Cameron shines at the combine
The NFL Scouting Combine is under way, and while much of the discussion has been directed toward standout quarterbacks, specifically Auburnâs Cam Newton and Missouriâs Blaine Gabbert, one former Trojan attracted some serious attention.
Jordan boasted an impressive time of 4.59 seconds in the 40-yard-dash, which was the second best time among tight ends. His three-cone time of 6.82 seconds ranked higher than anyone else at his position.
Caplan went on to praise Cameron for his notable size, (6â 5 1/8ââ and 254 pounds) but added that it may take him a while to adjust in the NFL given his minimal experience at the tight end position.
Cameronâs only year as a tight end was last year. Prior to that, he served as a wide receiver. In 12 games during the 2010 season, he recorded 126 receiving yards, including one touchdown and six rushing yards.
Eight USC players were selected to participate in the combine. Besides Cameron, the other players included running back Allen Bradford, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey, defensive back Shareece Wright, offensive tackle Tyron Smith, center Kristofer OâDowd, wide receiver Ronald Johnson, and fullback Stanley Havili.
The NFL combine runs through March 1.
