WR Hopkins pro day workout “dazzling”

Posted by Chris Brown on March 8, 2013 – 11:05 am

NFL prospects are expected to look good at their college pro days. They’re in their comfort zone so NFL scouts are anticipating that they’ll do well. Despite that expectation all accounts of Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins pro day were still extremely positive.

NFL Draft Insider filed this brief report on the playmaking Clemson wideout from his Thursday pro day.

DeAndre Hopkins/WR: Was timed as fast as the low 4.4’s on a number of watches but was later given an “official” time of 4.52.  Except for two drops late in the session his pass catching workout was described as “dazzling”.

Hopkins, who has been compared to Reggie Wayne, has been a model of production at Clemson and in 2012 logged 82 catches for 1,405 yards and a school-record 18 touchdowns, good for second-most in the country. He’s forecast as a late first or early second-round pick.

There’s also a sleeper WR out of Clemson by the name of Jaron Brow, who has the physical skill set to play at the pro level. Here was NFL Draft Insider’s brief report on his day.

Jaron Brown/WR: Had the workout of the day.  Timed 4.40s in the forty, posted a 35.5-inch vertical jump, 10′ 4”-broad jump and completed 17-reps on the bench.  Turned in a sensational pass catching workout.  As one coach told me, “he was overshadowed by the other two guys but he’s going to play in the NFL.”
