DraftFix: Pro Days - Auburn, Rutgers

Over the next month, we'll be keeping you updated with news and workout numbers from the pro days for most of the top colleges.


Two top prospects improved their stock at Auburn's pro day as running back Kerryon Johnson ran a 4.49 in the 40-yard dash and cornerback Carlton Davis ran a 4.45. Johnson didn't run the 40 at the combine, while Davis had run 4.53.

Each opted to sit on their combine numbers for the other drills. Johnson had posted outstanding numbers in the jumps but below average agility and one of the worst bench presses at his position. Davis didn't do any agility drills at the combine but posted a good broad jump and bench press. Offensive lineman Braden Smith didn't work out at the pro day following an excellent set of combine results.

Outside linebacker Jeff Holland was the only other Auburn player at the combine where he posted above average numbers in the only two drills he did - the 40 and the broad jump. He made only slight improvements on each and had a vertical jump of just 31 inches.

Other potential draft picks include OL Austin Golson, defensive back Tray Matthews and linebacker Tre' Williams. All three of these posted results that were mostly average to above-average.


Rutgers' pro day took place at Florham Park in the Jets training facility.

Edge defender Kemoko Turay was Rutgers' only combine participant and he injured his hamstring running a good 40 time. As a result he couldn't work out yesterday, although he posted a below-average 18 bench press reps.

Turay might end up being the only Rutgers player drafted but the next most likely is probably wide receiver Janarion Grant, who reputedly has "blazing speed". Grant weighed in at just 177 pounds but ran a disappointing 4.57 and posted below average results in everything but the broad jump.

Cornerback Anthony Cioffi impressed with a 4.47 40-yard dash and an excellent three cone drill (6.62).
