PRO DAY: Tre Herndon Draws Plenty of NFL Interest At Vanderbilt Workout

Vanderbilt cornerback Tre Herndon showed off the physical attributes that has made him the Commodores top lockdown corner over the past three seasons at the school’s pro day workout on March 13th.

Measuring in at 5116/186, Herndon ran a 4.47 forty-yard dash, to go along with a 34.5” vertical jump, 10-6 broad jump, 4.12 short shuttle time, 11.29 in the sixty-yard shuttle and a 6.66 mark in the three-cone drill, which would have placed him fourth amongst all cornerbacks invited to the NFL Combine.

Afterwards, Herndon was put through positional drills by the New York Jets, as he showed off his fancy footwork, including a smooth back pedal and swift change of direction. He was training at the Six1Five combine training facility in Nashville, TN with Super Bowl champion Bernard Pollard leading up to the workout.

“I showed my quickness on the cone drills and that I can run well with my forty time,” Herndon told the NFL Draft Bible. “Hopefully the scouts saw my explosiveness with my broad and vertical, I thought the consistency with my footwork and high pointing skills also stood out.”

A three-year starter, Herndon has proven to stack up well against some of the top competition and he finished in the top five in the SEC with 11 pass deflections this past season. He has served as a staple of dependability for head coach Derek Mason, drawing the top cover assignment on defense each week. Several NFL teams met with him following the workout, including the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and New England Patriots, according to our sources.

Over 20 NFL scouts were in attendance, including the Detroit Lions, Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Director of Football Operations Shelton Quarles and Tennessee Titans GM Jon Robinson. Herndon has been invited to the Titans local pro day on March 13th.
