Williams Impresses in Austin

Scouts by the droves will be spread all around the country today and one area of focus is Austin, Texas where the Longhorns take to the field. Several big name, early draft picks who did not workout at the combine will do so today and we will be providing real-time results.

The early word from Texas has come in and wide receiver Roy Williams did not disappoint. Touted as one of the quicker receivers in the draft, Williams was timed by one NFL team and 4.39 while another team clocked him at 4.40 and 4.44. Not team had Williams above the 4.40 mark on one of his runs.

Scouts in attendence commented on the field the players ran on and called it "a slow surface."

Williams also posted a vertical jump of 39 1/2-inches, an broad jump of 11 feet, did 17 reps on the bench, had a 3.73 20 yard shuttle and a his times in the three cone drill ranged from 6.68 to 6.74.

Williams looked great in positional work and caught all the balls thrown his way.

Defensive tackle Marcus Tubbs logged times of 5.11 and 5.15 by one NFL team's watch and 5.21 and 5.25 by another.

Nathan Vasher, considered one of the top cornerbacks to enter the 2004 draft, has looked terrible. Vasher posted pedestrian times of 4.58 and 4.65.

B.J. Johnson pulled up one yard short with a hamstring injury on his forty, running a 4.71. Even with his injury, Johnson was still slow.
