South Florida held its pro day workout earlier this week, and with S Nate Allen nursing a quadriceps injury, DE Jason Pierre-Paul had the spotlight to himself.

Pierre-Paul posted a 40-yard dash time of 4.78 seconds at the NFL combine and stood by that number, which is a good time for a 6-foot-4¾, 270-pounder, though he did improve his broad jump (9-foot-9) and vertical jump (31½ inches) slightly.
