LINCOLN — Former Nebraska linebacker Will Compton wore the biggest smile of all the Huskers working out at Thursday's Pro Day. He ran a 4.54 40-yard dash, jumped 32 inches in the vertical, more than nine feet in the broad jump, and finished with 24 repetitions in the 225-pound bench press. Of the 15 scouts on hand, Compton said, several had strong feedback.
“I helped myself out a lot,” Compton said. “I got a bunch of great feedback. I'm humbled and flattered. I can't wait to go call my parents.”
