The bad news is that I didn’t get any Pro Day reports out yesterday or most of today. The good news is that when I finally got time to start looking I found a very good amount of information. Have at it:
The Jaguars had a very noticable showing at the Boise State Pro Day on Thursday. Not only did offensive coordinator, Dirk Koetter, run the wide receiver drills at the workout, the Jags also sent a secondary coach to watch safety Jeron Johnson.
The man himself, Gene Smith, was at the Central Florida Pro Day on Wednesday. Among the prospects at the work out was LB Bruce Miller who has already received interest from the Jaguars.
The Jaguars were one of seven teams that attended the South Dakota State Pro Day on Thursday. Also in attendance were the Packers, Chiefs, Cowboys, Vikings, Jets and Buccaneers. It was reported by Aaron Wilson of National Football Post that these seven teams attended SDSU DB/KR Cole Brodie’s workout, but with other prospects at the workout as well, I’m not going to put Brodie on the interests list quite yet.
All 32 teams attended the South Florida Pro Day on Thursday. Most were likely there to watch DT Terrell McClain who is projected to be drafted in the 4th or 5th round.
The Jaguars were one of 11 teams at the Tennessee State Pro Day, headlined by a relatively unknown linebacker, Sidney Tarver. Also in attendance were the Ravens, Bears, Giants, Browns, Texans, Raiders, Titans, Chargers, 49ers and Broncos. With that kind of interest, it wouldn’t be that surprising to see Tarver get drafted.
The Southern Illinois Pro Day was headlined by CB Korey Lindsey-Woods, a player that the Jaguars have already shown interest in. There were 10 teams in attendance including the Jaguars, Jets, Bears, Cardinals, Colts, Ravens, Browns, Titans, Rams and Falcons.
The Jaguars were in attendance for the Middle Tennessee State Pro Day on Thursday. It’s unlikely that MTSU sees any players get drafted this season, but they do have a couple of safeties, Kevin Brown and Jeremy Kellum, that could find themselves in training camps.
Now for the pro days that the Jaguars didn’t go to:
The Eagles were the only team in attendance for the Drake Pro Day and the Patriots were the only team at the Maine Pro Day.
UNLV drew attendance from the Chiefs, Giants and Chargers.
Texas State saw scouts from the Panthers, Texans and Raiders.
The New Mexico Pro Day saw five teams in attendance: the Cardinals, Jets, Raiders, Colts and Saints.
North Colorado drew the Titans, Bills and Broncos
Central Connecticut State ran their pro day in a different kind of manner, inviting prospects from a few schools for a joint pro day of sorts. Five teams showed up to watch three CCSU prospects, two Sacred Heart prospects, two Yale prospects and a Florida International prospect. The Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Seahawks and Panthers showed up for the pro day.
Massachusetts doesn’t have the Vladimir Ducasse kind of prospect of last year that drew the interest of scouts for the UMass Pro Day, but they were still able to bring in six teams for their pro day. The Chargers, Eagles, Saints, Panthers, Patriots and Falcons showed up.
