• Almost 20 teams were on hand for Pittsburgh's pro day and they saw a good performance from Panther offensive lineman Lucas Nix, who's recovering from a bout of strep throat.
The big blocker stood on most of his numbers from the combine but also worked position drills for almost twenty minutes. He looked fluid, athletic and impressed scouts with his versatility. Nix, who lined up at both tackle and guard for Pittsburgh, is getting consideration for both of those positions as well as center by NFL teams.
Defensive tackle Myles Caragein completed 20 reps on the bench press and ran 5.05 seconds in the forty. The two-year starter on the Panther defensive line was later tried at multiple offensive line positions, at one point snapping the ball from center for scouts.
Cornerback Antwuan Reed improved his forty time from the combine, timing 4.48 seconds, then looked smooth in drills.
Fiery linebacker Max Gruder completed 26 reps on the bench press after measuring 6-foot, 1-inch and 236 pounds. He later timed 4.1 seconds and posted a mark of 32.5 inches in the vertical jump. Gruder projects as a back-up linebacker that can handle the inside or outside spot and scouts feel he will excel on special teams.
• Nineteen teams were on hand in Tulsa as two prospects were the focus of attention.
Multipurpose skill player Damaris Johnson, who was suspended from the team in August after being charged with then eventually pleading guilty to felony embezzlement, performed well for scouts. The NCAA's career all-purpose yardage leader measured a small 5-feet, 7.6-inches and 178 pounds. His fastest forty time clocked at 4.48 seconds. Johnson participated in receiver drills in addition to showing his skills returning punts and kick. The diminutive ball handler is being projected as a slot reciever/return specialist by NFL teams.
Quarterback GJ Kinne looked better than expected. Kinne, whose been working with former NFL starters Chad Pennington and Scott Brunner since January, was sharp throwing the ball. Scouts questioned Kinne's arm strength and asked the signal caller to hurl the ball as far as he could. When they were finished measuring the ball sailed past the 80-yard mark, quelling any concerns about Kinne's arm.

LaMichael James improved his 40-yard dash time and Cliff Harris and Darron Thomas also had a chance to impress NFL scouts as several former UO football players worked out at Oregon’s pro day Thursday afternoon in the Moshofsky Center.
James, who ran the 40 in 4.45 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine last month, was timed at 4.29 and 4.36 at that distance today by UO running backs coach Gary Campbell, the UO assistant said. Scouts, who each recorded individual hand-held times, agreed on a consensus time of 4.41 seconds, a source said.
Harris, dismissed from the team last fall but welcome to work out at the Ducks’ pro day, has bulked up to 180 pounds, about 20 more than he played with at Oregon. He said NFL teams have been interviewing him about his various off-field issues.
Thomas threw passes to James, receiver Lavasier Tuinei, tight end David Paulson and former UO tight end Brandon Williams, who gave up the sport due to injury. Thomas elected not to conduct interviews with local media in attendance.
The other players who worked out Thursday include offensive linemen Darrion Weems and Mark Asper, linebackers Josh Kaddu and Dewitt Stuckey, defensive end Terrell Turner, defensive backs Anthony Gildon and Eddie Pleasant and 2010 senior offensive lineman Bo Thran.

--WR Keith Nichol (6-2, 220) began at Oklahoma as a heralded quarterback but wound up behind Sam Bradford. After transferring to MSU and losing a razor's-edge battle with Cousins, Nichol switched to wideout and made several big plays, including a Hail Mary grab to beat Wisconsin. If he isn't as polished or accomplished a receiver as teammate B.J. Cunningham, Nichol is branding himself as the most versatile player in the draft. With a team-high vertical leap 39.5 inches and the willingness to play anywhere and help on every special team, he should earn a late-round or free-agent look.

Arizona State linebacker Vontaze Burfict bombed the Combine. His interviews were described as disastrous, and his forty time and jumps were pathetic compared to the rest of the linebackers invited to Indianapolis.
So Burfict surely prepared and rebounded at his Pro Day, right?
According to SI.com draft analyst Tony Pauline, Burfict was “not good in position drills” at the Sun Devils’ Friday workout, and Pauline acknowledged that he’s “watering that down.”
One scout told Pauline he “actually felt bad for [Burfict].”
Burfict managed only 16 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. With poor measurables and game tape, and suspect on- and off-the-field character, Burfict may struggle to be drafted at all in April.

If there was ever any such thing as hype involved for a player, this guy was it. Even Rey Rey is a better player than this clown.
