03/28/2013 - 2013 Georgia Pro Day: Representatives from all 32 NFL teams gathered at Georgia's pro day on Thursday for a workout held outdoors on FieldTurf in approximately 40-degree temperatures. Cornelius Washington, LB (6-4, 263) - Washington ran really well at the combine (officially 4.55 seconds in the 40, which placed him among the top performers in his position group), so he only did the short shuttle (4.75 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.48 seconds) at Georgia's pro day. Washington worked out at linebacker, and the scouts on hand also wanted to see him work out as a defensive lineman with his hand in the ground. However, a pulled hamstring prevented Washington from doing so. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
