Defensive back Sean Chandler says he got what he wanted out of Temple's pro day, which was a lower time in the 40-yard dash.
Yet Chandler says that measurables such as 40-yard times don't begin to tell what type of player he is.
"I am a defensive back and I am expected to run fast," he said afterward. "I am a football player. Get me into camp and I will ball out."
Chandler was among 15 seniors who participated in pro day at Temple's indoor facility on Monday. An estimated 40 NFL scouts representing 30 teams were in attendance, according to a team official.
A four-year starter from Camden, Chandler was the only Temple player to be invited to the NFL Scouting Combine. He ran 4.65 seconds in the 40 last month in Indianapolis, which isn't considered blazing.
Chandler said the combine was a great experience.
"There were a bunch of great guys who welcomed me and it was a good time," he said. "It really wasn't stressful."
That's because he has been preparing for this his entire life.
Monday was just another step on his way to the NFL.
Times weren't posted during Monday's pro day, but Chandler said he ran better.
Before departing for the day, he said one team told him it clocked him at 4.56 seconds and another had him at 4.58.
The 6-foot, 190-pound Chandler is an intriguing prospect due to his versatility.
After spending his first two seasons as a starting cornerback, Chandler started at safety his final two seasons.
He said NFL teams have talked to him more about playing safety.
As a senior, Chandler started all 13 games and contributed 79 tackles, three interceptions and four pass breakups. He helped lead Temple to a 7-6 record and a 28-3 win over Florida International in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl.
He returned only two punts (for 9 yards) as a senior but is considered a potential punt returner at the next level.
As a sophomore, he averaged 12.1 yards on 17 punt returns.
Chandler is realistic about where he will get drafted, saying he will probably be a late-round selection. But all he wants is a chance and he is confident he will make the most of the opportunity.
