Monday's pro-day recap: Scherff, Grayson impress in workouts

The NFL Scouting Combine has come and gone, and the road to the 2015 NFL Draft has switched over to pro days. College Football 24/7 will be your one-stop shop for information on workouts from Alabama to Yale and everybody in between.

Here's a look at the key takeaways from Monday's pro day action.

Iowa: Scherff works two spots

Big draw:OL Brandon Scherff
Don't forget:DT Carl Davis
Notable attendees:Scouts from 31 NFL teams sent at least one representative.
The skinny:A regular stop on the pro-day circuit for many scouts, Iowa once again attracted a large delegation. Scherff tested more than one would expect for somebody who had a solid battery of tests at the NFL Scouting Combine. He impressively posted a 32-inch vertical jump and also saw drill work at both guard and tackle. Scherff indicated that he is telling teams that he does not care what spot they put him at. Davis put up 28 reps on the bench press and moved well during drills. He told reporters after the workout he will be visiting Buffalo this week and will soon make a stop in Carolina as well.

N.C. State: Late-round prospects shine

Big draw:OL Rob Crisp
Don't forget:LB D.J. Green
Notable attendees:Giants DB coach David Merritt was among the nearly two dozen scouts and coaches in Raleigh.
The skinny:There weren't a ton of potential draftees in action at the Wolfpack's facility on Monday, but several could be late-round picks or undrafted free agents. Crisp displayed a good blend of power and athleticism during drills and most notably pancaked a poor student manager who was helping hold a bag. NFL Media senior analyst Gil Brandt noted that Tyson Chandler, an offensive lineman with 36 5/8-inch arms, has several teams intrigued. Brandt also reports that three special teams coaches were on hand to work out punter Wil Baumann.

Grayson states case as No. 3 QB

Also in action on Monday:Georgia Southern, Texas State, UTSA.

On deck for Tuesday:East Carolina, Iowa State, North Carolina, Northern Iowa, Northwestern State, Ohio, Texas.
