Today is a quiet day for pro days as only one of the six programs hosting scouts competes in a BCS conference. Today's pro days include: Delaware, Florida State, Montana, Murray State, North Carolina-Charlotte, and Sam Houston State.
Florida State will be dominating today's pro day discussion as they put 34 former players on display for over 70 scouts. Last year the 49ers drafted two Seminoles in Tank Carrdine and Nick Moody. Could a few more be on the radar this year?
WR Kelvin Benjamin is probably the one most 49ers fans will be checking in on. The 6-5, 240lb monster will be looking to improve upon his ‘slow' 4.6-forty time at the combine. At the time this post was written, he's already checked in at 242lbs. His catch radius is quite impressive and he'll be an instant impact red-zone threat where ever he ends up.
Cornerback/Safety Lamarcus Joyner will also be working out today but standing on his forty time from the combine. Joyner turned in a solid performance at the combine but was surpassed on the big board by a few corners that really impressed. Time will tell if teams like him at safety or corner; to Joyner it doesn't matter. Check out my scouting report on Joyner.
The Rimington Trophy winner, center Bryan Stork, will compete for the first time since FSU's national championship in January. Stork was at the combine last month but only participated in interviews. He's in the conversation for the first center off the board so scouts will be watching intently.
Aside from the 2013 former Noles, there will be plenty of former players from years prior competing today hoping to land a spot on an NFL roster. One intriguing name is cornerback Greg Reid.
Reid is a former five-star high school All-American who became one of the more electric players at FSU, especially on special teams. A series of run-ins with the law including a few of marijuana arrests led to Reid's dismissal from the program in 2012. Reid transferred to Valdosta State where he tore his ACL before his senior season kicked off. A botched surgery caused him to miss another year of working out and possibly an NFL contract. Finally healthy and looking to show off his skills Reid could be interesting addition via free agency.
Tomorrow pro days pick up with: Baylor, California, Central Florida, Lindenwood, San Jose State, Utah, Virginia Tech, and Western Kentucky.
