Today's pro day schedule features mostly small schools and unknown prospects, but that doesn't mean there isn't a diamond or two in the rough!
Monday's are rough, so here are a few prospects you can keep an eye on and get you into the swing of things. The Pro Day schedule will start heating up more tomorrow.
Grand Valley State
Matt Armstrong, Center: Armstrong was the first player from Grand Valley State to receive an invite to the NFL Combine. The 6'2" 302 lb prospect is a bit undersized for the position and is likely a late round pick or undrafted free agent. Armstrong won the award for best Center in Division II.
Mason Mills, Quarterback: A quarterback should do well at the college Jim Harbaugh once coached, and Mills put up numbers on par with that of Josh Johnson at San Diego. Mills had a good year, earning him player of the year in the Pioneer Foootball League. He threw for 3,463 yards and 35 touchdowns, while completing 66% of his throws.
Aaron Lynch, Defensive End: Lynch only has two years of college football under his belt, one with Notre Dame in 2011, and this season playing for USF after sitting out a year due to the transfer. When he's been on the field, Lynch has been a threat with his pass rushing and run stopping abilities. With a 6'6" 270 lb frame, Lynch could be used in a variety of ways in the NFL and has versatility to his game. Lynch should be off the board in round three or sooner. The d-lineman put up six sacks and 12.5 tackles for loss this season.
Eric Thomas, Wide Receiver: Thomas secured a Senior Bowl and NFLPA Collegiate Bowl invites earlier this off-season and will hope to have scouts look his way once again today. The wideout had an impressive year in which he had 66 receptions, 993 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
Pro days for tomorrow include Bryant, Connecticut, Iowa State, Jacksonville (Ala.), Kansas State, Michigan State, Temple, Toledo, Tulsa, UCLA.
