Former Rebel linebacker John Lotulelei struggled in the 40-yard dash but placed in the top four of his position in two of the six drills players went through in Indianapolis at the NFL scouting combine. The invite-only event for draft prospects was held throughout the weekend and Monday in front of nearly every NFL coach at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Lotulelei finished second out of 16 linebackers in the three-cone drill with a time of 6.91 seconds and fourth out of 20 in the vertical jump, leaping 35.5 inches. He also placed sixth out of 26 in the bench press with 25 reps of 225 pounds.
In other events, the first team all-Mountain West pick and UNLV Defensive Most Valuable Player finished seventh out of 16 in the 20-yard shuttle (4.3 seconds), 16th out of 27 in the broad jump (117 inches) and 22nd out of 26 in the 40-yard dash (4.84 seconds).
Working out on Sunday, Valley grad Kerwynn Williams (Utah State) excelled with the running backs, posting a 40 time of 4.48 seconds and a time of 4.15 in the 20-yard shuttle. Both players will hope to hear their name called during the NFL draft on April 25-27.
