Quaylon Ewing-Burton doesn't have the gaudy measurables of former Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon. He doesn't have the accolades and key role on a very successful team like former TCU running back Ed Wesley.
The former Boise State defensive back showed that he still has something to offer the NFL at his pro day workout today. The workout was held at Ewing-Burton's high school, Kempner, in Sugarland, Texas. According to Matt Woodward of Sports Management Inc., at least seven NFL teams were in attendance, including Buffalo, San Francisco, Arizona, Washington, Houston, the New York Jets and Dallas.
Woodward reported the results of the workout on Twitter:
While Ewing-Burton's 40 and broad jump would have put him in the middle of the pack at the NFL Combine, only four defensive backs had less than his 12 bench press reps, and his three-cone and short shuttle times would have been the worst of any defensive back at the combine.
Ewing-Burton was realistic in an interview with Matt Falk of Draft Season. He said his long arms, height and speed were his best attributes, and that his goal was to make and stick on a team.
No one expected Ewing-Burton to carry a draftable grade, and these workout results only confirm that belief. The number of teams present does indicate that Ewing-Burton will at least get to a training camp on a tryout basis. Rotoworld draft expect Josh Norris tweeted that Ewing-Burton is the third-best prospect in the supplemental draft class after his workout numbers came across the wire, which is in line with the interest shown by the NFL.
Update: Ewing-Burton went undrafted in Thursday's supplemental draft.
