I’m told it was a huge crowd today for the NC State pro day, and the workout was full of NFL decision makers. Defensive line coaches for the Indianapolis Colts, Arizona Cardinals, New York Giants and Carolina Panthers were just a small fraction of those on hand. Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli was also at the workout.

Times for Bradley Chubb in the short shuttle ranged as low as 4.18, more than two-tenths faster than his combine mark. Chubb looked great in drills and participated in defensive line drills while also doing a few drops into coverage. Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots, who was on hand for the workout, mentioned to a number of people how impressed he was by Chubb.

Kentavius Street also did drills and looked terrific. He was fast, fluid and looked very athletic. Street timed 4.87 at the combine after weighing in at 280 pounds but strained his hamstring. He recovered well enough to take part in today’s position drills.

Teams love Street’s versatility and feel he can line-up on the edge in a 4-3 and be used as a 3-technique tackle in subpackages. Over the past two days Street has met with the Arizona Cardinals, Carolina Panthers, New York Giants, Indianapolis Colts and Detroit Lions.

Jaylen Samuels was run through both running back and tight end drills and looked terrific, especially catching the ball. He touched 34.5 inches in the vertical jump, which equaled his combine mark. Samuels has met with the New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers since last night.

Defensive lineman Justin Jones stood on just about all his numbers from the combine but did position drills and by all accounts looked incredible. As one scout commented, Jones' ability to bend and explode out of his stance was unparalleled all day. Over the course of the past two days, Jones has met with the New York Giants, Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, Los Angeles Chargers, Detroit Lions and Indianapolis Colts

Nyheim Hines was another who looked explosive and displayed his sheer athleticism at pro day. Hines posted a 10-foot-2 broad jump and timed 4.21 in the short shuttle and 6.85 in the three-cone, all of which were better than the one’s he laid down at the combine.

Much of his position drills were run byTennessee Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur until the end, when Duce Staley of the Philadelphia Eagles took over.

Hines, who had lunch with the Los Angeles Chargers yesterday then dinner with the New York Jets last night, also spent one-on-one time with the Carolina Panthers and Cincinnati Bengals. It’s safe to say he’s ensured himself of a second-day pick

Guard Tony Adams also met with the Los Angeles Chargers as well as the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. A standout during practices for the Shrine Game, Adam will slot into the late part of Day 3.

Finally, underrated linebacker Airius Moore had a solid day. He measured 5116 and 230 pounds, completed 19 reps on the bench, timed 4.14 in the short shuttle and touched 32 inches in the vertical jump as well as 9-foot-8 in the broad jump. Moore, who we have graded just outside of draftable range, met extensively with the Arizona Cardinals.
