There are few more controversial players in this year's draft than defensive back Vontae Davis. The former Illinois cornerback raises plenty of questions. Is he a cornerback or safety? Is he the second or third best corner? Does he have the work ethic to excel? He certainly did that today at the Illinois pro day. Davis ran a 4.40 40-yard dash. An official press release from Illinois said he ran a 4.35.

The Dolphins will hold a private workout with Cincinnati defensive end Connor Barwin.
The University of Florida held its pro day today. The star was receiver Percy Harvin. However, if start reading about it, you can understand the concern teams have. Harvin's ankle is still messed up.

Could the Raiders be looking at California center Alex Mack? If not, they probably should in the second round. Gil Brandt reports Mack had a "sensational" workout.
