Previewing FSU's Pro Day
Warchant.com will have complete coverage of Thursday's Pro Day with Live Blog and constant updates on the Tribal Council Message Board.
With his 6-foot-7 and 270-pound frame, and considering how well he played before being injured, he has all the tools to be a draftable prospect. The only holdup will be his surgically-repaired knee. From all indications he is ahead of schedule with his rehabilitation but will not take part in most of Thursday's performance tests and drills. As a result, it may be stretch for him to get drafted in April. However, a free agent contract is not out of the question should he get a clean bill of health from NFL doctors.
Myron Rolle and Preston Parker are two draft eligible former 'Noles that are not expected to be in attendance. Rolle, a Rhodes Scholar, is back at Oxford continuing his studies but is expected to hold a private workout for NFL scouts before next month's draft.
Other players that could perform well in testing but will probably have to go the free agent route include Richard Goodman, Louis Givens and Rod Owens. Kendrick Stewart, Budd Thacker, Korey Mangum, Recardo Wright, Justin Mincey and Zack Aronson are also scheduled to participate.
Unlike previous Pro Days, prospects from other schools and former FSU players that are more than a year out of school will not be part of Thursday's activities.
