Here are the player recaps from

Shaun Cody (DE) - Cody (6-3 7/8, 292) ran his 40s in 5.03 and 5.05. He had a 30-inch vertical jump, a 8-foot-1 long jump, a 4.54 in the short shuttle and 7.70 in the cone.

Mike Patterson (DT) - Patterson (5-11 3/8, 291) ran his 40s in 4.93 and 4.90. He had a 32½-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot long jump, a 4.51 short shuttle and a 7.68 cone.

Matt Cassel (QB) - Cassel (6-4 3/8, 222) ran 4.90 and 4.93 in the 40. He had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-7 long jump, a 4.08 short shuttle and a 7.21 cone. He's been a backup quarterback to Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart and was drafted in baseball by the A's.

Matt Grootegoed (LB) - Grootegoed (5-10½, 211) ran 4.80 and 4.72 in his 40s. He had a 34-inch vertical jump, a 9-foot-1 long jump, a 4.39 short shuttle, a 12.12 long shuttle and a 7.40 cone drill with 22 strength lifts.

Lofa Tatupu (LB) - Tatupu (6-0, 240) ran 4.70 and 4.73 in the 40. He had a 4.27 short shuttle and a 7.68 cone. A lot of scouts talked to him afterwards about his weight and thought looked a little too heavy at 240 pounds and needed to get back to his playing weight (225 pounds).
