Scouts representing the San Diego Chargers, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francisco 49ers were all in attendance at the workout.

The players participated in various NFL-related measurements and timing drills before closing out the workout with some position-related work.

Bryant came in at just over six-feet, five-inches tall and was at 317 pounds. He had an impressive wing span of 82 3/4 inches. Bryant had a 24.5-inch vertical leap and a broad jump of seven feet, nine inches. Elkins was 6-2, 298 and was solid with 25 reps on the bench press, a 29-inch vertical leap and a best of eight feet, nine inches in the broad jump.

Hess measured out at 6-1.5 and 231 pounds. He had a vertical jump of 27 inches and a best broad jump of 27 inches. Liste was 5-9.4 and was 174 pounds with a vertical of 31 inches and a broad jump of nine feet, four inches.

The players each ran the 40-yard dash twice and were clocked through 10 yards and 20 yards during their run. The three-cone drill followed as well as the short shuttle.

Elkins and Bryant worked on offensive line drills together while Hess threw various routes to Sharbaugh and Peterman as well as former Penguin Torrian Pace.

Liste preformed kickoffs, punts and placement kicks in a windy Stambaugh Stadium to conclude the workout.
