Widely regarded as the top prospect in this April’s draft, defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was the big ticket on Thursday as more than 10 schools hosted their annual pro days.
In Lincoln, Suh and seven other Cornhuskers worked out for 20 NFL teams, which included St. Louis Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo and general manager Billy Devaney, as well as Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew.
Suh tipped the scales at 304 lbs, three pounds lighter than he weighed in Indianapolis last month at the NFL combine. He chose to stand on his results from Indy, but did look very impressive during positional drills, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.
Here are some of the other notable workouts from Nebraska’s pro day:
Larry Asante (Strong safety, 6-0 3/8, 212) only ran the 40-yard-dash. He posted times of 4.66 and 4.68 seconds.
Phillip Dillard (Linebacker, 6-0 ¼, 242) recorded a 9-4 broad jump, ran a 4.53 in the short shuttle and put up 18 reps on the bench (225 lbs).
Barry Turner (Defensive end, 6-3 ¾, 254) ran a 4.83 and 4.85 40-yard-dash while also posting a 27.5 vertical jump and 9-3 broad jump.
Matt O’Hanlon (Safety, 5-10 5/8, 207) ran a 4.64 and 4.65 40-yard-dash, 4.27 short shuttle and 6.97 three-cone drill. He also put up 17 reps on the bench and had a 10-0 broad jump.
