I saw a news article that this guy did a 4.38 40 at Oregon St's pro day........this guy looks good. 6'3, 216, good measurables, tall safety, could be a good grab in the 6th round or so.....

"The scouts said it went well," Hardin said. "I blew it up with the
times. They were impressed. I missed all last season and didn't get an
(NFL Scouting) Combine invite. This was my chance to turn some heads
that I deserved to be in the combine." Hardin, a defensive back, lost
his senior year due to a left shoulder injury suffered in practice.
Before the injury, he was considered as high as a third- or fourth-round
draft pick, but slipped into the sixth or seventh realm after the
injury. Shoulder surgery repaired the damage, and he sat out his senior
season to recover and train. Hardin played in the East-West Shrine Game
in January to prove he could still play. "What I've been told, I have
the potential to move myself up (in the draft)," Hardin said. "I just
need my foot in the door and I'll impress them." Pro day was important
to have a 40-yard dash time recorded and bench press as much as possible
to prove the shoulder has healed. Hardin ran 4.40 and 4.36 seconds in
the 40 and benched 225 pounds 24 times. Before the injury he benched
that weight 21 times. "I showed I have speed and strength and
versatility," Hardin said. "(The scouts) knew I was fast, but this was
the first time I had a really solid time (recorded). And I proved the
shoulder is healthy with the bench." - Oregon State football from CBSsports.com (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1724658/brandon-hardin)
