Linebacker Akeem Ayers needed a big workout Tuesday to make up for a mediocre Combine, he his fastest 40 time of 4.69 met that goal. Though most prospects are expected to better their Combine times at their pro day, the significant drop means teams looking at him as a 3-4 rush linebacker now see his track speed meeting his game speed.
Combine snub DT David Carter clocked in at 4.98, continuing the ascension up boards that began with a strong East-West Shrine Game week. Carter measured in at 6-4 3/8, 293 lbs. and performed the rest of the drills in a manner commensurate with the mid-to-late round prospects at the Combine: 28.5 vert, 9'3" broad, 1.73 (10-yd split), 25 reps, 4.6 shuttle.
Safety Rahim Moore chose not to run, and looked only average according to reports. He had trouble locating the ball and his hands were just okay during drills, which is somewhat surprising given his reputation as a centerfielder.
Every team was represented at the UCLA workout. The Bears, Vikings, Chiefs, Packers, Ravens, Jets and Raiders had multiple people here including coaches, coordinators and scouting directors.
