COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Defensive back Coryell Judie finished with just 22 tackles last season after missing almost half of Texas A&M's games with a hamstring injury.

Judie, who was expected to be one of A&M's top defensive players in 2011, worked out for NFL scouts on Wednesday at the school's pro day, hoping his speed and athleticism would help them look past his injury-plagued college career.

He says the adversity he faced at Texas A&M made him stronger and he's encouraged that several teams have shown interest.

Judie was one of 13 Aggies who worked out. Projected first-round pick quarterback Ryan Tannehill is recovering from foot surgery and won't work out for scouts until later this month.
