Dawg CBs, LB sizzle at pro day … There was some major league speed on display at today’s pro day workout at Georgia. Both of CBs Eric Stokes and Tyson Campbell, for example, ran under the 4.4 mark for the 40. Stokes, who already had a major move up on draft boards around the NFL, in particular, had a great day. He was clocked at 4.34 in the 40 and had an athletic 39-inch vertical. NFL teams are also going to like Stokes’ length. He measured in at a nice 6-0, 194, but even better has 33-inch arms which is the kind of length NFL teams covet on the corner. At 6-1, 197 Campbell actually measured in at an inch taller than Stokes, but was an inch shorter in the arms. Stokes topped off his day with an athletic 39-inch vertical. For his part, Campbell was timed unofficially at 4.37 seconds for the 40. In fact, Georgia had arguably the deepest CB group in the country with a couple of others that could at least get some late round or free agent interest including DJ Daniel and Mark Webb. Daniel measured in at 5-11, 183, but with 33-inch arms and ran the 40 in 4.5-flat, while Webb came in at 6-0, 210 (with 32-inch arms) and timed in the 4.55 range for the 40.
Bulldawgs’ OLB Azeez Ojulari also likely made himself some money on the day. Ojulari also measured in at 6-2, 250, but had rangy 34.5-inch arms, again the kind of length the NFL teams are always looking for in an edge rusher. Ojulari then went and ran a quick 4.60 40 and did 28 reps in the BP to accentuate his case. Ojulari also reportedly looked very good in positional drills.
OG Ben Cleveland also reportedly opened some eyes at the UGA pro day. He was absolutely massive measuring in at 6-6.5, 354, although he has somewhat shortish (33-inches) arms. Cleveland also reportedly ran under 5-flat for the 40, which is ridiculous for someone that size and has yet to be confirmed. C Trey Hill also passed the eye test as he measured in at 6-3, 320 with 33.5-inch arms.
At the same time, a couple of former Bulldawgs didn’t run quite as well as hoped. Safety Richard LeCounte, for example, who measured in at 5-10, 196, was only able to clock a 4.83 40, although he is still not 100% recovered from a motorcycle accident last fall. Meanwhile, ILB Monty Rice, running at a smallish 6-0, 238, was also slowish with a 4.82 40 time, while we are still waiting on a time for DE Malik Herring, a 5T DE who measured in at 6-3, 283, but with only 32.5-inch arms.
