— Kenny Stills wowed scouts at last month's NFL Scouting Combine with his 4.38 effort in the 40-yard dash.

At Oklahoma's Pro Day last week, Stills caught passes for quarterback Landry Jones.

“I feel like a lot of people, including myself, have seen me drop balls here and there,” Stills said when asked what he wanted to show scouts. “Just to show that I can catch everything and that my routes are pretty crisp and that I was fast and explosive off the ball.”

Stills caught 82 passes for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns last season as a junior. He chose to skip his senior season for entrance in the 2013 NFL Draft.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., currently ranks Stills as the 13th-best receiver prospect available.

Stills spoke with reporters after his Pro Day performance about several topics, including his future and his answers to tough questions from NFL executives regarding his character.

You were out at OU's spring practice coaching guys up Tuesday. Have you enjoyed this process so far?

“I'm definitely enjoying it. I miss the guys a lot. A lot. I'm texting these guys 24/7. I was back at practice trying to help them, and I felt like I should have been in pads with them.”

What's draft night going to be like for you?

“Talking with my parents about draft night, we're just going to hang out. I'd like to just be chilling and playing video games to get my mind off of it, so anything to keep me away from staring at the TV.”
