Notes:

Stave went 50-for-55 on his passes, showcasing a variety of passing routes for scouts. Three of his incompletions were drops (two by Erickson, one by Traylor) and the other two were overthrows. After running the 40 in 4.8 seconds and having a 33.5-inch vertical at the combine, Stave, who has added 15 pounds of muscle since he began his training regiment, decided to let those numbers stick.

After doing only 19 reps at the N.F.L. Combine, it was a little surprising Marz didn’t try to improve his numbers on the bench. However, he did shave .13 seconds off his 40-yard dash time. He also spent the last half of pro day doing pass protection drills for scouts.

McEvoy did not run the 40-yard dash after being advised not to by his camp, as he was battling right knee tendinitis. He did go through drills at both receiver and safety.

Watt said he’s been working on his long snapping, hoping to make himself that much more appealing to a N.F.L. team.

Former quarterback Scott Tolzien (Green Bay) and defensive end J.J. Watt (Houston) stopped by for parts of the workout. Notable N.F.L. personnel included Packers general manager Ted Thompson and Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien.
