Former Auburn RB Ben Tate turned in the third-fastest 40 time at the NFL combine.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Ben Tate doesn't have any regrets about
his efforts leading up to the NFL draft.

The former Auburn running back had a strong performance at the
NFL combine and said Wednesday that he thinks he did his best
throughout the process. Tate is projected as a likely second- or
third-round pick when the draft begins on Thursday.

He says he's calm about the draft but would probably get nervous
late Thursday and early Friday.

Tate will watch the draft with family in Brandywine, Md. Fans
will be able to follow his reactions live on video streamed through
his Facebook fan page.

Auburn running backs coach Curtis Luper says Tate is "built for
the National Football League."

Tate ran for 1,362 yards as a senior and is fifth on Auburn's
all-time rushing list.
