Marshall pro day: Under-the-radar CB catches scouts' attention

Twelve players worked out at Marshall's pro day, which brought out 11 NFL teams, and two of the prospects posted some eye-catching numbers.

Running indoors on Field Turf, cornerback Darryl Roberts clocked times of 4.39 and 4.36 in the 40-yard dash, including a 1.48 10-yard split. He also had a 39-inch vertical and 11-1 broad jump. He ran a 4.08 short shuttle and 6.66 3-cone drill, and had 23 bench-press reps. He had an excellent workout, and a number of teams will be bringing him in for interviews after his pro day. He could be a sixth- or seventh-round pick.

James Rouse (6-foot-4 5/8, 277 pounds) played defensive tackle in college but figures to move to defensive end in the NFL. He's a very strong player, as he proved by posting 38 bench-press reps, which was better than any prospect at this year's combine. Rouse also posted times of 4.89 and 4.89 in the 40 and had a 26-inch vertical, a 9-7 broad jump, a 4.70 short shuttle and a 7.56 3-cone drill. He's likely to be a priority free agent.
