INDIANAPOLIS — The NFL combine performances of all four former Huskers who attended are in the books after defensive tackles Maliek Collins and Vincent Valentine worked out Sunday.
Collins and Valentine, who both declared for the draft with one year left of collegiate eligibility, were in the morning groups inside Lucas Oil Stadium.
Collins, at 6-foot-2, 311 pounds, had a top 40-yard dash time of 5.03. His 10-yard split was 1.79 seconds during that run. Collins completed the three-cone drill in 7.53 seconds, the 20-yard shuttle in 4.52 seconds, went 29 1/2 inches in the vertical jump and had a broad jump of 109 inches — or just over 9 feet. Collins had 25 reps on the bench press Saturday.
Valentine, at 6-4, 329 pounds, had a top 40 time of 5.19. Valentine completed the threecone drill in 8.03 seconds, the 20-yard shuttle in 4.59 seconds, went 29 inches in the vertical jump and had a broad jump of 110 inches. Valentine had 17 reps on the bench Saturday.
Offensive tackle Alex Lewis worked out Friday. His best 40 time was 5.22. He did 27 reps on the bench, went 100 inches in the broad jump and completed the three-cone drill and 20yard shuttle in 7.94 and 4.72 seconds, respectively.
Fullback Andy Janovich had a position-best 30 reps in the bench press. He ran the 40 in 4.81, the three-cone drill in 7.28, the 60-yard shuttle in 11.95 and the 20-yard shuttle in 4.32. Janovich went 34 inches in the vertical jump and 119 inches in the broad jump.
It's likely that all four will be at Nebraska's pro day Thursday, even if none chooses to participate in any drills. All other Husker seniors will have a chance to test in that setting and meet with scouts from NFL teams. In years past, NFL Network cameras and some national media have also attended NU's pro day. That may be unlikely in 2016, since no Huskers are sure-fire first-round draft picks. Collins is projected to go in the first three rounds. — Sam McKewon
