03/17/17 - Virginia Tech Pro day: After setting a Combine record (among tight ends) with an 11-2 broad jump, leading all players at the position with a 39-inch vertical and recording a 4.57 time in the 40-yard dash at 6-6, 257 pounds, tight end Bucky Hodges opted to sit on his measureable numbers Wednesday, though he did show power and aggression in blocking drills, according to a scout on the scene, and caught the ball well. Receiver Isaiah Ford shaved a tenth of a second off of his disappointing Combine 40-yard dash time (4.61) and also caught the ball well. Hodges and Ford rank sixth and 15th, respectively, among their position groups. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
