Austin also recorded a 39 inch greenthen ran a blazing Running time of 4.32 seconds over 40 yards. With fans in the stands at the combine for the first time, he could go down in history as the first player in combine history to receive a round of applause after his 40 run.

Skyy Moore is no longer a secret

The West Michigan wide receiver raised his eyebrows on Thursday. While 5-foot-10 and 195 pounds, he has huge 10.25-inch hands and ran a 4.39 40 yard dash. That wasn’t all, as Moore looked extraordinarily fluid to run the gauntlet and had some impressive routes down the court. He’s about to hit the drawing boards.

Woods and Okonkwo impress in TE workouts

Jelani Woods of Virginia led all tight ends with 24 reps in the bench press. A draft pick slated for Day 3, Woods then had the second-fastest 40-yard sprint time among tight ends. Woods also impressed during his training on the pitch. In his only season at Virginia, the 6-foot-7 Woods caught 44 passes for 598 yards and eight touchdowns.

Chigoziem Okonkwo ran the fastest 40-yard rush time among tight ends with a 4.52. He looked a bit slower performing the glove exercise, but had one of the best workouts of this group. According to NFL Media’s Peter Schrager, he was interviewed well this week and made a good impression on scouts.

Michigan State’s Connor Heyward, the younger brother of Steelers All-Pro defensive lineman Cameron Heyward, had a solid day that included an impressive performance on the luge drill. UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich was solid in the 40s as well as during the bench press, but he really stood out on the glove drill as he barely broke stride while catching every pass thrown his way.
