NFL Pro Day on The Plains (updated with video)
Tennessee Titan’s DT Zack Clayton sacks Seattle’s Matt Flynn. Clayton got his chance with the Titans after Auburn’s 2010 Pro Day.
Today is NFL Pro day on The Plains and with Auburn coming off an SEC Championship year, there should be a lot of NFL scouts checking out several Tigers. In fact reports are that all 32 teams will be represented. It will especially be a big day for those who could not make it to the NFL Combine.
None bigger perhaps than for Fullback Jay Prosch, who despite being ranked the No. 3 fullback in the draft was not invited to the combine. Then there is Dee Ford and Chris Davis, both of whom did not get to perform in Indianapolis.
Chris injured his ham string just days before the combine while preparing for the event. And as most know, Ford was held out by the NFL medical staff over concerns about a previous back injury. Coach Malzahn has assured NFL Teams that Dee had no problems with the old injury during the Tigers’ Championship season.
Look for all three to wow the scouts with their skill sets. However, just like Darren Bates in 2013, there will be several others from this class to earn chances with an NFL Club.
Sixteen Tigers will be performing for the scouts; players like Defensive end Nosa Eguae, defensive tackle Kenneth Carter, linebacker Jake Holland, punter Steven Clark, kicker Cody Parkey and defensive backs Ryan White and Ryan Smith.
It should be a fun day for those who participate. The Eyes of Auburn as well as the NFL Scouts will be on all our Tigers at the Auburn Pro Day. Good luck Tigers
