North Carolina State offensive lineman Garrett Bradbury could be getting the attention of NFL scouts with some impressive numbers at the annual scouting combine.
After demonstrating his strength with 34 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press Thursday, No. 2 among lineman, the 6-foot-3, Bradbury showed off his speed and agility Friday.
His time of 7.41 seconds in the three-cone drill was the best in the group and his 40-yard dash time of 4.92 seconds was No. 3 among the linemen. Plus, Bradbury had the seventh-best vertical jump at 31 inches. Not bad for a guy who measured in at 6-foot-3, 306 pounds.
Who else fared well Friday?
Andre Dillard of Washington State had the top 20-yard shuttle (4.40), the longest broad jump (118 inches) and was second in the cone drill (7.44). Erik McCoy of Texas A&M had the top 40 among linemen (4.89) and Joshua Miles of Morgan State finished with the best vertical jump (36 inches).

Oklahoma State running back Justice Hill made quite a splash on the first full day of workouts at the NFL’s annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.
He posted the fastest 40-yard dash in his position group (4.40 seconds), the top vertical jump (40 inches) and tied Travis Homer of Miami for the best broad jump (130 inches).
Nobody came close to the eye-popping combine record of 4.22 seconds in the 40, set by Bengals receiver John Ross two years ago.
Ryquell Anderson of Temple was the second-fastest back at 4.45. Mike Weber of Ohio State and Jordan Scarlett of Florida tied for third at 4.47 on a day only five of 28 players did not run. At least two were coming off late season injuries.
Josh Jacobs, of Alabama, chose not to run. He could be the first back drafted in April.
