INDIANAPOLIS — South Carolina quarterback Conner Shaw, of Flowery Branch High, and Georgia State wide receiver Albert Wilson had strong days on Sunday.

Shaw had the third-fastest 40-yard time (4.66 seconds) of the quarterbacks. He also had the third highest vertical jump (34 inches), fifth-best broad jump (9 feet, 8 inches), fifth-best three-cone drill (7.07 seconds) and 11th-best 20-yard short shuttle in his position group.

“I’ve met with Tampa Bay and Jacksonville,” Shaw said. “(I’ve had)  a bunch of informal talks. I think I have met with every team except for about seven for informal interviews. It’s been a good bit. I did not talk to the Titans but I talked to them twice in L.A. at the all-star game.”

Wilson ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds.

“Albert Wilson ran tremendously well,” NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock said.

Wilson lifted 225-pounds 10 times, had a 37.5-inch vertical jump, a broad jump of 123 inches and 7.0 in the three-cone drill and 4.21 seconds in the 20-yards shuttle.

Here’s how some of the other local players performed:

Vanderbilt wide receiver Chris Boyd (Roswell) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.73 seconds.

Central Florida’s Storm Johnson (Loganville) lifted 225-pounds, 16 times, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.6 seconds, had a vertical jump of 35.5 inches, a broad jump of 118 inches.

Notre Dame’s T.J. Jones (Gainesville) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.48 seconds, had a vertical jump of 33 inches, a broad jump of 119 inches, three-cone run of 6.82 seconds and a 20-yards shuttle time of 4.27 seconds.
