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.
