Conley, who had a decent career for the Bulldogs, ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds, which was tied for third best among receivers. He had a 45-inch vertical, which was three inches better than any other receiver. His broad jump on 11-feet, 7-inches was better than the rest of the receivers by seven inches.
Both the vertical jump and the broad jump were combine records for a wide receiver.
He also did 18 reps of the 225-pound bench press, which was fourth among wide receivers.
Conley, who was slowed by a shoulder injury, had 36 catches for 657 yards as a senior. He had just one 100-yard game, with 128 against Arkansas. He was SEC scholar-athlete of the year, but didn’t even honorable mention all-SEC.
Before this week, Conley might have been best known for releasing a great Star Wars fan film.
"Chis Conley is putting on a show," Mike Mayock said on NFL Network. “I don’t know much about him on tape because he’s off the radar a little bit, a lot of these teams should do their homework on this kid.”
Going into the scouting combine, Conley was considered the 37th ranked receiver and a seventh-rounder or undrafted free agent by nfldraftscout.com.
