Over the next month and a half, college football programs all over the country will showcase their NFL prospects at annual pro days. While not a thorough as the scouting combine these workouts help provide final in-person looks at eligible prospects.
Pro days kick off today and continue through April 19. For a complete list of pro days click HERE. The first schools up are: Concordia (Minn.), Minnesota, Ole Miss, and Pittsburgh.
DT RaShede Hageman (6-6, 310lbs) and S Brock Vereen (6-0, 199lbs) are the only two Golden Gophers that figure to be drafted in 2014. Hageman has seen his stock rise after a stellar Senior Bowl and solid combine performance. In fact, Hageman was mocked to the 49ers in Dan Kadar's latest mock draft.
One of the more intriguing prospects to keep an eye on is WR Donte Moncrief. At 6-2, 221 Moncrief posted a fantastic 4.4-forty at last week's combine. He was one of the better testing WRs in Indianapolis last week and is looking to build momentum toward May's draft. His 2012 tape is better than 2013 so there are some questions out there.
Perhaps the most impressive prospect from last week's combine was Aaron Donald. The undersized DT (6-1, 285lbs) ran a blistering 4.68-forty while posting 35 reps in the bench and 32" in the vertical jump. The tape backs up Donald's athleticism and he's all but secured a spot in the top 20.
Devin Street is a 6-3, 198 WR flying low, really low, on teams radar. He quietly had a consistent and productive career at Pitt and seemed to answer questions about top-end speed with a 4.55-forty at the combine. Should the 49ers look to add multiple receivers in 2014, keep an eye on Street in the mid to late rounds.
Tomorrow's pro day list includes: Alabama State, Auburn, Buffalo, Eastern Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, Slippery Rock, and SMU. It will also be the personal pro day for Notre Dame DL Stephon Tuitt.
