Ex-Cats show their stuff at NFL Combine in Indy

The NFL Combine wrapped up Tuesday in Indianapolis. Here's a look at how the five former University of Kentucky players fared:

Micah Johnson: Johnson measured at 6-foot-1, 258 pounds and, not surprisingly, was impressive on the bench press. His 31 repetitions at 225 pounds was third among linebackers. However, Johnson ran the slowest 40-yard dash time for linebackers at 4.99. Johnson, who has been recovering from a knee injury suffered in the Music City Bowl, is expected to run again for scouts at UK's Pro Day on March 10.

John Conner: Conner (5-11, 246) had a good showing in Indianapolis. He ran a faster-than-expected 4.72 40-yard dash, a good time for a fullback. His 24 reps in the bench press were third among running backs, and his 20-yard shuttle run (4.29) was ninth among running backs.

Trevard Lindley: Lindley was measured and weighed at 5-foot-11, 183 pounds at the combine, and his 38.5-inch vertical jump was sixth among cornerbacks. Lindley also did well in the 60-yard shuttle. His 11.17 time ranked fourth among corners. Lindley's best 40 time was 4.53, which put him in the middle of the pack.

Corey Peters: Measured and weighed in at 6-3, 300. He ran the 40 in 5.01, a decent time for a defensive tackle. Peters didn't participate in the bench press because he's still recovering from a partially torn labrum suffered in the bowl game.

Sam Maxwell: Maxwell weighed and measured (6-2, 246) at the Combine but didn't participate in drills because he is recovering from surgery to repair a torn labrum.
