Tech contingent fares well at NFL Scouting Combine
The Notebook
  The NFL Combine, held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, wrapped up on March 3 and several former Tech players performed very well. Here’s an overview, with the results coming from

Cody Grimm – Grimm, a former whip linebacker, was a top performer in both the 40-yard dash and the three-cone drill. He ran the 40 in 4.64 seconds, which was the fourth-fastest time among linebackers, and he ran the three-cone drill in 6.58 seconds – tops among linebackers.

Grimm measured at nearly 5-11 and 203 pounds and projects as a safety in the NFL.

Jason Worilds – Worilds, a former defensive end, stood out at the Combine, ranking as a top performer in four different categories (40-yard dash, vertical jump, three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle). His vertical jump of 38 inches tied for the top spot among the defensive linemen there, while his 40 time of 4.72 seconds ranked ninth among defensive linemen. He ran a 4.29 in the 20-yard shuttle and 6.95 in the three-cone drill, which were seventh and third, respectively, in those categories among the defensive linemen.

Ed Wang – Wang exhibited his strength at the Combine, recording 29 repetitions on the bench press (225 pounds). That number was tied for 10th best among offensive linemen.

Kam Chancellor – Chancellor performed well at the Combine. He recorded 22 reps on the bench press, a number that was fifth best among safeties.

Stephan Virgil and Brent Bowden also competed at the Combine.
