Seven former Yellow Jackets with a goal of playing in the NFL took part in Georgia Tech’s Pro Day Monday on the Tech campus.

The four Tech juniors who put their names in the NFL draft — Morgan Burnett, Jonathan Dwyer, Derrick Morgan and Demaryius Thomas — all participated in some fashion today. Thomas, who is recovering from an injury, only took part in the measurements portion. He will have his own pro day later this month.

Also particpating was 314-pound offensive lineman Cord Howard, who did not participate in the NFL Combine, linebacker Sedric Griffin and defensive back Martin Frierson.

Burnett posted an unofficial time of 4.42 in the 40-yard dash. Dwyer improved on his time from the Combine, coming across the line in 4.52. Frierson ran in 4.57, Griffin in 4.83 and Howard in 5.12. Morgan did not run the 40.

Not surprisingly, Howard had the most reps (25) in the 225-pound bench press, followed by Griffin (24) and Morgan (21).

Burnett had a vertical leap of 39.5 inches and a standing broad jump of 11 feet.
