Drake London was finally on a practice field Friday in front of NFL scouts to showcase his recovery from a mid-season ankle fracture, but he did not run the 40-yard dash.

The former USC wideout and potential top-10 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft participated in a handful of cone drills and situational passing routes, but did not do perhaps the one thing scouts on hand were most curious about. London’s workout was originally scheduled for April 5 but pushed after he tweaked his hamstring the weekend prior.

London told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine (where he interviewed and took measurements, but didn’t participate in on-field drills) that he had only started running a week prior to the Combine. The recovery process, he said Friday, was painful but his body now “feels better, stronger, faster.”

According to team reporter Keely Eure, London worked out in front of scouts from the San Francisco 49ers, Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, Indianapolis Colts, Washington Commanders, Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets, Detroit Lions, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texas, and Tennessee Titans. ESPN’s Paolo Uggetti reported that Detroit’s senior personnel executive, John Dorsey, was personally in attendance. Detroit has three picks among the first 34, including the second overall and 32nd overall.

Here’s more from London’s pro day:

Questioned on the day, London told reporters that he just wanted to show scouts that his recovery has gone well. If there are questions about his speed, he says to turn on his tape; it’ll show he doesn’t need speed to beat his man to a ball, he said.

A fractured ankle suffered against Arizona on Oct. 30 forced London to miss the final third of USC’s season, and yet he still finished as the Pac-12’s leader in receptions, yardage, 20-plus-yard receptions, and contested catches (per PFF). At the rate London was going before his injury, he would have ended a full season ranked second nationally in receptions and third in yardage.

London also led the country in contested catches, per PFF, registering 19 in eight games. He was on pace for 28; no one else in the country had more than 16.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has London mocked to the New York Jets with the 10th pick in the upcoming draft. The first round begins on Thursday, April 28, at 5 p.m. PT.
