We're back for another round of 2011 NFL Pro Days as we move towards the NFL Draft. Today's Pro Days include Georgia, Iowa State, Mississippi, Nevada, and South Dakota State. While Iowa State, Ole Miss and South Dakota State do have some players of note (namely defensive tackle Jerrell Powe), Georgia and Nevada are where the biggest scouting parties will be held.

Georgia is on every scout's radar because of wide receiver A.J. Green. Additionally, OLB Justin Houston, OG Clint Boling, ILB Akeem Dent, and FB Shaun Chapas (Scouts Inc's No. 2 fullback) all bring something to the table today. I mention all these players because will be carrying the Georgia NFL Pro Day beginning at 7am pacific. ESPN's Cassidy Hubbarth and David Pollack will be covering the workouts. The 49ers might look at several Georgia Bulldogs, but things could get particularly interesting if A.J. Green somehow slips down past the top six picks.

The Nevada Pro Day is a big deal because quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be putting on a display for scouts. He reportedly had a strong workout for the 49ers last week so it will be interesting to see what today brings for Kaepernick. In the coming days I'll actually have an updated scouting report on Kaepernick. I'll have a lot more details, but the scouting report looks at Kaepernick as potentially a taller Aaron Rodgers. The individual who is putting together this scouting report has 40+ years experience working with the NFL. There's plenty to come, but I thought I'd tease it with that. I'll be getting the report after today's Pro Day, so hopefully I'll have something by the end of this week or beginning of next week.
