With the NFL Scouting Combine now fully in the rear view mirror, the time has come for college football programs across the country to hold their annual “pro days.”
Pro days are basically another chance for the incoming draft class to show NFL coaches and scouts that they have what it takes to play at the next level. Many of the workouts and drills the athletes participate in are similar to those that are held at the Combine, the difference is that the athletes are working out in a familiar environment with familiar coaches and teammates.
Generally, athletes are expected to perform better at their pro days than they did at the Combine, although some players will parlay a strong Combine performance with another impressive outing at their pro day.
Anyway, the University of Minnesota will hold its pro day today and I’ll be heading to campus in a few minutes to check it out. I’ll have a report later today when I return to Winter Park.
In the meantime, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter – @VikingsFootball. If I have any special notes or observations during today’s event I’ll be tweeting.
