More Columns >

Between the NFL Scouting Combine and the draft, NFL coaches and scouts -- not to mention the prospects themselves -- turn their attention to the various college pro day workouts. These are not as all-encompassing as the combine, but they are important enough for the key decision-makers in the league to travel around the country for more than a month to watch the talent up close and personal. senior analyst Gil Brandt will have sources at each of these workouts, and this pro day page will be updated with his reports daily. Schools will be added as dates and sites become known.
