Just got some extra updates about the events at Pro Day today.
Twenty-seven of the 32 NFL teams sent a representative to South Bend today. Chicago Bears head coach Lovie Smith was there along with one other head coach I wasn't able to spot. Two GMs made the trip along with a slew of other position coaches and scouts.

Blanton's 40 time (4.53) would have put him fourth among safeties at the NFL Combine. That time puts him in the same ballpark as Alabama's Dre Kirkpatrick and LSU's Morris Claiborne - who are considered to be the top two corners in this year's draft. Blanton is a candidate to play corner or safety at the next level.
Trevor Robinson, who many were surprised didn't get an invite to the NFL Combine, posted measurables that would have been in the top ten among linemen in Indy. His vertical jump (30 in.), bench press (31) and 40-yard dash (5.22) would have all been eighth among NFL Combine participants. His broad jump (8-foot-9) would have put him in sixth.

few more notes from Pro Day provided by Notre Dame:
• Harrison Smith’s 60-yard shuttle time of 11.52 seconds would have been the fastest time by a safety at the NFL Combine.
• David Ruffer made 13 of 15 field goals and many of his kickoffs landed in the endzone.
• Trevor Robinson made the most of his opportunity as he recorded numbers that would have placed him among offensive linemen in the top 10 in four different categories. Robinson would have been the only offensive lineman at the NFL Combine to have ranked in the top 10 in vertical jump (30”; t-8th), broad jump (8’9”; t-6th), bench press (31; t-8th) and 40-yard dash (5.22; 8th).
• Jonas Gray improved his bench press numbers from 20 at the NFL Combine to 22 today.
• Fleming’s 40-yard dash time of 4.54 seconds would have ranked third among all linebackers at the NFL Combine and his 11.58 seconds in the 60-yard shuttlewould have been the fourth-fastest among linebackers at the Combine. Fleming at the NFL Combine ranked in the top seven in bench press, pro agility (20-yard shuttle) and the three-cone drill.
