NDSU QB Lance in Friday pro day focus

March 11, 2021

NDSU QB Lance focus of Friday pro day sked … The attention of much of the NFL turns to Fargo, North Dakota tomorrow where North Dakota State QB Trey Lance will throw during the Bisons’ pro day. As we have noted in the past, often who attends a particular pro day can be as revealing as how the player performs. And a star-studded cast of NFL execs whose teams have high picks is currently in Fargo in anticipation of tomorrow’s Bison workout. Indeed, according to senior NFL reporter Albert Breer among those expected to be in attendance include NY Jets’ G.M. Joe Douglas, Atlanta G.M. Terry Fontenot and coach Arthur Smith; Detroit G.M. Brad Holmes and coach Dan Campbell; Carolina G.M. Scott Fitterer and coach Matt Rhule; and Washington G.M. Martin Mayhew. For the record, the Jets have the 2nd pick overall this year, while Atlanta picks 4th, Detroit 7th and Carolina 8th suggesting that in general the league has a pretty good grade on Lance as teams generally don’t send senior execs, especially in the middle of a pandemic, to see players they don’t already have highly rated. Of course, those who are not senior NFL execs can watch along as the NFL Network plans to provide live coverage of both the North Dakota State and Oklahoma pro days tomorrow beginning at Noon ET.
