Kansas State RB Daniel Thomas Runs 4.6 40-Yard Dash At Delayed Pro Day

The Kansas State Wildcats held their pro day in March but RB Daniel Thomas wasn't able to workout thanks to a nagging injury. He's recovered though and re-scheduled a workout for NFL teams on Tuesday.

The big stat from pro days most folks care about is the 40-yard dash -- Thomas did that in 4.6 seconds. That's a solid number for him as there have been some concerns about his speed.

Thomas is 6"0" and 230 pounds and in an era when a two-back system is gaining traction I could see a few teams with interest in him. As long as Thomas can stay healthy, he could shoot for the second or third round in the 2011 NFL draft.

The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the teams spotted at the workouts. They could potentially be looking for a replacement for Thomas Jones to pair with Jamaal Charles so that's a team to keep an eye on. Other teams in attendance include the St. Louis Rams, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints.
