Northern Iowa pro day

Both of Northern Iowa’s legit NFL prospects had really good pro day workouts. OT Spencer Brown, who measured in at a rangy 6-8.5, 311 with 34.75 inch arms, tested very well for a player that size. He put up 29 reps in the bench press and then ran a very athletic 40 in the 4.9-flat range, while his… Read More »

Trade gives Dolphins premium pick lead

Trades move Dolphins up in total picks count … Because the major components changing hands in yesterday’s monster opening round deals involving Miami, San Francisco and Philadelphia were first round picks in 2022 and 2023, there wasn’t much change in the overall draft capital of the three teams. Once the smoke had cleared, Miami did add a 2021… Read More »

Cards get late Vikes pick for C Cole

Cards get late Vikes pick for C Cole … Amid all the hoopla yesterday surrounding the two monster first-round trades engineered by Miami, there actually was a 3rd trade, although no where near as seismic. Arizona sent C Mason Cole to Minnesota in exchange for a 6th round pick, #223 overall. Cole was a 3rd round pick by… Read More »

Virginia Tech pro day

NFL scouts were really looking forward to this year’s Va Tech pro day in anticipation of a truly freakish work out by Hokies’ star CB Caleb Farley, however, that came to naught when he had to pull out after undergoing minor back surgery earlier this month. Okay, so let’s check out OT Christian Darrisaw, another Virginia Tech player… Read More »

Western Michigan pro day

In a draft year loaded at WR one would not normally expect one of the hotter receivers to be a 5-8 guy from the MAC but these are definitely not normal times. And Western Michigan WR D’Wayne Eskridge is one of the hotter receivers out there after a solid performance at this year’s Senior Bowl and he didn’t… Read More »

Tennessee pro day

Both of Tennessee OG Trey Smith and WR Josh Palmer had very business-like workouts at the Vols’ pro day. Neither was spectacular, but they managed to check off all the boxes. Smith measured in at a robust 6-5.5 and 321 pounds, posted 32 reps in the BP, had a 31-inch vertical and ran the 40 in the mid-5.1… Read More »

Ole Miss WR Moore rips pro day

Ole Miss WR Moore rips pro day … Somebody must have juiced the water today as there were some really outstanding pro day performances across the country. We already reported on the Penn State numbers but Mississippi WR Elijah Moore was just as good at the Rebels on-campus workout. Moore wasn’t all that big at just 5-9.5 and… Read More »

Penn State pro day

Unfortunately, If a word could describe today’s pro day at Penn State that word would be ‘WOW’ as there were some very impressive performances. LB Micah Parsons, for example, made a top ten statement with an ‘official’ 4.39 40 clocking after measuring in at 6-3, 246. Parsons also had an impressive 3-cone drill time of 6.89 seconds, along… Read More »

Michigan State pro day

All 32 teams were represented at the Michigan State pro day, but they probably didn’t see a whole lot to get excited about. At least DT Naquon Jones, one of two former Spartans who were invited to the combine, at least has prototype size. Jones measured in at 6-3.5, 313 with 33-inch arms, but only ran the 40… Read More »

Southern Cal pro day

It was of disappointing day son balance for G/T Alijah Vera-Tucker at the USC pro day. He was actually a little taller than expected at 6-4.5, 308, but his arms at just a tad over 32-inches are very very short for an OL at any position. And neither of Vera-Tucker’s vertical (32 inches) nor long jumps (8-10) were… Read More »

Iowa State pro day

Approximately two dozen teams had reps at the Iowa State pro day. And while there were 11  guys working out, the Cyclone most NFL teams would like to get their hands on – RB Breece Hall, who led the country in rushing as a freshman last fall – wasn’t. As a consolation prize, the scouts in attendance did… Read More »

Nebraska pro day

The Huskers likely won’t have anyone drafted until the 3rd day of the upcoming draft, although CB Dicaprio Bootle at least worked out like a higher rated prospect at the team’s pro day earlier today. Bootle had a 36.5-inch vertical and a 10-6 long jump, while breaking the 4.4 mark in the 40 with an unofficial 4.38 clocking.… Read More »

Alabama pro day

WRs Smith, Waddle, others sit out; Surtain stars at Tide pro day… Not surprisingly, all 32 teams had reps at the Alabama today. The crowd of NFL personnel people included G.M.s Brandon Beane of Buffalo, Jacksonville’ s Trent Baalke; Rick Spielman of Minnesota, and Martin Mayhew of Washington, along with Tennessee G.M. Jon Robinson AND head coach Mike… Read More »

After FA signing frenzy what do the Giants do at #11

Not surprisingly, in the wake of the Giants signing first WR Kenny Golladay, and then CB Adoree Jackson, two of the top free agents on the market, earlier this week, we’ve had a bunch of emails asking who we think the Giants will now be taking with the 11th pick overall at the 2021 draft, now just 37… Read More »

Tide stars warming up for pro day

Tide stars warming up for pro day … From the moment the pro day schedule was confirmed the date that just about every team red-circled was March 23rd when national champion Alabama would be on the field for their workout. Indeed, expect about as big a crowd as possible tomorrow when the Tide prospects do their thing. And… Read More »

Colorado pro day

The Buffs have at least a couple of players likely to be drafted this coming April in veteran OT Will Sherman and DE Mustafa Johnson. Sherman only measured in at 6-3, 300 today which likely means he’ll have to kick inside to play at the next level, although he’ll give some deep depth at OT. Sherman, though, tested… Read More »

Colorado State pro day

The one thing we can say about WR Warren Jackson’s pro day at Colorado State was that he didn’t have to worry about talking it up on the bench as he was the only former Ram to be working out. For now we know that Jackson, who had 77 receptions for over 1,100 yards and 8 TDs in… Read More »

Missouri pro day

All but three NFL teams were represented at the Missouri, the large majority of which were there to see Tigers’ ILB Nick Bolton. And Bolton, who measured in at a stout 5-11, 237, didn’t disappoint as he ran a reported 4.60 40 while posting 24 reps in the bench press. While Bolton did pretty much was expected, unheralded… Read More »

Florida State pro day

It was kind of a mixed bag at the FSU pro day. On the one hand several former Noles at least held serve during their workout. CB Asante Samuel, for example, ran pretty well with a 40-clocking in the mid-4.4 range; he also had a solid 35-inch vertical and decent times of 4.13 in the short shuttle and… Read More »

Iowa pro day

It was kind of hit or miss at the Iowa pro day with solid performances and some not so solid. Hard to imagine, for example, that All-America DT Daviyon Nixon did himself any harm today. The Hawkeyes best prospect for the upcoming draft measured in at 6-3, 313 and ran a sub-5-flat 40 with a very quick 10-yard… Read More »

‘Select’ fans, media to be allowed to attend draft

‘Select’ fans, players to be allowed to attend draft … The NFL just its released its formal plans for the 2021 draft in Cleveland which gets underway in just 38 days. Unlike last year, when the event was almost entirely virtual, a select number of fans and top prospects will be allowed to attend. Each team will be… Read More »

FA signings could impact top ten picks

FA signings could impact top ten picks … There have been a lot of free agent signings around the NFL since the new football year kicked off earlier this week, although until this weekend none appeared likely to have much impact on the early picks at the 2021 draft which is now just 39 days away. That may… Read More »

Grambling pro day

Unfortunately, it has been a while since Grambling was a major player at the draft. Indeed, the program has had only 4 players selected since the turn of the century including just one in the past 13 years. However, GSU does have a chance to get on the board next month as C/G David Moore, who was a… Read More »

Charleston pro day

In normal times, the pro day at DII Charleston probably wouldn’t even merit a footnote. However, these are not normal times, and this year Charleston has a legit prospect in WR Michael Strachan, a DII All-American in 2019 when he had 78 receptions for over 1,300 yards and 19 TDs in just 11 games. Strachan certainly passed the… Read More »

South Alabama pro day

Interesting pro day at South Alabama where NFL scouts saw pretty much what they expected from ILB Riley Cole, the Jaguars’ leading tackler (with 96) who got a home-town invite to this year’s Senior Bowl. Cole, who measured in at 6-2.5, 240, tested about as expected as he ran a couple of respectable 4.72s in the 40 and… Read More »
