There was a large crowd on hand at Missouri, with the majority in attendance to see quarterback Drew Lock. But there were several additional noteworthy performances that must be pointed out.

We’ve discussed the medical situation surrounding receiver Emanuel Hall at length. Doctors who examined Hall upon his return from Indianapolis declared he did not have the sports hernia combine doctors thought possible but suggested he be cautious during his remaining predraft workouts and not overdo it.

As a result, Hall -- who timed 4.39 seconds in the 40 during combine workouts -- participated in only position drills today and looked good. He looked explosive running routes and caught the ball exceptionally well.

Hall met with the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints today. He continues to receive a lot of interest from the New York Jets.

Linebacker Terez Hall started the day well, posting a vertical jump of 39.5 inches and 9-foot-11 in the broad jump. During his first attempt in the 40, he strained his Achilles and his day was done.

The game plan is for Hall to run for scouts on a yet-to-be-determined date in the future. 

Hall had dinner Thursday night with the Houston Texans and met with the San Francisco 49ers, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots on Friday.

Tight end Kendall Blanton improved his 40 time from the combine by almost one-tenth, timing 4.88 seconds, then caught the ball reasonably well during position drills. Last night he met with the New Orleans Saints.

As far as Lock was concerned, once again people on hand that I spoke with are enamored with his physical tools and arm strength but are concerned with his consistency and accuracy.

Lock showed the ability to make all the throws Friday from a stationary position in the pocket or on the roll. And while he made some beautiful passes, he was also all over the place at times.

This just confirms what I’ve said about Lock in interviews the past four months; he has more upside than any signal caller in this draft based on his physical tools but comes with a big bust factor.
