After scare, UK TE Conrad able to work out at pro day … OLB Josh Allen, who is considered to be a top 3-4 prospect for this year’s draft, did not participate at all at today’s pro day at Kentucky, but TE C.J. Conrad was at least able to do positional drills. Conrad, who had been considered to be a decent second-tier candidate for the upcoming draft, had feared that his football playing days might be done when he was sent home from the combine with a heart condition, but he got clearance to resume his career last week and was able to participate at least on a partial basis. However, there still may be a ways to go before NFL teams feels comfortable about having a player with a major health risk on the field. At the same time, a couple of former Wildcats who were not invited to the combine posted eye-catching numbers that at least might get their college tapes a second look. RT George Asafo-Adjei was credited with a sub-4.95 40 clocking, that even if a deflated hand-held time would still be very good, while he also cranked out 31 reps on the bench press, a mark that would have put him tied for 10th at the combine among all players and tied for fifth at his position. Meanwhile, CB Chris Westry created a buzz at the finish of the 40 when he clocked in at under 4.35 seconds and then posted a very competitive 38 inches in the vertical jump.
