The NFL Combine is scheduled from February 22-28. The Pro Day schedule will start only four days later when Missouri University will hold the first on campus workout for NFL prospects.

Pro Day workouts are held on campus at school facilities. The interview and medical testing components are addressed at the NFL Combine. The athletic drills, 40-yard dash, vertical leap, broad jump, bench press, 3-cone drill, etc. can take place at either event. It has become a chance for athletes not invited to the NFL Combine to show their talent in front of NFL personnel decision-makers.

Interestingly, the Pro Day dates for Stanford and Baylor are both scheduled for March 22nd with the top passers Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III both expected to perform. They are the top two QBs with Luck most likely the top overall selection and Griffin probably going in the top four or five overall choices. National champion Alabama's Pro Day was announced yesterday, as well.
