It's that time of year again, March has begun, and so have pro days. These days are crucial to all players involved, whether it's a prospect who fell flat at the combine or a player who never even received an invite to Indy.

The colleges with pro days today are:

Minnesota
Tennessee-Chattanooga
Troy
Virginia
Wake Forest

The prospect I was looking forward to performing was Minnesota's halfback, David Cobb. Unfortunately a quad strain will keep him out of Minnesota's pro day. After a combine which featured an unimpressive forty time of 4.81 where he strained his quad. Cobb ended up sitting out the drill portion. On the year Cobb rushed for 1,629 yards and 14 touchdowns.

Cobb isn't the only NFL ready player for Minnesota, tight end Maxx Williams is an early round option. Williams has decent speed, and should improve upon his combine forty of 4.78 today. Strictly a pass catcher, Williams needs to bulk up and work on blocking, a huge deficiency. His route running is not very sharp either. I consider Williams a tweener right now.

Virginia features an intriguing pass rusher in OLB Eli Harold. At 247 lbs, Harold may need to add some weight and muscle to his frame for success at the next level. His 4.60 forty time at the combine displayed his athleticism and potential as a 6'4" outside linebacker.

Wake Forest has a potential first round cornerback in Kevin Johnson. Besides a so-so forty time of 4.52, Johnson had a great combine in every other category. Posting a 41.5 inch vertical, an 10.10 foot broadjump, and a 3.89 20 yard shuttle. If Johnson can improve his forty time, it could solidify his round one status.

Pro days for Tuesday include Auburn, James Madison, New Mexico State, Northwestern, Pittsburgh, Sam Houston State, and Tuskegee.
