March 7th Pro Days: Arizona, Arkansas-Monticello, Clemson, Furman, Idaho, Illinois, Miami (Fla.), Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Syracuse, Washington State
Sheldon Richardon, DL Missouri: Richardson had a rock solid combine and is moving up most draft boards. Floyd possesses power, quickness, and good feet for a big man. Richardson is a lock as a top 15 first round pick, possibly top 10.
Zaviar Gooden, OLB Missouri: Gooden turned some heads in Indianapolis, running a 4.47 forty. Gooden could become a dangerous 3-4 pass rusher in the NFL. Gooden could push his stock up to the third round with a good day.
Shamarko Thomas, SS Syracuse: Thomas had a great forty time for a safety at 4.42 forty at the combine. He also had the most memorable finish to a forty, stumbling and ultimately faceplanting. Thomas is versatile, playing linebacker, corner, and safety in his college career.
Ryan Nassib, QB Syracuse: This will be an important day for Nassib to build on an above average combine. There are talks of the Bills targeting Nassib in the second round for a reunion with his college coach, Doug Marrone. Nassib ran a pro style offense at Syracuse and can run the hurry up offense.
Matt Scott, QB Arizona: Scott doesn't have as much experience as some of the other quarterbacks in the draft. He could turn out to be one of the better ones in it anyway. Scott has a strong arm and is mobile (4.69 forty). Not only does he have a strong arm, he's accurate as well. A good pro day and he will be rising up the draft board. Could he be this years Russell Wilson?
DeAndre Hopkins, WR Clemson: Hopkins is a top 5 WR in this years draft. He had a good combine and showed that he is a good route runner and has reliable hands. Hopkins will be looking to improve on his forty time, he ran a 4.57 at the combine. If he gets under 4.50, that could be huge for him.
