Western Kentucky’s projected first-round pick
was the highlight of a relatively short list of pro day workouts on Monday.
The 6-foot-4, 309 pound Lamp — who checks in as the top guard on NFLDraftScout.com’s board and No. 28th ranked overall prospect — was put through an extensive positional workout Monday by
’ offensive line coach Paul Alexander. The workout took place in front of dozens of scouts representing an estimated 20 NFL teams.
Lamp, a four-year starter and two-time first team All-Conference USA selection at left tackle for the Hilltoppers, lined up at tackle, guard and even center during the workout, delivering snaps to Alexander in an effort to show his positional versatility. He is expected to slide inside to guard or center despite his experience outside at tackle because of shorter-than-ideal arms, which were measured in at 32¼-inch at the combine.
Lamp’s performance Monday continued the positive momentum he has created for himself throughout his senior season — a year which began with a massive test against Alabama and its vaunted and versatile defensive line and continued with impressive showings at the Senior Bowl and in Indianapolis last month, where his 5.0 second time in the 40-yard dash, 34 repetitions of 225 pounds, 7.55 second three-cone time and 9-foot, 11-inch broad jump each ranked among the top scores for offensive line.
Lamp started three games at guard as a redshirt freshman and returned to this position two months ago at the Senior Bowl. His quickness, active hands and core strength stood out against the defensive tackles in Mobile, drawing comparisons to former Notre Dame left tackle turned
Pro Bowl left guard Zach Martin from some talent evaluators.
