UCLA RB Damien Thigpen and DB Brandon Sermons each showed enough at UCLA's pro day to be "considered for priority free-agent pickups following the draft," writes's Gil Brandt.
The undersized Thigpen (5-foot-7 7/8, 180 pounds) posted forty times of 4.43 and 4.47 seconds. He also collected a 29-inch vertical, 4.17-second short shuttle, 7.05-second three-cone and 16 bench press lifts. Sermons, meanwhile, posted 4.43 and 4.44 second forties. The 5-foot-11 1/4, 181-pounder also did a 33-inch vertical jump and a 9-10 broad jump. Sat, Mar 15, 2014 04:43:00 PM

Thigpen has been out since last November while recovering form a knee injury. Junior Jordan James has taken the lead role in a crowded backfield, but the Bruins won't complain about depth at the position after losing Johnathan Franklin to the NFL last April.
