Ravens take in Pro Day workout of Connecticut cornerback Byron Jones

When Connecticut cornerback Byron Jones, one of the most athletic draft prospects, worked out Tuesday, the Ravens were in attendance.

Ravens senior personnel assistant George Kokinis, a Connecticut native, took in the Huskies' campus Pro Day.

And Jones lived up to his reputation, running the 40-yard dash in 4.36 seconds.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer ran the workout. Jones met with the Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots before the workout.

The 6-foot-1, 199-pound cornerback had previously turned in a staggering 44.5-inch vertical leap at the NFL scouting combine in February during which he also had a 12-3 broad jump. That would have been a world record in the standing broad jump.

Jones' senior season was ended prematurely when he injured his left shoulder and had surgery, preventing him from playing in the Senior Bowl.

A converted safety, Jones had 24 tackles and two interceptions, returning one 70 yards for a touchdown prior to his injury last season. He finished his career with 223 tackles and eight interceptions.

Jones bench pressed 225 pounds 18 times, roughly five months after undergoing surgery to repair his labrum.
