Denicos Allen leads 15 under-the-radar pro day risers


Last week, I gave the names of 15 lesser-known players who helped their chances in the draft by putting in impressive workouts at their pro day. That list included potential second-day picks like Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd, Montana linebacker Brock Coyle and SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert.

The 15 players listed below probably aren't in that class. They're likely to be free agents, but they nonetheless put in a lot of hard work after the season and got noticed by teams who watched their pro day workout.

As I mentioned last week, there were 49 undrafted free agents who made the 53-man roster heading into the 2013 season. The players below might not hear their name called at the draft, but that doesn't mean they won't make it onto a roster, and their pro days certainly helped their cause.

Kenneth Acker, DB, SMU

Denicos Allen, LB, Michigan State

Lonnie Ballentine, FS, Memphis

Zach Bauman, RB, Northern Arizona

Glenn Carson, LB, Penn State

Ryan Eppes, RB, South Florida

Greg Hardin, WR, North Dakota

Torin Harris, DB, USC

Micah Hatfield, WR, Oregon State
