New Mexico's pro day features pair of rookie FA possibilities

Representatives from four NFL teams, including San Diego Chargers executive Randy Mueller, attended New Mexico's pro day on Thursday, when 12 players -- plus two from New Mexico-Highlands -- worked out indoors on FieldTurf.

Cornerback SaQwan Edwards (6-foot-0 3/8, 200 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.53 and 4.52 seconds. He had a 10-foot broad jump and a 36-inch vertical jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.13 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.01 seconds. He performed 10 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Edwards was a junior college transfer to New Mexico from Blinn College, and made a switch from wide receiver to cornerback for the 2013 season. Edwards has good quickness for his size, and could be a priority free-agent signing following the 2015 NFL Draft.

Wide receiver Tyler Duncan (5-11 1/2, 199) ran the 40 in 4.49 and 4.52 seconds. He had a 31 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-7 broad jump. He did the three-cone drill in 7.08 seconds and the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.18 seconds. Duncan, who had 12 receptions for 293 yards and two touchdowns for the Lobos in 2014, looks like a free-agent possibility for some team after the draft.
