UCLA’s pro day on March 12 was closed to both fans and media, but NFL.com has some of the results. Johnathan Franklin caught the ball well, while Datone Jones may be shaping up to as a 4-3 defensive end in the pros. Punter Jeff Locke was also compared favorably to Bryan Anger, whom the Jacksonville Jaguars reached for in the third round last year.
After another impressive practice performance by Jerry Johnson, Rick Neuheisel said he’s at least worked his way into the rotation.
“Jerry Johnson has had a nice camp, he’s been a much more efficient pass-catcher; he’s made plays almost daily,” Neuheisel said. “He just has to prove he knows what he’s doing. We just had a bust there at the end where he forgot he was in the two-receiver slot. But I think he’s working through the rotation.”
