Justin Jefferson wasn’t the only LSU pass catcher tot post impressive NFL combine numbers as former tight end Stephen Sullivan also had a strong showing in Thursday’s workouts.

Sullivan ran the second fastest 40-yard dash of the tight ends at the combine clocking a 4.66.

He also tallied the second highest vertical jump with 36.5 inches and the second longest broad jump, 123 inches, of all the tight ends in attendance.  

Sullivan played both tight end and receiver at LSU. He caught 46 passes for 712 yards and three touchdowns during his career. The former Donaldsonville standout said at the Reese's Senior Bowl in January that most teams saw him fitting best at tight end on the next level.
