Individual Workouts

Now that the NFL Scouting Combine is over, several players are preparing to work out individually or at their school's Pro Day. Draft prospects from Tulsa opened the Pro Day schedule on Feb. 27. Dozens of schools will follow suit over the next month.
So pull out your calendars! Here are all of the dates for this year's Pro Days.
* Dates subject to change.

And now that Pro Days have begun, NFL.com draft expert Gil Brandt will deliver the results from every Pro Day. In 2003, we had reports from over 100 schools. Here are this year's results.

Over 150 NFL scouts and coaches were in attendance to watch some of the top prospects in all of college football. Head coaches in attendance include Cincinnati's Marvin Lewis, San Diego's Marty Schottenheimer, New Orleans' Jim Haslett, Atlanta's Jim Mora, Houston's Dom Capers, Jacksonville's Jack Del Rio, the Giants' Tom Coughlin, Arizona's Dennis Green and Washington's Joe Gibbs.

The players performed outdoors on grass. The turf was referred to as "tee box grass," which is similar to the kind of grass in the tee box on a golf course. It was a little windy as well.

DJ Williams running a 4.5 at 250lbs. That 's impressive. I would be ok if we drafted him at #20 if our targeted Wr's are off the board. This guy played BIG in college.

Not having a 2nd round pick really sucks this year. This draft is SO loaded with talent.

What's ironic is that the fastest Cane was a LB (Jarrell Weaver...4.37 average).

He's switching to S. Probably a mid round pick at this point.
