 Draft Scout Rex Burkhead News
09/19/14 - RB Rex Burkhead (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Tennessee Titans.
08/17/14 - RB Rex Burkhead left Saturday's game with a knee injury.
04/28/13 - A closer look at the Bengals' picks: Round 6/190 - Rex Burkhead, RB, 5-10, 214, Nebraska...Finished fifth in school history with 3,329 yards but was limited this past season due to a sprained knee and played in only eight games. He is a running back much like Brian Leonard, who is now with Tampa Bay, in that he can do whatever is asked. He will also have an impact on special teams. - The Sports Xchange
03/16/13 - 2013 Nebraska Pro Day: Representatives from 12 NFL teams were on hand for Nebraska’s pro day on Thursday, which took place indoors and on field turf. Pittsburgh Steelers defensive backs coach Carnell Lake and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker coach Paul Guenther were among the coaches on hand.

Rex Burkhead, RB (5-10 1/8, 210 pounds) - The Nebraska rusher posted times of 4.66 and 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He put together a strong workout and showed scouts that he has an exceptionally good pair of hands. Burkhead wasn’t invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, but his performance showed he has promise to play at the next level. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com

03/08/13 - 2013 Nebraska Pro Day: In front of a handful of NFL scouts, Nebraska seniors omitted from the NFL scouting combine got a little more clarification on where they stand in the upcoming NFL Draft in April. The extra info doesn’t mean much though, according to Will Compton. “There’s so much wild stuff that happens,” he said. “(NFL Draft analyst Mike) Mayock and them are right up until about pick six, after that, everybody’s shocked.”

Thursday’s pro day gave Nebraska’s graduated seniors and two former Huskers a chance to show off in front of scouts and assistant coaches from eight NFL teams. Compton said scouts informed him he helped himself quite a bit, after 24 bench press reps of 225 pounds and a 40-yard dash time below 4.6 seconds. “I was kind of nervous about that,” Compton said. “As long as I beat what everybody else out there thought. When I hit (4.54) today I was ecstatic.” Multiple scouts including the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders spent time talking to Burkhead, who impressed in running back drills as well as pass-catching exercises. - Grant Muessel, The Daily Nebraskan
