Wide receiver Chris Lacy improved on his results from the NFL combine at Oklahoma State’s pro day on Thursday, particularly in the 40-yard dash.
Lacy was officially timed at 4.43 seconds in the 40, according to the Tulsa World’s Mark Cooper. His former teammate, Marcell Ateman, clocked Lacy unofficially at 4.38. Either way, it’s a significant improvement from the 4.53 he posted at the combine.
That kind of speed is pretty good for a receiver with Lacy’s size, listed at 6-foot-3 and 205 pounds by Oklahoma State Athletics. The former Cowboys receiver also improved his vertical jump at 35 1/2 inches, a 2-inch improvement from his combine result.
Lacy was overshadowed by some of Oklahoma State’s other talented receivers, such as James Washington and Ateman, during his time in Stillwater. With a limited number of targets to go around, he never caught more than 31 passes in a season. That’s part of why he is projected as an undrafted free agent by NFL.com.
However, he demonstrated the talent and physical tools at his pro day that could make him an interesting late-round prospect for some NFL team.
The 2018 NFL draft is April 26-28 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
