Ex-Georgia players try to impress NFL execs during workout

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Former Georgia linebacker Jordan Jenkins is used to playing in front of 90,000-plus fans at Sanford Stadium.

Jenkins said Wednesday’s pro day was arguably more intense.

Along with outside linebacker Leonard Floyd, running back Keith Marshall, receiver Malcolm Mitchell and 15 other former Bulldogs, Jenkins ran drills for NFL representatives from every team.

New England coach Bill Belichick, Atlanta coach Dan Quinn and Buffalo coach Rex Ryan were among those taking notes.

Floyd is Georgia’s best hope to get drafted high. He’s been projected as a late first-round or early second-round pick.

Marshall, who missed 19 games with knee injuries in 2013 and ’14, boosted his stock with the fastest time in the 40-yard dash – 4.32 seconds – at last month’s NFL scouting combine.

Former Jenkins County High School star James Deloach also took part in UGA’s pro day. The defensive end ran a 4.96 40-yard-dash.

The draft is April 28-30.
