UConn CBs Gratz, Wreh-Wilson shine at NFL combine

Add cornerbacks Dwayne Gratz and Blidi Wreh-Wilson as members of the 2012 UConn team to open eyes at the NFL scouting combine.

It actually started Monday when Gratz bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times, which tied him for the best mark among cornerbacks.

Gratz ran a 4.47 in the 40 (the unofficial time was reported as 4.35) and Wreh-Wilson did a 4.53.

Wreh-Wilson had the fourth best effort among the cornerbacks in the broad jump (10-8). In the vertical jump Gratz was fifth at his position with a leap of 38-0 while Wreh-Wilson was tied for ninth at 36-0.

Their performances followed up the efforts by Sio Moore and Trevardo Williams.

Moore was in the top five in the bench press (29 reps), 40-yard dash (4.65), vertical jump (38-0) and broad jump (10-7).

Williams had the best showings among the defensive linemen in the 40 (4.57) and vertical (38-0), was third in the broad jump (10-4) and fifth in the bench press (30 reps).
