PRO DAYS
D.J. Hayden overcomes the odds en route to pro day

By Gil Brandt |
Published: March 18th, 2013 | Tags: 2013 pro days, D.J. Hayden, Houston

D.J. Hayden — who nearly died after he tore a major vein in his heart during a November practice — was the featured attraction at the University of Houston pro day on Monday.

Hayden, a cornerback (5-foot-11 3/8, 189 pounds), was timed in the 40-yard dash in 4.40 seconds (on the fast watch) and 4.44 seconds (on the slow watch). He ran only once due to pulling his left hamstring while running the 40. I imagine the teams on hand in Houston will split the difference on those times and Hayden’s official pro day 40 time will be 4.42 seconds. Before Hayden ran the 40, he performed a 33 1/2-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot broad jump. He was unable to do the positional workout.

Hayden is a real medical miracle guy, who many didn’t think would be able to workout at the pro day. Instead, he exceeded expectations and is 100 percent healthy (with the exception of the hamstring pull Monday, of course).

This guy could be a steal! He was a baller before sustaining that freak injury.

Here are some highlights:

He's still healing from the surgery because I don't think he's benching yet, but yes, absolutely.

Can we please draft someone with no health concerns this time?

That's a valid point but I was thinking if he is there in the late rounds say 6-7 he could be a steal with little repercussion if he doesn't work out.

I'm pretty sure the media will have 0 influence on who a team drafts.

The media and mock drafts begin to change when information on who teams like starts to come out closer to the draft. All this talk about Hayden is an indication that teams like him.

I think a lot of it has to do with his recovery from that injury. He would have always been this high had he not had that injury, but now that he's healthy teams are putting him back on their boards.

he could go first round.  I doubt he will even be there at 43.

Pull the trigger if he is there at #43.

Dont take the risk.  Everytime he takes a hit to the trunk is going to risk a rupture, terrible story, but football may be to dangerous for him.

I'm very skeptical.

Didn't it just say that he blew out his hammy?

My bet is on a DL at no.43. or a trade up for one.

Nowadays you never know. Maybe Todd Mcshay did some "consulting" for Hayden's agent that paid 20 grand? Now he is the no.1 CB in the WORLD.
