Players in Three Cone Run (official times not announced)

Hayden, Standring, Kelly, Hubbard, Donovan and Swan. Donovan slipped on his first run rounding the third cone but ran much better the second time. Swan looked real crisp making the cuts and showed a real burst of speed off the snap.

Mehlhaff (14), DeBauche (13), Kamoku (19), Kelly (22 - did not fully lock arms on all reps however) and Standring (17).


- Kamoku, Kelly and Hayden worked out on defensive drills for scouts, working on agility, coordinator, awareness and catching ability. Each player went 1-for-2 on interceptions.

- Coleman looked solid on pass blocking, agility, dropping back into protection, etc. Coleman was one of the many Badgers that appeared to improve their stock.

- After struggling with his hands at the combiine in Indianapolis, Hubbard had a much better outing catching passes from Tyler Donovan. Dropping only one pass and still have a couple of bobbles, Hubbard looked more comfortable catching passes.

- After the Badgers finished their workout, scouts stayed to watch some athletes work out, including Whitewater Justin Beaver (Division III's Player of the Year),former Badger Brett Bell and former Warhawk Tre Bell, who suffered an ACL tear before the draft two years ago.

- Travis Beckum, Zach Brown, Gabe Carimi, Jonathan Casillas, Jake Current, Brad DeBauche, David Gilreath, Aaron Henry (walking without crutches), P.J. Hill, Elijah Hodge, Daven Jones, Andy Kemp, DeAndre Levy, Maurice Moore, Joshua Neal, Bill Rentmeester, O'Brien Schofield, Matt Shaughnessy, Blake Sorenson, Kraig Urbik, Jay Valai and Jamil Walker were among the Badgers in attendance supporting their teammates.

- Barry Alvarez, head coach Bret Bielema and the majority of the Badger coaching staff, including new tight ends coach Joe Rudolph were present.

- Green Bay's General Manager Ted Thompson was the biggest name present. For whatever reason, he was taking a close look at the quarterbacks.
