Believe it or not, Florida quarterback Tim Tebow wasn’t the only player to work out for on Wednesday.
The University of Tennessee hosted its annual pro day yesterday, with 14 players working out for personnel from all 32 NFL teams. Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel was one of the coaches in attendance, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.
As our own Aaron Wilson reported yesterday, standout safety Eric Berry (5-11 3/8, 211) sprained his toe and had to withdrawal early from the workout.
Here are some of the notable performances from Wednesday in Knoxville:
Quarterback Jonathan Crompton (6-3 ¼, 222) ran 4.87 and 4.89 in the 40-yard-dash, 4.39 in the short shuttle and 7.02 in the three-cone drill. Crompton also posted a 31.0 vertical jump and 8.10 broad jump. He reportedly looked impressive during passing drills.
Running back Montario Hardesty (5-11 5/8, 226) only participated in position drills.
Tight end Jeff Cottam (6-6 3/8, 262) ran 4.78 and 4.81 in the 40-yard-dash, 4.44 in the short shuttle and 7.12 in the three-cone drill. Cottam also posted a 32.0 vertical jump, 9.5 broad jump and put up 19 reps on the bench.
Defensive tackle Dan Williams (6-1 7/8, 327) stayed with all of his results from the combine and took part in position drills.
Offensive lineman Chris Scott (6-4 5/8, 320) only participated in position drills.
Defensive back Dennis Rogan (5-9 1/8, 186) ran 4.69, 4.59 and 4.70 in the 40-yard-dash (he ran three times due to a discrepancy in the first two attempts). Rogan also posted a 7.25 in the three-cone drill, 38.5 vertical jump and 10.3 broad jump.
