Southern Miss TE Shawn Nelson did not disappoint with his 40 time here on Saturday posting a 4.53.

Cal TE Cameron Morrah ran a 4.59, Florida’s Cornelius Ingram had a strong 4.62, which was important coming off his ACL injury. 

Rice’s James Casey ran a 4.71 and WNY native Dan Gronkowski ran a respectable 4.78. Brandon Pettigrew ran a 4.85.

But they were all topped by South Carolina’s Jared Cook who posted the best time of the group, a 4.42. Cook a former receiver had said he was hoping for the 4.4s on Thursday. And he got it.

Cook is a mismatch for defenses in the passing game. He’s projected as a 2nd to 3rd round pick, but this could make him a solid second rounder.
