Besides the NFL Scouting Combine that was held last week in Indianapolis, players will also get a chance to improve their combine scores, improve their draft stock, and impress scouts at their respective college’s pro day. This is also normally when quarterbacks decide to throw because they get to throw to familiar receivers. Pro Day Dates were found via

Pitt-March 2: DT Aaron Donald

Auburn-March 4: OT Greg Robinson

Buffalo-March 4: LB Khalil Mack

Texas A&M-March 5:  OT Jake Matthews, WR Mike Evans, QB Johnny Manziel

Mizzou-March 6: CB E.J. Gaines, DE Kony Ealy, LB Michael Sam

These are just some of the more notable college pro day workouts for the more notable players. How a player does at their college’s pro day won’t dramatically change their draft stock, but if they do extremely well or completely tank, it could have an effect.
