Michigan State's talented draft class stand out at Pro Day

Representatives of"virtually all"of the NFL teams were on hand to see a talented class of Michigan State Spartans work out Wednesday at the university's Pro Day.

Senior quarterback Kirk Cousins was an obvious focus of scouts on hand. Cousins demonstrated his accuracy during passing drills but otherwise largely stood on the workout he'd had at the Scouting Combine, according toa league source present for the Pro Day. There were a handful of quarterbacks coaches at the workout, including from the Browns, Seahawks and Vikings.

Junior defensive tackle Jerel Worthy, Michigan State's top-rated prospect according to NFLDraftScout.com's rankings, answered any concerns about his strength with 28 reps of 225 pounds Wednesday after not participating in this event in Indianapolis. He also ran the 40-yard dash again, registering a similar time (5.02-5.07) as the one he had at the Combine (officially a 5.08).

Junior running back Edwin Baker boosted his stock by running faster in East Lansing than he had at the Combine. Baker, who had clocked in at 4.53 seconds at Indianapolis was credited with a 4.40 time Wednesday.

A strong effort was also turned in by safety Trent Robinson. The athletic safety had impressed at the Combine, turning in one of the better all-around performances at his position there, including running well (4.53). He shaved a tenth of a second off of his time for scouts Wednesday, however, and showed good agility and speed throughout his positional drills, as well.
