Pro Day Workout: Paul Oliver

For the second time in three days a prospect in next month's supplemental draft worked out for NFL decision makers. Georgia cornerback Paul Oliver hoped today's performance would jumpstart his NFL career. Here are some quick notes from the workout.

Twenty-seven teams were on hand at the workout as both league scouts and directors of college scouting lined the field.

Sources at the workout told us Oliver clocked between 4.50-to-4.58 seconds in the forty, depending on whose stopwatch you read.  His vertical jump was 33.5 inches.

Oliver did stand out in the position drills, showing excellent defensive back techniques and superb hands, for which he was complimented.

Several teams including the Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers will be bringing Oliver in over the next week for one-on-one interviews as well as physicals.

When we specifically asked if the New England Patriots had shown any great amount of interest in Oliver, the answer was an emphatic "no."

Tomorrow afternoon we will update the teams Oliver is set to visit and get more reaction from his workout.
