His father George was a first-round selection by the Giants in 1985, and his alma mater LSU has an unparalleled reputation for churning out NFL-ready players, especially defensive backs.

Running back Leonard Fournette is lighter.

The clocks on campus were showing a 4.33 time for Adams but there's traditionally some home-cooking involved at every pro day, and the only real "official" times are the ones the teams themselves harvest and keep for their own uses.

Safety Jamal Adams has a faster time in the 40-yard dash.

Teams like the Bears must weigh the all-around game and athleticism of Adams with the special ball skills of Hooker.

With his improved 40-yard dash time, Adams secured his status as one of the top players in the 2017 National Football League draft and an attractive "high-floor" prospect for teams selecting very early on draft weekend.

While his numbers weren't stellar past year (try fighting for touches with stud back Leonard Fournette in an inconsistent offense), Dupre has experience both on inside routes and outside routes, which is a trait that Carolina is looking for in this draft.

Despite spending the past few weeks training and rehabilitating in Baton Rouge, former Tiger linebacker Kendell Beckwith was not able to participate in a pro day event Wednesday at LSU.

Fournette showed up to the Scouting Combine at what he described as a water-logged 240 pounds, and since that time, has apparently dropped 12 pounds...

"Adrian Peterson is one of the best running backs in the league". Adams ran 40 yards 4.33 seconds, improving on his combine time of 4.56. But Adams wants to leave his best out there and wouldn't settle for the 4.56 he ran at the combine. His ability to play any of the five line positions will boost his draft grade.
