Thursday Pro Day results: Keenan Allen sits out, unknowns impress


Cal wide receiver Keenan Allen was a disappointing scratch at his pro day Thursday. Plenty of lesser-known players picked up the slack elsewhere, however, including East Central Oklahoma defensive tackle Armonty Bryant, Nevada tight end Zach Sudfeld and UNLV linebacker John Lotulelei.

The 2013 Pro Day circuit rolled on Thursday. Michigan, West Virginia and Oregon highlighted the day, but pro days at Cal, Georgia Tech, Tulsa and elsewhere were also worth keeping an eye on. Check out the highlights below:

Cal: Keenan Allen, SB Nation's No. 2 wideout in the 2013 NFL Draft class, did not run through any testing. He was expected to go through position drills, but had to pull out after his knee began bothering him during warmups. It was a quiet day in general, with the Combine participants opting to sit out for the most part. Running back Isi Sofele had the best day of the non-Combine athletes, turning in times of 4.49 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 6.82 seconds in the three-cone drill and 4.22 seconds in the 20-yard shuttle.

Georgia Tech: Cornerback Rod Sweeting ran shuttle drills, and reportedly looked quick. Wide receiver Tevin Washington didn't, unfortunately, clocking in with a disappointing 4.71 in the 40-yard dash. Running back Orwin Smith was unable to participate as expected, due to his ongoing recovery from shoulder surgery in January.

Tulsa: Though it was Tulsa's pro day, the star attraction was East Central Oklahoma defensive lineman Armonty Bryant, who has a chance to be a late-round draft pick in April. On Thursday, he showed off tremendous athleticism, posting a 4.72 40-yard dash, 34.5-inch vertical jump and 10'1 broad jump after weighing in at 6'4, 260 pounds. One knock against him may be his strength, however. Bryant did just 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. As for actual Tulsa players, cornerback John Flanders reportedly turned some heads with a 4.38 in the 40.

Nevada: The Wolf Pack's pro day actually happened Wednesday. Two players stood out in particular from a physical standpoint. Tight end Zach Sudfeld weighed in at 6'6, 253 pounds, and ran the 40 in 4.72 seconds. Along with his 37-inch vertical, Sudfeld's size, speed and explosiveness could have him moving up draft boards. Ditto linebacker Jeremiah Green, who posted even more ridiculous numbers after weighing in at 6'1, 245 pounds. He posted 4.47 seconds in the 40 (!), 39.5 inches in the vertical, 10'1 in the broad jump, 6.98 seconds in the three-cone drill and 4.28 in the short shuttle.

UNLV: Just two teams were on hand to watch linebacker John Lotulelei participate at UNLV Pro Day. Lotulelei rewarded them for the trip, timing between 4.61 and 4.65 seconds in the 40-yard dash

Arkansas State: Quarterback Ryan Aplin was on hand, throwing passes to wide receivers. He has the potential to be a late-round sleeper if he continues to impress. Aplin is currently SB Nation's No. 21-ranked quarterback in the 2013 NFL Draft class.

Wyoming, Delaware, Fort Valley State, Grambling State and West Alabama also held their pro days Thursday, though none of those schools are expected to have any players enter in the NFL Draft discussion.
