2012 NFL Draft: Bernard Pierce, Rod Streater Put Up Blazing 40 Times At Temple Pro Day

Temple football players who are preparing for the 2012 NFL Draft are undergoing Pro Day workouts on Friday.

Bernard Pierce was able to improve on his 40-yard dash time from the NFL Combine. Wide receiver Rod Streater also turned in a fast 40 time today.

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)

Blocking tight end Matt Balasavage reportedly ran a 4.78 40 while offensive guard Derek Dennis ran a 5.23.

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.
