UTEP tight end Hayden Plinke took the field Saturday in Indianapolis for the NFL Combine posting an official 4.97 in the 40-yard dash.
Plinke hit 18 reps on the bench press Friday, posted a 28-inch vertical, and a 109-inch broad jump on Saturday. His first run on the 40-yard dash was unofficially clocked at 4.98, and the second was an unofficial 5.01.
He is projected to be a third-day pick among a very deep group of talented tight ends in the 2017 draft class. Plinke would need an exceptionally strong Pro Day next Thursday to increase his stock higher than his current projections based off his production at the combine.
Check out some clips from his workout on Saturday.
