USC WR Deontay Burnett met with the New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons around his pro day on Thursday.
Hat tip to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline. Burnett did not test at the combine, nor did he take part in the team's initial March pro day -- he's been dealing with an undisclosed injury during the evaluating season -- but was on the field for Thursday's makeup affair. The 6-foot, 186-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in the range of the high 4.5's to mid 4.6's. Not particularly impressive, there, but the lightning-quick Burnett excelled in short-area testing, most notably rocking the three-cone drill around 4.70 seconds (a stellar mark). Pauline passes along that the USC wideout "caught the ball well and people said he looked exceptionally smooth" during his drill work on Thursday. Sam Darnold was actually tossing the ball to Burnett during those drills, a very cool touch that we don't often see -- and one which we think shows very well on Darnold as a teammate. He had no obligation whatsoever to participate. Burnett will likely be in the early Day 3 mix later this month. Apr 6 - 1:48 PM
