Ihenacho was clocked at 4.51 and 4.52in the 40-yard dash Wednesday, downsignificantly from the 4.68that was given as his "official" time fromthe Combine and within one-hundredth of the timeSouth Carolina State safetyChristian Thompsonwas credited with as the position leader in 2012.
Ihenacho also showed great improvement in the vertical jump,going from a solid 35" effort in Indianapolis to a 39.5" vault that would have ledall safeties at the Combine. He also added an inch to his Combine broad jump of 10'2" Wednesday.
Ihenacho's workout numbers are impressive -- but unlike some ofthe other workout warriors that occasionally popup inon campus Pro Day workouts, Ihenacho has proven his ability on the field, as well. Ihenacho first earned All-WAC honors as a sophomore linebacker. He earnedthe accoladesin 2009 and 2011, as well, as asafety. In between Ihenacho missedvirtuallyall of the2010 season with a broken left foot.
The 6-0, 213 pound Ihenacho left SanJose Statewith a reputation as a big hitter and a playmaker. With limited help around him, Ihenacho helped cause 13 turnovers (seven interceptions, three forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries) over his career and is currently NFLDraftScout.com's No. 6 strong safety for the 2012draft.
Considering his production and workout, frankly, that's probably too low.
