With only one month remaining until the 2015 NFL Draft kicks off in Chicago, a handful of former LSU players had one final opportunity to showcase their abilities at Pro Day on Friday afternoon.
The event proved to be critical for the two former Tigers’ running backs, as both Kenny Hilliard and Terrence Magee ran the 40-yard dash and participated in individual drills.
Hilliard stole the show, though.
After running a 4.83 40-yard time at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis last month, Hilliard stepped up his game for the NFL coaches in attendance at the LSU indoor practice facility. Hilliard improved his time to a 4.60.
Meanwhile, former Tiger center Elliott Porter opened eyes with his strength, performing an event-high 34 reps on the bench press.
Former LSU cornerback Jalen Collins did not participate on Friday, though he did attend the event to encourage his ex-teammates. Collins had foot surgery on March 19.
In total, 23 players performed at Pro Day, including three players who have been away from the program for more than a year – fullback J.C. Copeland and linebackers Tahj Jones and Karnell Hatcher.
