Three main prospects were to show off in front of NFL Scouts today in Tennessee, but only two finished their workout. Top safety prospect Eric Berry left the workout after spraining his big toe early on in a positional drill, returning to the field in sneakers shortly there after and calling it a day. The injury isn’t serious and shouldn’t affect Berry’s draft stock.
Nose Tackle Dan Williams and running back Montario Hardesty, however, completed their workouts with no issues. Williams showed good footwork and the punch needed to fend off double teams. Hardesty participated only in positional drills, showing off some decent skills in the passing game.
Both Williams and Hardesty continue their climb up NFL Draft boards, Williams solidifying himself as the #3 DT behind Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy. Hardesty is in the 2nd tier of RB’s behind CJ Spiller, Ryan Matthews, and Jahvid Best.
