2013 NFL Combine results: Virginia Tech wide receivers Corey Fuller, Marcus Davis show off athleticism

Marcus Davis posted the best vertical leap of any wide receiver, while former track star Corey Fuller ran a great 40 to keep both low-round prospects in the minds of NFL scouts.

Corey Fuller's not the draft's top wide receiver prospect, but the former Virginia Tech prospect impressed at the NFL Combine with his 40 time.

Fuller ran a 4.43, the ninth fastest among wide receivers. Fuller had run track at Kansas before becoming a Hokie, so his straight line speed isn't exactly surprising, but when you combine his speed with his frame - he's 6'2 - he gives teams something to look at. Fuller is projected to be a fifth- or sixth-round pick. Marcus Davis, also a fringe wide receiver prospect out of Virginia Tech, didn't show as well in the 40 - he ran a 4.56 - but his 39.5-inch score in the vertical leap drill was tied for the best of any wide receiver.

Oday Aboushi, the Virginia offensive tackle projected to be a second-rounder, didn't have the best outing at the combine. His 19 reps on the bench press was average or worse, although it's relatively tough to judge offensive linemen off of their combine drills - many of the players near the top of the bench press are not considered top picks.
