With the defensive backs having arrived at the NFL scouting combine, Broncos executive John Elway brought in an extra set of eyes — nine- time Pro Bowl safety John Lynch.
Lynch was in the Broncos' suite Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium as quarterbacks, wide receivers and running backs went through their on-field workouts in preparation for the league's April 25-27 draft.
The Broncos were scheduled to meet with several defensive backs individually Sunday and Monday.
"They invited me out," Lynch, a former Bronco, said of the Elway-led Denver group. "It's been good."
Lynch, like Elway a Stanford product, has worked as an analyst on Fox's NFL telecasts. He was a five-time Pro Bowl selection with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a four-time Pro Bowl pick with Denver. He played for the Broncos from 2004-07.
Office safety. T.J. McDonald, a safety from Southern California, has drawn interest from the Broncos. His father, Tim, is a former San Francisco 49ers safety.
The Broncos met with McDonald at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., last month and were scheduled to meet with him again at the scouting combine. He will work out Tuesday at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Other defensive backs the Broncos plan to meet with at the scouting combine include Washington's Desmond Trufant, Utah State's Will Davis and William & Mary's B.W. Webb.
Fast track. Wide receivers blistered the artificial turf at Lucas Oil Stadium, with five turning in sub-4.4 times in the 40-yard dash.
Texas' Marquise Goodwin was clocked in 4.27. West Virginia's Tavon Austin and Texas A&M's Ryan Swope ran 4.34. Oklahoma's Kenny Stills and Texas Christian's Josh Boyce were clocked in 4.38.
