INDIANAPOLIS — Former University of Toledo wide receiver and Springfield graduate Eric Page logged the best time in the 20-yard shuttle run among all receivers at the NFL Combine.

Page finished the drill, which tests an athlete's lateral quickness and explosion, in 3.98 seconds. He tied for top honors with Michigan's Junior Hemingway.

Page went through seven drills Sunday and had mixed results. Of the roughly 40 receivers who competed in each event, he ranked 30th in the 40-yard dash (4.60 seconds), 19th in bench press (15 repetitions), last in the vertical jump (30.5 inches), 33rd in broad jump (112 inches), 15th in cone drill (6.95 seconds) and 11th in 60-yard shuttle (11.47 seconds).

Page, a record breaking receiver for the Rockets, was measured at 5-foot-9 and 186 pounds.
