Oklahoma State

All 32 teams were represented at the Cowboys’ pro day, however, most of the NFL’s big hitters who were at the Oklahoma workout the previous day  including Denver G.M. John Elway didn’t hang around for the Oklahoma State pro day and instead went to Los Angeles to check out UCLA QB Josh Rosen. That had to be a… Read More »


A total of 27 teams, plus several from the CFL, were at the Nebraska pro day where strong-armed QB Tanner Lee went through a scripted 45-pass workout. Lee completed 41 of those passes including some artistic long throws. However, there’s never been much doubt about Lee’s arm strength and arm-talent. His issues have more to do with poise… Read More »

Virginia Tech

While most of the national pro day attention was on Oklahoma today, several teams were focused on other spots. Oakland G.M. Reggie Mckenzie, for example, passed on the chance to visit Norman and instead was at the Virginia Tech workout where he was no doubt checking out rising Hokies’ LB Tremaine Edmunds. And that makes sense because the… Read More »

Big turnout at OU pro day

Big turnout at OU pro day … Part of the fun of tracking pro days around the country is seeing who shows up from various NFL teams at which player’s pro days. Today, for example, there was a huge turnout at the Oklahoma pro day where QB baker Mayfield was the featured performer. Not surprisingly, all 32 NFL… Read More »


The big story at the Oklahoma pro day, of course, was Baker Mayfield’s scripted workout in front of a big crowd of pro personnel people including G.M.s John Elway of Denver and the Jets’ Mike Maccagnan. Mayfield went through a 70-pass scripted workout that according to early returns did nothing to hurt his chances. Mayfield, of course, wasn’t… Read More »

Wake Forest

As many as 29 NFL teams were in attendance at the Wake Forest pro day where rising FS Jesse Bates was the star attraction, although he stood largely on his combine performance. For the record, Pittsburgh, including head coach Mike Tomlin, got the prized evening before dinner date with Bates. Unfortunately, the Deamon Deacons best prospects other than… Read More »


Just about every NFL team (29 out of 32) was represented at the Vanderbilt pro day. Rising OLB Oren Burks, who had a phenomenal combine, stood on his numbers from Indianapolis, but did do some positional drills. At the same time, RB Ralph Webb, who was not at the combine, had a solid day as his unofficial 40… Read More »


Fully 16 of 32 NFL teams had reps at the Ft Hays State pro day including defensive line coaches from Cincinnati, Philadelphia and the NY Jets. They were there to see DT Nathan Shepherd, a Canadian, who is currently one of the hottest names in the 2018 draft class. Shepherd stood on his combine numbers, but of note… Read More »


Illinois only had 4 players worked out at the team’s pro day, none of whom are considered more than fringe prospects. Veteran G/T Christian DiLauro, who started 38 careers games, though, had a decent day at the Illini pro day as he ran in the 5.05 seconds area for the 40, had a 32-inch vertical and a 9-3… Read More »


Army OT Brett Toth couldn’t work out at the combine because of an ankle injury, but ran very well at the Army pro day where he reportedly ran the 40 in under 5.10 seconds. On the other hand, though, Toth measure in at only 6-6, 287 and disappointed in the bench press with 16 reps which would have… Read More »


A baker’s dozen NFL teams showed up at the Princeton pro day where record-setting QB Chad Kanoff was the featured performer. And Kanoff didn’t disappoint as he completed 50 of 53 passes in a scripted workout. Kanoff measured in at 6-4, 220 and ran the 40 in 4.90 seconds. Kanoff still probably won’t be drafted but could be… Read More »

Sunday morning draft thots

The start of the new NFL football year is still four days, but there’s already a buzz growing that is likely going to have some major implications for the 2018 draft which is now barely 45 days away. And nobody was buzzing more over the past couple of days than Cleveland. Of course, nothing can be formally announced… Read More »


Not a whole lot to get excited about at the Rutgers pro day. NFL personnel people, though, were looking forward to seeing star WR/KR Janarion Grant run. Grant had emerged as one of the best return men in college football early in his career, but struggled in 2017 after suffering a knee injury. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear as… Read More »


No surprise here, but there was a good crowd at the Auburn pro day. Most were there likely to watch RB Kerryon Johnson run the 40 after he opted not to run at the combine. Johnson’s pro day run was okay as he was timed unofficially in 4.54 seconds which would have been in the top ten at… Read More »

Washington State

Reportedly 27 teams had reps at the Washington State workout. Two-time All-America OG Cody O’Connell, who was a surprising non-combine invite, measured in at a mammouth 6-8, 352 and managed 28 reps in the bench press. Unfortunately, the big issue for O’Connell was well he moves and there isn’t much to report on his times at the workout.… Read More »


There was a pretty good turnout at the Colorado pro day where 29 teams were represented including a full contingent from Denver including John Elway and head coach Vance Joseph. The star of the day for the Buffs was RB Phil Lindsay (no relation) who had an unofficial 40-clocking of under 4.40 seconds while managing 14 reps in… Read More »


March 7 The annual pre-draft pro day schedule got underway with a bang earlier today with a workout at national champion Alabama. Needless to say all 32 teams were represented at the Tide workout with a total of 80 NFL personnel people in attendance. That included a half dozen General Managers including Bob Quinn of Detroit, Pittsburgh’s Kevin… Read More »

COMBINE Wrap-Up 2018

Bet at least a few of you wondered where I was during the Combine weekend. I would tell you I was indeed watching and thinking about what was going on in Indy. I have all too often made a comment on Twitter about what is happening only to have something happen to totally contradict what I have opined… Read More »

2018 Combine Review: Who Took advantage

Perhaps the #1 takeaway from this year’s scouting combine Indianapolis was that just about all the top prospects that did work out worked out very well. Of course, that starts all with Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, who came to Indianapolis as the consensus top prospect overall, but one not likely to be selected with the first pick… Read More »

2018 Scouting Combine: Saturday review

The clear winner of today’s passing drills was Josh Allen of Wyoming who showed off remarkable arm strength, along with the kind of touch that was often missing during his season with the Cowboys. On the other hand , it appears there were more mixed reviews for UCLA’s Josh Rosen. It was also not hard to be impressed… Read More »
