Temple football players who are preparing for the 2012 NFL Draft are undergoing Pro Day workouts on Friday.
Running back Bernard Pierce, who surprised many with a 4.45 40 clocking at the combine, lowered his time by one-tenth today. Several watches had Pierce, not known as a fast ball-carrier, turning in times of 4.34 seconds. Sure-handed receiver Rod Streater also cracked the 4.4-second barrier, timing 4.37 in the 40. (via SI)
Pierce, who rushed for 1,481 yards and 27 touchdowns last season for the Owls, could go in the 3rd or 4th round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Dennis could be a late round pick.
