A half-dozen receivers coaches from around the league were on hand for Toledo's pro day to watch the workouts of the Rockets' trio of pass catchers, including two who participated in the combine. Here’s the latest.

The Indianapolis Colts, Tampa Bay Bucs, New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers were four of the teams who had wide receiver coaches on hand for the workout. The receiver workout was run by Nick Caserio of the New England Patriots.

Combine participants Cody Thompson and Diontae Johnson stood on their combine numbers but participated in position drills. Each stood out catching the ball, and Johnson also looked good fielding punts.

This was an important workout for Johnson, as he struggled with consistency late last season. His ability to effectively produce as a slot receiver has many people believing he will be drafted in the middle of Day 3.

Both receivers met extensively with the coaches on hand, and Johnson, who has four top 30 visits on his schedule thus far, also met with the Buffalo Bills.

The teams third wideout, Jon'Vea Johnson, ran incredibly fast, timing in the high 4.3s to low 4.4s in the 40. Some feel he may have cemented himself as a last-round pick.

Cornerback Ka'dar Hollman also tested well.

Hollman timed as fast as 4.37 seconds in the 40 and touched 39 inches in the vertical jump. He has three official visits and two private workouts.

Hollman met with the New York Giants, Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins over the past two days.
