Heading To University Of Minnesota Pro Day

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 10, 2010 – 7:54 am

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.

    I just saw that the Browns are trying to trade Brady Quinn, in regards to that I think it would be a nice swap if we gave them Sage Rosenfels for Quinn. Any thoughts??

    I don’t think the Browns would trade Quinn for Rosenfels.

    Sage is much better than Brady Quinn will ever be.

    It doesn’t look at all like the Browns are interested in a QB for QB trade. I just pulled up an article which points out that even after Quinn is gone they will still have a surplus of QBs. It looks like the biggest holes in the Browns team are Wide Receiver, Outside Linebacker, Cornerback and Inside Linebacker. The only area we have any trading leeway there is WR, and IF Quinn is a decent enough QB (I have no knowledge of his skills) I would be glad to trade away Berrian for him. Berrian just hasn’t been fitting in well with the organization since we got him. Outside of that 99 yard TD from Frerrotte, he hasn’t done much compared to the expectations set on him. Besides, we already seem to be content with Rice and Harvin as the starters, and we have some speedy guys that I would like to see more out of than we did last year, including Jaymaar Johnson and Derius Reynaud, I’m also sure that everybody wants to see whether Greg Lewis was a one-hit-wonder, or if he can become the real deal.

    I think you have to give Berrian more credit than that. Look at his total receiving yards in 2008 and also his yards per catch that season.
