Anthony Johnson – Noteworthy
The Buffalo Bills AdPro Sports Training Center felt less like of a homecoming for UB football seniors and more like every player for themselves as they try to continue their football careers. Representatives from 31 of 32 NFL teams were in attendance as the Los Angeles Rams were the only team not represented. Anthony Johnson and Tyree Jackson drew in attention after their combine performances but over 10 Bulls and local players were hoping scouts would notice their athletic abilities, too. Still, the biggest news of the day was Johnson’s 40-yard dash time.

Johnson did not run it at the combine two weeks ago due to a sore ankle that he suffered at the Senior Bowl in January. Johnson has been looked at as a top receiver in the class but without his 40 time, teams would not know the speed of the projected early-round pick. The Spectrum clocked in his times at 4.41 and 4.43 but consensus from other scouts in attendance says he averaged closer to a 4.50 in the dash. All times are unofficial and were taken by hand. – University at Buffalo, The Spectrum
