C Humphrey, CB Brown stand out at Sooners’ pro day

C Humphrey, CB Brown stand out at Sooners’ pro day … While much of the draft focus today was on North Dakota State where QB Trey Lance worked out, at least a couple of former Sooners had pretty good days at Oklahoma’s pro day in Norman. C Creed Humphrey, for example, ran the 40 in 5.09 seconds and posted 29 reps in the BP, while also recording times of 4.46 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.54 in the 3-cone drill, both of which would have been top 3 marks among OL at last year’s combine. Meanwhile, CB Tre Brown (5-10, 185), one of the top players at this year’s Senior Bowl continued to add to his resume by running in the 4.40 range, along with a 38-inch vertical, although his BP (13 reps) and shuttle times were somewhat below average for the position.

On the other hand, several other Sooners had to be a little disappointed with their pro day results. DE Ronnie Perkins numbers, for example, were okay as he posted a 4.71 40 clocking and a 4.69 short shuttle time along with a 32-inch vertical. However, pro scouts probably were hoping to see a little more quickness and athleticism from a player who is somewhat undersized for the position. At the same time, Brown’s fellow CB Tre Norwood, only clocked a 4.58 in the 40, had a 33-inch vertical, 12 reps in the BP and relatively slow times in the shuttles. At the same time, OT Adrian Ealy only had 18 reps in the BP and barely broke 5.40 in the 40. Same story for RB Rhamondre Stevenson whose 40 time was over 4.60 seconds while he posted only 15 reps in the BP and a vertical of 31.5 inches. If there was a saving grace for Stevenson its that his shuttle times were closer to average among backs at the 2020 combine.
