Browsing the SEC combine numbers

Several former SEC players helped themselves at the NFL combine.

The fastest 40-yard dash time to this point from an SEC player was turned in by Ole Miss receiver Mike Wallace, who ran a 4.33. It's also the second-fastest time of the combine so far for any player.

South Carolina tight end Jared Cook had a huge workout, finishing first among all tight ends in the 40-yard dash (4.5 seconds), vertical jump (41 inches) and broad jump (10 feet, 3 inches).

Georgia fullback Brannan Southerland was third among all running backs with 28 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.

Georgia tailback Knowshon Moreno did 25 reps on the bench, but didn't finish in the top 10 among running backs. His two 40 times officially were 4.55 and 4.62.

The defensive backs ran Tuesday morning, and Alabama safety Rashad Johnson turned in a 4.52 in the 40, the second-fastest time among safeties.

Vanderbilt cornerback D.J. Moore didn't run a particularly fast time. He was clocked at 4.54 and 4.58 unofficially in the 40-yard dash.

Some of the other unofficial times for former SEC defensive backs were South Carolina's Captain Munnerlyn (4.44), Auburn's Jerraud Powers (4.47), Kentucky's Marcus McClinton (4.53), LSU's Curtis Taylor (4.59) and Mississippi State's Derek Pegues (4.62).
