INDIANAPOLIS — Cornerback Deandre Baker was the headliner for Georgia football on Sunday, sharing a message about coming back for his senior season that Kirby Smart will likely pass along.
Baker made it clear he never second-guessed his decision to return for his senior year and improve himself in his second year as a starter.
The majority of Baker’s testing will take place on Monday, but on Sunday he pumped out 14 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press, one of the least important measures for a cornerback.
Senior defensive end Jonathan Ledbetter went through the bulk of his testing on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Ledbetter ran a 5.14-second time in the 40 yard dash, 23rd best of the 30 defensive linemen who ran at the combine this year. The 6-foot-4, 280-pound Ledbetter also had a 108-inch broad jump, a 26.5 vertical jump and did 22 repetitions on the bench press.
It was the day D’Andre Walker was supposed to work out, but a Jan. 23 surgical procedure has him sidelined.
