05/11/14 - A closer look at the Cowboys' picks: Round 7/231 -- Ben Gardner, DE, 6-4, 262, Stanford...A former team captain who played defensive end in college but could spin down to defensive tackle in the Cowboys 3-4 scheme. First team all Pac-12 in 2013 but saw his season end early because a torn pectoral muscle. It's also why he fell in the draft. Very athletic with 39 1/2 vertical leap. - The Sports Xchange
04/03/14 - Week 3 Pro Days takeaways: Michael Sam shows improvement...4. For those invited to the Combine but deemed medically unable to compete, Pro Days are important. For players snubbed by the Combine selection committee, Pro Days are absolutely critical. As such, the performances from Wyoming quarterback Brett Smith, San Jose State wide receiver Chandler Jones and Stanford defensive end Ben Gardner deserve special recognition here. Scouts from 19 teams traveled to Wyoming to watch Smith, wideout Robert Herron and defensive back Marqueston Huff, the latter two of which performed well at the Senior Bowl and Combine. Smith showed off the athleticism that has earned comparisons to Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel, clocking a 4.51-second 40-yard dash and impressing with his velocity and accuracy during his throwing session. Straight-line speed was very much the goal for Jones in his Pro Day workout and he certainly demonstrated it, registering a pair of sub 4.4 times that are sure to attract plenty of attention from scouts.

Considering that he was an integral component of Stanford's success defensively the past three seasons, Gardner may have been the most shocking of the Combine snubs and he posted the most eye-popping numbers in retaliation, wowing scouts from all 32 NFL teams on March 20 with a 39.5" vertical and 10-2" broad jump after measuring 6-foot-4, 262 pounds. Those numbers would have ranked second and fifth, respectively, among all defensive linemen tested in Indianapolis in 2014. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
