Friday Pro-Day Coverage
Washington 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 draft. Barnes will have a private workout for the St.Louis Rams and the Tennessee titans. West Virginia 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 vertical jump. 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. Purdue 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: Orton: 5.10/5.14 Stubblefield: 4.73/4.69 Goldsberry: 4.73/4.77 Moore: 5.29/5.21 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 Stubblefield.
