2014 NFL Draft: What we learned from Friday's pro days


If you overlooked Friday's slate of pro days while watching Mercer upset Duke in the NCAA Tournament, we don't blame you. For NFL scouting departments, however, there's no such thing as overlooking pro days this time of year.

It was a light day, but to get you caught up, here's an overview of what happened at pro days Friday.

» Tracking teams' interest in top prospects

Vanderbilt: Chip Kelly, Titans stop by

Big draw: WR Jordan Matthews
Don't forget: CB Andre Hal
Notable attendees: Eagles coach Chip Kelly, Titans general manager Ruston Webster and coach Ken Whisenhunt
The skinny: New Commodores coach Derek Mason will have to keep the team's momentum going without a few players who will make it to the NFL this May. The focus on Friday was undoubtedly on Matthews, who stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. He turned in a solid day, according to Gil Brandt.

West Virginia: Plenty of interest in Sims

Big draw: RB Charles Sims
Don't forget: DE Will Clarke
Notable attendees: Representatives from 24 teams
The skinny: There were not as many teams in Morgantown as there were a year ago with the draw of Tavon Austin and Geno Smith among others. This year it was Sims who was in the spotlight and he looked good by all accounts doing only field drills. End Will Clarke went through a number of drills to showcase his versatility in case teams want to make him an outside linebacker. Former Mountaineers running back Noel Devine turned a few heads by running an unofficial 40-yard dash in the 4.3-second range.

Other Friday pro days: Missouri Western, Northwest Missouri State, Stony Brook

Coming up Monday: Iowa, N.C. State, Maine
