Middle Tennessee State running back Phillip Tanner ran the 40-yard dash in 4.55 seconds today at his campus Pro Day workout, according to a league source with knowledge of the situation. The 5-foot-10, 208-pounder also posted a 36-inch vertical leap and a 10-3 broad jump.
Among the teams attending the workout: the Titans, Texans, Ravens, Chargers, Browns, Raiders, 49ers and the Buccaneers. Tanner is regarded as a later round possibility for teams. Tanner has versatility with the ability to play wide receiver and return kicks. So, he could provide value for a team looking to save a roster spot.
