Chandler Worthy of Troy might be small but delivers in speed

Representatives from 13 NFL teams attended Troy's pro day Monday, when 18 total players -- including a number from area small schools -- worked out outdoors on FieldTurf in 60-degree, drizzly conditions.



One prospect in attendance ran extremely fast.

Troy wide receiver Chandler Worthy (5-foot-7 7/8, 176 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 and 4.39 seconds. He also posted a 20-yard short shuttle time of 4.17 seconds and a three-cone drill time of 7.08 seconds. He had a 39 1/2-inch vertical jump and an 11-foot-5 broad jump. He performed 17 strength lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Worthy had a good workout, but needs to improve his ball-catching skills (he has small, 8 1/2-inch hands). They weren't able to do punt-catching drills to see if Worthy could do that. Worthy is a small player who can run really fast, and is worth bringing into camp for a look as a rookie free agent.

Wide receiver Taylor Belsterling (6-4 3/8, 204) of Division III Huntingdon College ran the 40-yard dash in 4.54 and 4.64 seconds. He had a 36-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-3 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.15 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.12 seconds. Belsterling -- who has 9 3/4-inch hands -- is a big target, but inexperienced. Belsterling made the 50-mile drive from Montgomery, Ala. to Troy, Ala. to participate in the pro day. He is also worthy of a training camp look as a rookie free agent.
