Both Andre Ellington and DeAndre Hopkins turned in impressive performances Sunday during their workouts for scouts at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, though Ellington was hampered by a pulled hamstring in the 40-yard dash.

Ellington tweaked his hamstring while running a respectable time of 4.61 seconds.

Ellington, who is considered to be among the top five running backs in this year's draft, posted top-15 'top performances' in the broad jump, in which he was sixth among running backs with a mark of 10 feet, 2 inches, and in the vertical jump, in which he was 12th with a mark of 34.0 inches.

Hopkins posted 10th-place marks among wide receivers in the bench press, with 15 repetitions, and in the vertical jump with a mark of 36.0 inches.

Hopkins had a time of 4.57 seconds in the 40-yard dash and 4.50 in the 20-yard shuttle.

Top marks among wide receivers included Texas A&M's Marquise Goodwin, with a 40-yard dash of 4.27; Missouri's T.J. Moe, who led the field in the bench press (26 reps), the 20-yard shuttle (3.96) and the 60-yard shuttle (6.53); Virginia Tech's Marcus Davis with a 39.5 vertical jump; and Tennessee's Justin Hunter with an 11-4 broad jump.

Top performers among running backs were posted by Auburn's Onterrio McCalebb with a time of 4.34 in the 40; Wake Forest's Tommy Bohanan, with 36 reps in the bench press; Texas A&M's Christine Michael, with a vertical jump of 43 inches; and LSU's Michael Ford with a broad jump of 10-10.
