Khalif Barnes did not work out today and decided to stay with his
combine numbers. Barnes did take part in positional drill and one scout
mentioned that "Barnes had a great workout"
Jacksonville, Houston and Chargers spent significant time with Barnes and
closed the gap on who will be the number one offensive tackle in this years
Barnes will have a private workout for the St.Louis Rams and the Tennessee
Adam "Pac Man" Jones had a great workout today. Jones looked
aggressive and confident, yet many scouts did not take that as a being cocky
rather just a solid prospect. Jones secured the top CB available in the 2005 NFL
draft with today's performance.
Was clocked as fast as a 4.34 and as
slow as a 4.41. The general consensus was the cornerback broke the 4.40
barrier and averaged a 4.38. He also turned in a 38-inch vertical jump.
Receiver Chris Henry improved from his combine showing, also breaking
the 4.40 mark with a 4.38 on most stopwatches. Henry posted a 38-inch
Kay-Jay Harris caught ball well and displayed swift feet and lateral
moves. Teams such as the Tamp Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks and Chicago Bears
all spent a significant amount of time with Harris. Scouts thought his condition
was good, and squashed all concerns teams had. Harris will be hosted by many
teams for private interviews in the next couple of weeks.
Running back Kay-Jay Harris has looked awfully good thus far. After weighing in a 235 pounds, Harris turned in an outstanding vertical jump of
40 inches, then ran his forties between 4.47 and 4.52. All those marks are
significantly better than his combine numbers.
Quarterback turned receiver Rasheed Marshall had the best vertical
jump at 41 inches and ran his 40 in a time of 4.50.
Early in the morning at Purdue's Pro Day the Carolina Panthers met at length
with quarterback Kyle Orton and receiver Taylor Stubblefield.
There is two inches of snow on the ground and all the workouts will be held in
the Boilermakers indoor facility.
So far the star of the show at Purdue this morning has been
fullback/linebacker Jon Goldsberry. Measuring in at 6001/245, Goldsberry
completed 24-reps on the bench, turned in a 29-inch vertical jump and 9-5 broad
jump. He is listed on today's sheets as a linebacker, though he displayed
excellent skill as a lead fullback late last season.
Offensive guard Tyler Moore turned in a 27-inch vertical jump and 8-6
broad jump. He also completed 27 reps on the bench though some scouts are
only giving him credit for 15 repetitions as he did not lock his elbows on close
to half of his attempts.
Receiver Taylor Subblefield measured in at 5112/174 and was only able
to turn in a 32-inch vertical jump.
Forty times from Purdue:
Cornerback Antwaun Rogers chose not to participate in the workout and
will likely take the field at the Boilermakers' next pro day.
Goldsberry confirmed that, although listed as a linebacker, every team he has
spoken with projects him to fullback.
The Lions skipped the morning media session to speak with Orton and
Today is another important day on the schedule for on-campus workouts.
Adam Jones of West Virginia runs for scouts while his Mountaineer teammates also
will be performing. At Purdue, Taylor Stubblefield runs while there is a
good chance Khalif Barnes lifts out in Seattle. We will
have live updates throughout the afternoon.
