Bama's Hightower, Kirkpatrick work out for scouts

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick and linebacker Don't'a Hightower were among the players participating in Round 1 of Alabama's pro day.

Both let their 40 times stand from the NFL combine but went through position drills Wednesday before representatives of all 32 NFL teams.

Projected first-round picks Trent Richardson, Courtney Upshaw and Mark Barron are scheduled to work out for NFL teams on campus March 29. Hightower also says he'll do the 225-pound bench press repetitions that day.

The 6-foot-2 Hightower says he has shed 10 pounds, down to 265.

He's given up juices and sodas in an effort to keep his weight down ahead of the April draft.

Cornerback DeQuan Menzie ran a 4.66 40, down from 4.74 at the combine. Noseguard Josh Chapman benched 225 29 times.
