Here is a breakdown of what stood out at Cincinatti's and Auburn's pro days.

Cincinnati Bearcats

WR Mardy Gilyard
It's not often that a player improves his 40 time at his pro day and could still see his draft stock fall, but that is the case with Gilyard. The 5-foot-11⅝, 184-pounder ran the 40 in 4.53 and 4.56 seconds, which improved his combine times (4.56 and 4.62) but he struggled in the position drills. Gilyard had three-to-four dropped passes that were just outside his frame, which has been a knock on him all season. It is important to remember, though, that he doesn't always practice as well as he plays in the game.
