James Hanna turns heads at NFL combine
Former Oklahoma tight end James Hanna, who caught 52 passes for 720 yards and 9 touchdowns during his collegiate career, had an impressive showing at the NFL combine today. Here's an excerpt from ESPN Insider's NFL draft blog :
Oklahoma TE James Hanna (6-3¾, 252) turned some heads with a strong workout. Hanna posted a 4.49-second 40-yard dash, a 36-inch vertical jump, and a 10-foot-2 broad jump. He did drop two passes early on, but Hanna regained his composure and fared better as drills progressed.
Hanna's 40-yard dash was first among the tight ends at the combine. And he wasn't the only Sooner to impress. Left tackle Donald Stephenson, who started two years at OU, ran a 4.94 40-yard dash, the fastest among all the offensive lineman.
It will be interesting to see where Hanna and Stephenson get drafted in April.
