Michigan's Khalid Hill wants NFL teams to know he's not just a fullback

ANN ARBOR -- Khalid Hill might have lined up at fullback the final two seasons of his college career. But the outgoing Michigan senior wants NFL teams to know he's not married to the position. "You just try to be as versatile as possible," Hill said Friday in Ann Arbor after Michigan's pro day. "You have to bring many things to the table; you can't just be a one-dimensional guy."

Jarvion Franklin, Darius Phillips and Asantay Brown each had different reasons for why Wednesday was crucial for their pro prospects, but all of them left an impression by day's end. After weighing in a 239 pounds at the NFL Combine in late February, Franklin trimmed down to 231 pounds for WMU's Pro Day, and showed off a much slimmer, speedier athlete, cutting his 40-yard dash time from 4.63 to 4.45 seconds.
