Besides athletic defensive end Aaron Maybin’s eye-catching showing at Penn State’s Pro Day, several other players turned in strong performances at the Nittany Lions’ campus workout.
According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, speedy cornerback Deon Butler registered a 4.23 in the short shuttle.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Derrick Williams ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 and 4.50 seconds with a 9’7″ broad jump and 18 repetitions of 225 pounds in the bench press test.
Wide receiver Lydell Sargeant ran a 4.48 and a 4.50 in the 40-yard dash with a 10-foot broad jump and a 4.20 short shuttle.
Defensive end Maurice Evans weighed in at 270 pounds and ran a 4.78 in the 40-yard dash.  He also posted a 30-inch vertical leap, a 9’2″ broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times.


  1. “According to Gil Brandt of NFL.com, speedy CORNERBACK Deon Butler registered a 4.23 in the short shuttle.”
    He’s a Wide Reciever

  2. ATTN: Aaron Wilson
    “speedy cornerback Deon Butler registered a 4.23”
    “Wide receiver Lydell Sargeant”
    Okay, I know what the NFL.com link says…but Deon Butler owns every major career RECEIVING record at PSU. I was at the game where he broke the career catches mark. He is clearly a Wide Receiver.
    Lydell Sargeant, on the other hand has ZERO career receptions (unless you are counting his 7 picks). He’s a CB.

  3. The bears need butler. That guy has amazing hands. Can catch anything. Remember, Morelli was his qb for a while ha

  4. Butler does not hold every major receiving record at Penn State.
    He holds the record for most career catches, single-game receiving yardage, single-game catches by a sophomore, catches in a season by a freshman and yardage in a season by a freshman. He also shares a few records broken down by class.
    Most receiving records are held by Bobby Engram and O.J. McDuffie.

    Yea, you’re right. But for his career he’s either at the top or in the top 3. Also, Sargeant had two receptions for 27 yards when he was a freshman in 05.

  6. When we left a comment, the other comments weren’t up yet.
    And Florio/Wilson, in case you haven’t heard (cause you haven’t updated the story), Seargent is a DB and Butler is a WR.

  7. I like Butler as a player the most coming out of Penn State, except for maybe AQ Shipley. He might have short arms but he’s an intelligent hard worker who will make some team happy to pick him in mid to later rounds.
    I think Maybin is juicing to get up to weight and all of his measurables are a hoax. It pains me to say it since I just graduated from there in May of ’08 and I liked his motor on the field.
