WACO, Texas The Baylor football team hosted Pro Day Tuesday and a pair of Bears may have helped their draft stock.
Jalen Hurd is expected to be a middle round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. He worked out a little bit at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis. He did some other drills today including running the 40 yard dash. Hurd is coming off a knee injury and says he's pleased with his light workout and hopes the NFL personnel guys are as well.
Derrek Thomas is also expected to be taken in the NFL Draft. Thomas is a defensive back who has size and speed that caught the attention of scouts at the Combine. Tuesday he did the drills he didn't do in Indianapolis and says he thought he had a good workout but not a perfect workout.
Two guys who may have helped themselves move closer to a draft pick are Greg Roberts and Ira Lewis. Both defensive lineman showed well in today's workouts as scouts put them through several position drills.
