Representatives from 21 NFL teams gathered at Mississippi State’s pro day on March 6, where 18 players worked out. Notable coaches present were New York Giants defensive line coach Robert Nunn, New Orleans Saints defensive backs coach Wesley McGriff and Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.
Johnthan Banks, CB (6-foot-2, 186 pounds) — Banks ran the 40-yard dash in 4.58 and 4.59 seconds, had a 4.28-second short shuttle, and a 34 1/2-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-6 broad jump. While his 40 time was slightly better than the 4.61 seconds he ran at the NFL Scouting Combine, Banks looked good in the positional workout.
Darius Slay, CB (6-0, 192) — Slay did not work out in the positional drills after pulling a muscle running the 60-yard shuttle. Slay did manage to do a 32 1/2-inch vertical jump. Slay posted the the best 40-yard dash time (4.36) among defensive backs at the combine.
