Sacramento State QB Garrett Safron could be priority free agent

Representatives from four NFL teams were present for Sacramento State's pro day on Thursday.

The pro day was held outdoors and players ran with spikes, which gave them a faster track. Nine players from Sacramento State and two players from Humboldt State worked out. One player from the group -- a quarterback -- has a chance to be a priority free agent.

One scout said the QB -- Sacramento State's Garrett Safron (6-0 7/8, 200 pounds) -- "threw the leather off the ball," so he had good velocity on his throws. He started a little slow, as his first three or four throws were high, but he settled in after that and was very accurate. Safron is a very good athlete.

Safron ran 4.78 on both of his 40-yard dashes. He recorded a 36 1/2-inch vertical and had a 10-foot-7 broad jump. He ran the short shuttle in 4.22 seconds and performed the three-cone drill in 6.85 seconds. He did not bench press.

Wide receiver DeAndre Carter (5-8 1/2, 185) ran the 40 in 4.40 and 4.48 seconds. He had a 38 1/2-inch vertical and a 10-6 broad jump. He completed the short shuttle in 3.80 seconds, which is one of the fastest times I've ever seen. He performed the three-cone drill in 6.64 seconds and had 17 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. Carter had 17 touchdown catches and a kick return for a touchdown last season.
