While bench-press reps and broad jump measurements were announced for all to document at USF’s pro day Monday, 40-yard dash times mostly remained a secret between scouts and their stopwatches.

But if the howls and hoots (from teammates) elicited by Deatrick Nichols’ 40 effort were any sign, the versatile Bulls defensive back partially stole Monday’s three-hour showcase.

Unofficial times for Nichols ranged from 4.32 to 4.36 seconds, believed to be the fastest registered Monday before representatives from 30 NFL teams and two Canadian Football League clubs. He also had a 37-inch vertical leap and did 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench.
