USC has two players who could go in the first round of next month's 2011 NFL draft: offensive tackle Tyron Smith (above) and defensive tackle Jurrell Casey (below).
Smith is a sure bet to go in the first round, a likely top 20 selection and a possible top 10 pick, even. Casey has an outside shot to be among the first 32 picks, with an early-to-mid second-round spot a more likely destination for him.
Both players worked out at Wednesday's pro day on the USC campus in front of NFL scouts, coaches and general managers.
Smith finished with an impressive 31 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press and ran two 40-yard dashes timed as fast as 4.93. Casey ran a 5.04 40-yard dash on both attempts despite pulling his hamstring near the end of his second run.
