BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Samford football program held its annual Pro Day for NFL Scouts Thursday morning at Seibert Stadium.

Representatives from the Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers put former Samford players Alex Davis, Chris Evans, David Strider and Corey White through workouts on Thursday.

White had an impressive performance, running the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds. White also had a good showing in the vertical jump (41.5) and broad jump (10.6).

White also performed for the scouts at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis last month. He said, despite having a good showing at the combine, he wanted to come out and see if he could improve at Samford's Pro Day.

"I just like to compete," White said. "I always like to compete with myself and try to get a better time in everything I do. That's why I came out here and did it again."

White said performing at the NFL Combine helped him at Samford's Pro Day.

"It was a great experience for me, being one of the only players from Samford to ever get to the combine," White said. "So, I just tried to go out there and do my best, so hopefully it'll work out for the best."

Thats comforting. I can live with 4.47 (Oddly enough, thats exactly what Ingram and Ivory ran at their pro-days)

I wonder why 4.55 was listed at the other two sites? They've always used official NFL combine numbers before.

Did he run the 40 more than once at the combine? That's all I can think of...

good god i hate those pre draft sites. they all differ with the data. i always kinda go with the average.

now the really big question was the 4.40 into the wind or was it at his back?
at the combine were all the doors closed when he ran?
dry field wet field or just a morning dew?
