Pro days are coming to a conclusion this week and I know that makes you sad. But fear not my friends, the NFL Draft is just 23 days away!
Florida and Syracuse will hold their pro day today while UTEP will wrap up school pro days on Thursday. Indiana RB Tevin Coleman will be holding his own personal pro day on April 15th.
A lot of attention will be on Florida edge rusher Dante Fowler Jr. and rightfully so. Fowler is arguably the top edge rusher in this year's class. The versatile defender seems to fit in just about any scheme and can pressure the pocket from just about anywhere on the field.
OT D.J. Humphries made the most of his combine performance and put himself on the round one bubble. Humphries is one of the more athletic linemen in the class. He has some durability concerns missing multiple games over the last two years. Teams will probably pay more attention to his medicals as both the tape and metrics show a fringe first round talent.
Syracuse free safety Durrel Eskridge is one of the more underrated defensive back prospects. He probably would have been one of the top safeties in next year's class had he decided to return to school. Still very raw, but at 6-3, 208lbs with 4.63 speed, Eskridge has the natural look and build of an NFL safety. Eskridge has also demonstrated solid ball skills with a knack for forcing turnovers. He has tremendous upside and his value appears to be highest in the late third or early fourth rounds.
As for Tevin Coleman, his personal pro day isn't an ego driven stunt. The Hoosier running back finished the final seven games of the 2014 season with a broken bone in his foot and was still recovering from January surgery at February's Combine. He skipped Indiana's pro day to give himself an extra couple of weeks healing time.
Scouts are no doubt excited to see what a healthy Coleman can do after an impressive 2,036 yard performance in 2014.
