Rudolph 40 times

Posted by Chris Brown on April 7, 2011 – 12:42 pm

Notre Dame TE Kyle Rudolph ran in the high 4.7s at his pro day in South Bend today (Thursday).

A torn hamstring suffered in the middle of last season kept him from working out at the combine, leaving it all for Rudolph’s pro day. The athletic tight end ran a 4.78 and a 4.8 in the 40 according to the┬áChicago Sun-Times.

Mid 4.6s was the goal time Rudolph was shooting for. Even NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said if Rudolph could run in the mid 4.6s he’d be a first-round pick. The folks at Rotoworld also bring up a good point in noting that Zach Miller (Raiders TE) ran in the 4.8s at the combine back in 2007 and wound up being┬áthe 38th overall pick.

Coming off a severe hamstring injury however, some NFL clubs might cut him a break. At worst he comes off the board in the first 10 picks of round two by most projections.
