The closing week of pro-day workouts is a west coast affair and started in Washington today. Here’s the latest.

The big news coming from Washington pro day was Taylor Rapp running in the mid 4.7s. I’m told he timed from 4.72 to 4.77 seconds despite the fact that Rapp had been running much faster in recent training.

Where is Rapp going to land in the draft after today?

He wasn’t a flat-out burner on film, but Rapp makes a lot of plays with his head and intensity. I’d be surprised if he gets out of Round 2, as Rapp is a high-character prospect whose leadership skills have been lauded by scouts.

Over the course of the past two days, Rapp met one-on-one with the Arizona Cardinals, Tampa Bay Bucs, New Orleans Saints, Oakland Raiders, New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers.

His official visit list over the next two weeks includes the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions, St Louis Rams, New York Giants and Carolina Panthers, who'd be an excellent fit for Rapp.

Neither Rapp nor teammate Byron Murphy participated in positions drills today.

Offensive tackle Kaleb McGary stood on his combine numbers but did participate in position drills and looked good. McGary has watched his draft stock improve over the past three months and could end up in the second round.

Over the past two days, he spent time with the Buffalo Bills, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers.

His official visit list includes the New England Patriots, Los Angeles Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars. The Atlanta Falcons will also be making a trip to work out McGary.

Defensive tackle Greg Gaines timed as fast as 4.99 seconds in the 40, an improvement of 0.16 seconds from his combine mark.

Gaines has watched his draft stock take off since the Senior Bowl, and I’m told the hometown Seattle Seahawks like Gaines and have their eye on him.
