Woods, Okonkwo impress in TE workouts

Virginia’s Jelani Woods led all tight ends with 24 bench press reps. A projected Day 3 draft pick, Woods then put up the second-fastest 40-yard dash time among tight ends. Woods also impressed during his on-field workout. During his lone season at Virginia, the 6-foot-7 Woods caught 44 passes for 598 yards and eight touchdowns. 

Chigoziem Okonkwo ran the fastest 40-yard dash time among tight ends with a 4.52. He did look a little slower running the gauntlet drill, but had one of the better workouts of this group. Per NFL Media’s Peter Schrager, he’s interviewed well this week, and has made an impression on scouts.

Michigan State’s Connor Heyward, the younger brother of Steelers All-Pro defensive lineman Cameron Heyward, had a solid day that included an impressive performance during the sled drill. UCLA tight end Greg Dulcich was solid in the 40 as well as during the bench press, but he really stood out during the gauntlet drill, as he barely broke stride while catching every pass thrown his way.
