USC To NFL: Trojan Pro Day Numbers

USC hosted its Pro Day at Loker Track Stadium Wednesday giving departing Trojans with NFL hopes like Marqise Lee, Morgan Breslin and George Uko an opportunity to show off their speed, strength and skill before the professional scouts.

Notably, Marqise Lee declined to participate in the 40-yard dash after posting a disappointing 4.52 at the NFL combine in February.

Instead, Kevin Greene, who is hoping to make the most of his limited NFL opportunities posted the fastest time of the day at 4.54. Kevin Thomas, who was drafted at cornerback in 2010 but is now a free agent looking for a new team, posted the second fasted time of 4.61. De’Von Flournoy rounded out the top times with a 4.67.

Xavier Grimble’s best time of 5.02 will be a major red flag for the tight end.

John Martinez will need to do some convincing to earn a spot as an undrafted free agent after the draft. Of course his 42 reps on the bench press, which would have been tied for the most at the Combine, set his strength apart from the others. Kevin Graf posted 27, while Morgan Breslin logged 26. George Uko improved on his combine performance of 18 with 22 reps today.

Torin Harris showed off his hops by topping the charts in both the vertical and standing jump.

Silas Redd sat out several drills because his knee is not 100% yet.
