03/13/2012 - Under-the-radar Pro Day workouts that opened eyes: We'll start off at Western Kentucky where scouts from the Tennessee Titans and San Francisco 49ers likely traveled to get a closer look at star running back Bobby Rainey but left buzzing about the raw athleticism of wide receiver-turned cornerback Derrius Brooks. Brooks, who incidentally led the Hilltoppers in interceptions after each of the two seasons in which he played defense (seven total through 2010-2011), was reportedly timed at 4.29 and 4.35 seconds in two attempts at the 40-yard dash. Each would have been ranked as the fastest time recorded at the 2012 Combine. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
