes. Pruitt is very similar to Charles Clay -- who recently agreed to a five-year, $38 million offer from the Buffalo Bills -- when he was coming out of Tulsa. Pruitt is a good player who's moving up on many draft boards.
Running back Malcolm Agnew (5-9 1/2, 202) ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.6 seconds. He had an amazing 20-yard short shuttle time of 3.9 seconds. Agnew did the three-cone drill in 6.75 seconds.
Agnew -- who also worked out at Northwestern's pro day earlier this month -- had a good positional workout at SIU's pro day. He showed good quickness and caught the ball well coming out of the backfield. Only on one occasion did he have a double catch. Agnew -- who is the son of 11-year NFL veteran Ray Agnew -- got himself into potentially being a low-round choice in the 2015 NFL Draft or a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
Former Southern Illinois quarterback Kory Faulkner (6-3 1/2, 232) -- who was in camp with the San Francisco 49ers but did not make the team -- was on hand to throw passes to the prospects and looked really good throwing the football.
