Video: Notes from USF football pro day ...



It's harder to share a lot of insights from USF's pro day for NFL scouts because the Bulls don't release any official measurements or times, so you're left with individual hand times and/or figures that come from agents.

What we can say, generally speaking, is that USF's speed guys -- like corner George Baker and running back Lindsey Lamar -- seemed to run well, even when running into a strong wind on Wednesday afternoon. Corner Kayvon Webster wisely decided to stand on the official 4.41 he ran at the NFL Combine, knowing another run would be more likely to hurt him than help him.

We've got a bunch of short videos to share -- I'm really not a videographer so much as a guy with an I-phone who was there. The audio should tell you how windy it was on Wednesday, and USF ran the 40s both into the wind and with, giving scouts two sets of numbers.

Quarterback B.J. Daniels, making his first appearance since he broke his ankle and ended his senior year in early November, looked solid, showing little signs of any limitations from his injury. He ran well in agility drills and was eager to show what he could do in position drills, both throwing as a QB and getting work as a receiver and defensive back.

As always, there were a ton of USF alums in attendance to support this year's seniors -- soon-to-be free agent Mike Jenkins, Jerome Murphy, Terrell McClain, Mike Ford, Amarri Jackson, all stopping in. Linebacker Sam Barrington and defensive tackle Cory Grissom both have individual workouts ahead with NFL teams, which are politely asking them not to share where they're headed.

Not quite the full turnout we've normally seen at USF pro days -- no head coaches or general managers, best I could tell. Several people commented on how well-run the event was, and was a big step up it is to have it on the turf practice fields as opposed to past years on the infield of USF's soccer field.
