9:40 p.m - Ruggs is out here doing what has never been done:
8:55 p.m - The broadcast showed a video of John Ross watching Ruggs run the 40 and NFL analyst Steve Smith said, "He might be watching him take his job too the way he plays."

8:45 p.m - Moving on now to the gauntlet drill, it does not appear Ruggs is on the field for this one. His official 40 time is 4.27. That is good for sixth all time at this event.
8:35 p.m - The receivers are now going through the on-field route running drills. Jeudy missed his first deep ball. He catches one in stride on his second time through the drill. Dallas Cowboy legend Michael Irvin calls Jeudy, "Mr. Smooth."
8:25 p.m - Ruggs runs a 4.31 on his second try. Not his best, but still mighty impressive.

7:35 p.m - Hurts helped himself a great deal tonight in all of the drills. NFL Network analyst Charles Davis said "it was not just good, it was exceptional." Jeremiah even said that he does not see Hurts falling below the second round.
