San Jose State defensive lineman Jarron Gilbert shined at his Pro Day with New York Jets coach Rex Ryan putting him through his paces during defensive line drills, according to Tony Pauline of SI.com.
Per the report, the 6-foot-5, 284-pounder registered a 4.76 in the 40-yard dash while running into a slight breeze. He also posted a 37-inch vertical leap and a 10-7 broad jump.
Gilbert had dropped four pounds from his NFL scouting combine weight.
With 26 NFL teams represented at the campus workout, Gilbert reportedly put on a show.
“By all accounts, it was a terrific performance and Gilbert is very much knocking on the door of round one,” Pauline writes.
Carolina Panthers coach John Fox was at the workout as well.
Gilbert’s father, Daren Gilbert, played offensive tackle for the New Orleans Saints from 1985 to 1988.
