Quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs went through the paces for scouts Saturday in seven different drills.

Waller measured out pretty well when he went through his drills and even was tops in his group for one of the drills.

Waller officially measured in at 6-foot-6, 238 pounds at the combine with 33 1/4 inch arms and nine inch hands.

He ran his 40-yard dash in 4.46 seconds, displayed a 37.0 inch vertical leap, and broad jumped 120.5 inches or 10 ft and a 1/2 inch.

When it came to his bench press pushed up 225 pounds 12 times.

When it came to the drills Waller held his own.

He completed the three-cone drill in 7.07 seconds, completed the 20-yard shuttle in 4.25 seconds, and finished the 60-yard shuttle in 11.35 seconds which was a combine best for receiver this year.

Mike Mayock during the NFL Network broadcast referred to Waller as “raw” because of the type of offense that Georgia Tech runs.

Even with that very cliché assessment, Waller’s size and display at the combine should be enough for him to garner attention as he continues to go through the draft process leading into the NFL Draft.

Waller has the size and speed to be a Julius Thomas or Shannon Sharpe type of tight end, where he can lineup on the offensive line and also go out into the slot.

There are going to be quite a few teams that will be willing to take a chance on a 6-foot-6 receiver with versatility.

Now is the part where pro days and private workouts will determine his official draft status come draft time.

The NFL Draft will be held from April 30th thru May 2nd in Chicago.
