2013 Pro Days Schedule And Analysis
Excerpt: "Between the NFL Scouting Combine and the
2013 NFL Draft, NFL coaches and scouts -- not to mention the prospects themselves -- turn their attention to the various college pro day workouts. These are not as all-encompassing as the combine, but they are important enough for the key decision-makers in the league to travel around the country for more than a month to watch the talent up close and in person.

It appears we may have a lot of interest in Winters
Representatives from 16 NFL teams including offensive line coaches from seven teams gathered at Kent States pro day on March 6, where 12 players worked out. The workout was held indoors, with the 40-yard dash run on a fast track and the drills executed on a standard indoor practice field.
Brian Winters, G (6-foot-3 1/2, 315 pounds) Winters ran the 40 in 5.29 and 5.18 seconds. He had a 4.75-second short shuttle and 7.57-second three-cone drill. He had a 27-inch vertical jump and 8-foot-5 broad jump. Winters was unable to lift on the bench press due to a strained pectoral muscle suffered at the NFL Scouting Combine.
Josh Kline, G (6-2 5/8, 307) Kline ran the 40 in 5.12 and 5.19 seconds. He had a 4.59-second short shuttle and 7.66-second three-cone drill. His vertical was 27 inches and he had a 8-foot-5 broad jump. He performed 25 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Kline who was not invited to the combine could be a possible seventh-round pick.
New York Giants offensive line coach Pat Flaherty conducted the workout that both Winters and Kline participated in.
I am interested to see the results of some of the pro days today. There are a few players that I want to see how they do. Shamarko Thomas has his today. He did awesome at the combine but I think that he can run better, that is the only thing that I am looking to see from him really at the pro day. His other areas he dominated in. Jordan Campbell is going to be at the New Mexico pro day. I am interested to see the numbers he comes up with. I think Ray Ray Armstrong will be at the Miami pro day. There are quite a few players that I am interested to see the results that have their pro days today!
