Three Gophers worked out at the NFL Combine in the hope of boosting their draft stocks.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The Gophers' attendees at the NFL Combine have all completed their workouts. De'Vondre Campbell worked out with the linebackers on Sunday, and Eric Murray and Briean Boddy-Calhoun worked out today with the defensive backs. Not much has been said about Murray and Boddy-Calhoun -- both put up solid but not spectacular numbers today -- although Campbell did turn some heads on Sunday after running 4.58 40, third best among linebackers.

Time will tell if their workouts will help or hurt their draft stocks come April.

Here are the measurables from the combine for each player:

Eric Murray
40: 4.49
Vertical: 39.5"
Broad Jump: 10'4''
Bench Press Reps: 15

Briean Boddy-Calhoun
40: 4.47
Vertical: 35.0"
Broad Jump: 10'4''
Bench Press Reps: 10

De'Vondre Campbell
40: 4.58
Vertical: 34.0"
Broad Jump: 9'8''
Bench Press Reps: 16

Here are excerpts from the official write-up from Gopher Sports:

Campbell... was a top performer in the 40-yard dash and also performed well in the vertical jump. Campbell was the third-fastest linebacker at the combine with a time of 4.58. Campbell's vertical jump of 34.0 inches was tied for ninth among linebackers. 

Murray... was a top performer in the vertical jump and also recorded top times in the 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle and broad jump press.
