Getting tested along with about 55 other receivers, Henry posted the fourth-best mark in the broad jump, spanning 10-foot-6, according to

Henry also had an unofficial 40-yard dash time of 4.50 seconds, according to the NFL Network, placing him just outside the top 10 of all receivers who ran.

Heated competition

Besides Henry, several Big 12 Conference wideouts were tested Sunday, including Kansas State's Jordy Nelson, Texas' Limas Sweed, Oklahoma State's Adarius Bowman and Missouri's Will Franklin.

Quarterbacks and running backs also did on-field workouts Sunday at the RCA Dome.

Up next

The defensive linemen and linebackers are up next, which means former KU defensive tackle James McClinton will be put to work this morning.

Television coverage of the Combine starts at 10 a.m. today on the NFL Network (Sunflower Broadband channel 154).

Marcus Henry has the size hands and speed to be an NFL WR. His talent should put him some where in 3-4 round area but he will be lucky to be drafted at all. Shame, keep your head up work hard and you are going to make it
