NORMAN — Six former Oklahoma players have participated in this year’s NFL Combine. Workouts for offensive prospects are complete. Offensive tackle Lane Johnson, quarterback Landry Jones and wide receiver Kenny Stills seem to have improved their draft with what they have done at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

· Lane Johnson, offensive tackle: Johnson seems to have solidified himself as a first-round pick with and impressive round of workouts. He finished 13th or higher among all offensive tackles in the six workout drills.

40-Yard Dash: 4.72 (2)

Bench Press: 28 (13)

Vertical Jump: 34 inches (2)

Broad Jump: 118.0 inch (1)

3-Cone Drill: 7.31 (2)

20-Yard Shuttle: 4.52 (5)

· Landry Jones, quarterback: No one was expecting Jones to flash great speed and he didn’t. OU’s all-time leading passer did flash athletic ability in the rest of the drills.

40-Yard Dash: 5.11 (13)

Bench Press: DNP

Vertical Jump: 31 inches (4)

Broad Jump: 115.0 inches (5)

3-Cone Drill: 7.12 (5)

Bench Press: 16 (8)

Vertical Jump: 35.5 inches

Broad Jump: 124.0 inches
