Over 30 NFL scouts and coaches from teams that included the Tampa Bay Buccaneers attended the 2008 USF Pro timing day to further evaluate Jenkins, Williams, Moffitt and the other seniors that are hoping to make it to the next level.
In addition to the Buccaneers, the other teams in attendance were: Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, Arizona Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, New York Jets, New Orleans Saints, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams, Indianapolis Colts, and New England Patriots.
Cornerback Mike Jenkins, who is a likely candidate to be the first Bulls player selected in the first round, did not participate in the testing portion of the day, but did work in position drills, and impressed all with his performance.
Fellow cornerback Trae Williams improved his stock and bested his 40 time of 4.53 at the NFL combine with a 4.48/ 4.53 in the 40. His 2.60 at 20, and 1.55 at the 10, were also the fastest times ran during the day. Trae also was had the best marks in the 3-cone (7.03), the shuttle (4.37), and in the 60 (11.25). His vertical increased from 29 inches to 33.
Linebacker Ben Moffitt ran 4.55 and 4.62 in the 40 yard dash. He also increased his numbers from the combine in the vertical from 32.5 to 37.5 inches, and in the broad jump, from 9'9 to 10'4 feet, and led all players participating in the two events.
Defensive tackle Richard Clebert benched 225 pounds 38 times to lead all players. That number was several off from his USF record of 43 reps in the fall.
Receiver Amarri Jackson did well in position drills, catching almost everything thrown to him on a windy day.
