Add Gregory Ducre to the list of those Huskies who impressed at UW’s Pro Day.
The 5-foot-10, 180-pound cornerback, who started all 13 games for UW as a senior in 2013, is a “mystery man” to many NFL scouts, writes Gil Brandt of NFL.com, but the speed Ducre flashed Wednesday should open some doors for him as the NFL Draft inches closer.
Ducre ran the 40-yard dash in “4.34 and 4.32 seconds,” Brandt wrote. “He had a 35-inch vertical jump and 10-foot-6 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.00 seconds and the three-cone drill in 6.56 seconds. He performed 17 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Ducre had an impressive workout.”
That 4.32 is faster than all but one player (Kent State running back Dri Archer) who ran in February’s NFL combine (though, yes, it is important to note the difference between electronic times and hand times).
Ducre, running for the UW indoor track team, finished second in the conference in the 60-meter dash with a time of 6.81 last year. His personal best is 6.76.

Blessed, enjoyed every moment of it.
