North Texas pro day

The Mean Green haven’t had a player drafted since 2004 but see that streak ended this year as WR Jaelon Darden is part of the deep receiver class fo 2021. Darden, who had a breakout year this past fall when he caught 76 passes for over 1,100 yards and 19 TDs in just 9 games, isn’t all that big at just 5-8, 174, but he has good speed with a 4.46 40 clocking and even better quickness. Indeed, Darden’s times in the two agility drills – 3.98 seconds in the short shuttle and 6.66 in the 3-cone – would have been the fastest at the position at the 2020 combine.
