Trent Richardson, this years top RB prospect, had his turn at the 40-yard dash during Thursday’s Alabama Pro Day. Reports say that Richardson ran in the 4.45-to-4.49-second range.
Lindsay Rhodes of NFL Network reports those in attendance include Patriots coach Bill Belichick, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and Browns coach Pat Shurmur along with general managers Trent Baalke (49ers), Martin Mayhew (Lions), Ruston Webster (Titans) and Kevin Colbert (Steelers).
Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan and Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels also were there.
“There hasn’t been a Top 10 running back since Adrian Peterson (actually, C.J. Spiller of Clemson went ninth overall in 2010),” Richardson said. “I want to set the bar high and put us back on the map and show them that we’re very, very rare and that we need to be in the Top 5, Top 10. We need to be up there high.”
