WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Rondale Moore was the man of several hours on Tuesday.
In fact, 43 scouts from 30 NFL teams came to West Lafayette to watch Moore at Purdue's Pro Day.
And the former Boilermaker wide receiver did not disappoint.
Moore clocked a 40-yard dash time of 4.34 seconds. He also recorded a 42.5-inch vertical jump.
Moore elected not participate in the bench press but following Pro Day the New Albany native posted a video on Twitter of himself doing 24 reps of 225 pounds.
While the 5-foot-7 Moore attracted a lot of attention on social media because of those events, the workout was a chance to showcase more.
For me, most importantly, it was to show I am healthy and have the abilities and capabilities to go outside and run routes so more importantly than the times and the vertical or whatever I was just going out there and running routes," Moore said.
Derrick Barnes, Lorenzo Neal and Grant Hermanns were among those who also performed.
Barnes turned in an impressive 40-yard dash time: 4.57 seconds. The linebacker had a 37-inch jump to go with 29 reps on the bench.
Barnes really improved his stock after a productive senior season. He led Purdue in total tackles with 54 in six games - 5.5 of those were for loss.
Barnes' campaign earned him a trip to the Senior Bowl in January. However, he's still projected to get drafted in the middle rounds.
Barnes feels differently about his status but he is embracing the journey.
"I do feel like I'm better but at the same time I'll let the process take care of itself," Barnes said. "It's all in God's hands so for me it really doesn't matter. I just want to make a team and be the best I can be and so I think my best football is yet to come."
The NFL Draft is scheduled for April 29 through May 1st.
