Just days after the completion of the NFL combine, the pro-day schedule began in earnest with a couple of big schools, and well-known players, headlining the initial workouts. Here’s the latest from Colorado and Colorado State.

Colorado State

All 32 teams were on hand to watch wide receiver Preston Williams, who was only allowed to participate in medical exams and interviews during the combine.

The productive receiver measured 6042 and 211 pounds yesterday and had an arm length of 33 inches. As is usually the case, there were multiple times thrown around after Williams completed the 40; unlike the combine, there are no true “official” 40 times at pro-day workouts. I’m told several scouts had Williams in the mid 4.5s after his runs, timing him between 4.53 and 4.57.

His three-cone was a solid 7.02 while he timed the short shuttle in 4.34.

Williams made six attempts at the vertical jump and scouts disallowed some of the better marks. The mark he was ultimately given was 31.5 inches, while he touched 9-foot-8 in the broad jump.

During position drills he caught the ball very well.

There is much intrigue and interest around Williams and his playmaking skills. The Baltimore Ravens have an interest in Williams, as well as the receiver-needy Washington Redskins.

The team's other receiver and combine invite, Olabisi Johnson, stood on his numbers from Indianapolis.

The Buffaloes' workout was well-attended, as just about everyone at the Colorado State pro day traveled to Colorado.

Two of the programs non-combine invitees really showed well.

Receiver Juwann Winfree, graded as a priority free agent on our board, measured 6011 and 210 pounds, touched 33 inches in the vertical jump and 10-foot-5 in the broad jump.

He timed the 40 between 4.50 and 4.54, ran the three-cone in 6.97 and clocked 4.24 in the short shuttle. 

Winfree, who was healthy for the first time since last September, caught the ball very well. The Baltimore Ravens are showing a lot of interest in him.

Linebacker Drew Lewis, who looked terrific in Shrine Game practices, was another who impressed.

Lewis measured 6011 and 229 lbs, was timed as fast as 4.49 in the 40 and ran a terrific three-cone time of 7.02.

His other marks included a vertical jump of 34 inches, a broad of 10-foot-9 and 20 reps on the bench.

He spent a lot of time with the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Pittsburgh Steelers over the past 24 hours.

Safety Evan Worthington, who also participated in the Shrine Game and worked out at the combine, timed the 40 between 4.55 and 4.59 before his hamstring tightened up. That’s a major improvement from his official combine time of 4.63 seconds.

It should be noted Worthington completed everything at the combine and timed 7.07 in the three-cone.

He’s drawing a lot of interest from the Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. The New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers also spent time with Worthington during pro day.
