    Has anyone heard anything about how our ex-Tigers did in the recent pro day held at LSU? I'm sure everyone's heard about Devery's 40 but I was wondering how the other players did.

    Found some news:

    By Scouts, Inc.
    For ESPN Insider
    1:20 PM ET



    LSU had some mixed results at its Pro Day, with close to 100 NFL officials in attendance. WR Devery Henderson (5112, 196) had the best day of the Tigers, running 4.33 and 4.36 in his two 40-yard dash attempts. Michael Clayton, as expected, ran in the mid 4.5s. DT Chad Lavalais had a decent workout. He ran a best of 5.04 in the 40, had a 25-inch vertical jump and ran the short shuttle in 4.62, all respectable results. However, it was disappointing that he only completed 17 reps on the bench press (225 pounds). Finally, DE Marquise Hill was the big loser of the afternoon. Hill checked in 10 pounds lighter (296), which led scouts to believe he took off the weight to run a faster 40-time, but he ran two marginal times of 5.22 and 5.30

    I think both juniors that left should have stayed. Hill because he needed one more year of seasoning, and Clayton because this has become the worst year for a receiver to declare. The wide receiver position is loaded. I also would have liked to have these two guys back like everybody else on this site.

    When Clayton declared, he probably did so to avoid being in the same draft as Fitzgerald and Mike Williams. Unfortunately for him, the judge in the Maurice Clarett case let anyone declare thus allowing two guys into the draft that will most likely be picked ahead of him.

    Also it was interesting that nothing was said about Matt Mauck. I saw on on ESPN Insider that Mel Kiper said Mauck made the right move in coming out this year, except I don't have insider so I couldn't see the article. Does anyone have insider that read the article and can give us a synopsis?

    i think they are both fine leaving now but Hill needs to find some work ethic regardless when it was he goes pro. Clayton will be fine... mike williams is one thing that hurt him some.

    Found some more good info, a little research pays off. Looks like Randall Gay is a burner in the same class as Devery:

    Ran indoors on AstroTurf. They had the largest attendance ever for a Pro Day. There was somewhere between 75 and 85 people, although no head coaches were present.
    Player Position Gil's comments

    Michael Clayton WR Clayton ran identical 4.54s in the 40. He had a complete workout at the combine.

    Randall Gay DB Gay (5-10 7/8, 185) ran his 40s in 4.33 and 4.36. He had a 39-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-6 long jump, 4.24 in the short shuttle, 11.08 in the long shuttle, 6.78 three-cone drill and did nine strength reps.

    Devery Henderson WR Henderson (5-11¼, 196) ran his 40s in 4.38 and 4.36. He had a 35½-inch vertical jump, 10-foot-3 long jump, 4.27 short shuttle, 11.37 long shuttle and 6.78 three-cone drill.

    Marquise Hill DE Hill (6-6¾, 296) ran his 40s in 5.22 and 5.30. He had 23 strength reps, 30½-inch vertical jump, 9-foot long jump. He did not run any of the shuttles because of a pulled hamstring.

    Chad Lavalais DT Lavalais (6-2¼, 302) ran his 40s in 5.06 and 5.04. He had 25-inch vertical jump, 8-foot-7 long jump, 17 strength reps, ran 4.62 in short shuttle and 7.54 in three-cone drill.

    Stephen Peterman DT Peterman (6-4, 317) ran his 40s in 5.28 and 5.34, and ran the 10 in 1.90. He had a 24-inch vertical, a 7-11 long jump, did 23 reps, a 4.75 short shuttle and a 7.85 three-cone drill.
