WR Vincent Brown (San Diego St.), who put together a phenomenal showing during Senior Bowl week practices earlier this year, had his on campus pro day workout on Thursday.
Brown, who played primarily on the outside in college, caught just about everything thrown his way in Mobile and probably had the most impressive week of any receiver that week.
“It was very good,” Brown told FOXSports.com about his performance during Senior Bowl practices. “I was able to be there for a high level of competition with all the best guys in the country all in one spot. It’s a good place to showcase your talent and what you can do against the best. And that’s something that I was able to do there.”
His pro day workout, which was attended by most NFL teams, consisted mostly of catching passes and running the 40-yard dash.
“I was ready to run routes and to show off my catching ability. That was very big for me. Whenever I can do that, that’s always good,” Brown said.
Brown (5’11” 2/10, 187), who is known in scouting circles for his strong route running and solid hands, posted slower than ideal 40-times during February’s NFL Scouting Combine of 4.68 and 4.71. He improved greatly Thursday running between a 4.52 and 4.57. While his 40-time was considered slow during the Combine, he had one of the better 3-Cone drill times for a receiver in Indianapolis with a 6.64.
“Well, I play much faster than my 40-time says. I can be a deep threat and I have a pretty good feel for the game,” he said.
And Brown is probably right to a degree. He greatly improved his yards per catch average the past two seasons (17.3-2009, 19.6-2010).
Brown, who is capable of playing inside or outside, said he worked out for Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz recently and is expected to visit the San Diego Chargers soon.
