USC Pro Day 2014 Recap

NFL scouts saw 21 Trojans take the field at USC's Pro Day. While some improved their numbers from the NFL Combine, for others it was their only chance to impress NFL scouts. 

USC's Pro Day saw 21 Trojan NFL hopefuls participating. 

Representatives from all 32 NFL teams, including Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano, were present to check out the Trojans working out and running agility drills. USC head coach Steve Sarkisian, and current players Hayes Pullard and Josh Shaw, who both decided to forgo the NFL Draft, were also there to check out the action. Former special teams coach John Baxter also stopped by to watch his former players run drills.

The Trojans' top prospect, wide receiver Marqise Lee, did not participate in the 40-yard dash, but did post a time of 4.52 seconds in the NFL Combine back in February. Lee did participate in catching drills, and the bench press with 11 reps. 

"I'm happy. I'm satisfied. I felt like I gave 100%," said Lee, who gave his performance a B+. 

Safety Dion Bailey, linebacker Devon Kennard, defensive lineman George Uko, and running back Silas Redd also didn't participate in the 40-yard dash. Redd is still recovering from a knee injury from last season and will have an individual workout in April. Bailey and Kennard did participate in other drills, as Bailey benched 14 reps and Kennard benched 22. 

Outside linebacker Morgan Breslin was able to prove himself for the first time after he was sidelined by a hip injury for most of the season. Breslin didn't participate in the Combine. Today, Breslin had times of 4.75 seconds and 4.95 seconds in the 40, had a vertical of 35.5 inches, and benched 26 reps. 

Outside linebacker Kevin Greene, who tested as a tight end today, had the best 40-yard dash times for the Trojans with 4.59 seconds and 4.54 seconds

Offensive guard John Martinez had 42 reps on the bench press, tying the most reps at this year's NFL Combine. 

The 2014 NFL Draft is from Thursday, May 8 to Saturday, May 10.
