More than two dozen NFL teams were on hand to watch several Iowa Hawkeyes workout Monday afternoon, and the highest-rated prospects did not disappoint those who made the trip.

Cornerback Amari Spievey posted slightly better 40 times than at the NFL combine. Most scouts had Spievey in the very low 4.5-second range, while a few stopwatches read 4.49. Spievey looked solid in position drills afterward and secured himself as a top-75 pick.

Linebacker A.J. Edds and Pat Angerer both ran in the high 4.6s, beating their respective 40 times at the combine, as well.

Junior offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga stood on most of his combine numbers, yet did participate in the bench press. His 27 reps were one better than his number from Indianapolis (26). He also took part in position drills on Monday. Bulaga is unlikely to slip past the 12th pick of Round 1.


During the Duke pro day, scouts came away impressed with linebacker Vincent Rey. The team's leading tackler (weighing 240 pounds) gave scouts reason for pause, after turning in a terrific workout -- 4.58 and 4.54 in the 40; 38½-inch vertical jump; 6.79 seconds in the three-cone drill.

Several teams have been showing a lot of interest in the multi-versatile Rey, who was productive at middle linebacker and on the weak side for Duke.
