Football's Pro Timing Day Set For Wednesday
BATON ROUGE – LSU will welcome representatives from every NFL franchise, including eight general managers and five head coaches, as the Tigers host their annual Pro Timing Day at the Charles McClendon Practice Facility on Wednesday morning.
LSU’s Pro Day, which annually draws over 100 NFL Personnel and another 100 media to cover the event, starts at 8:30 a.m. CT with player measurements. At 9:30, the participants will take part in the vertical jump, broad jump and bench press in the newly remodeled LSU weight room.
Players will then be timed in various running drills, including the 40-yard dash, the 3-cone drill and the 60-yard shuttle. The day wraps up with each positon group going through a series of on-field drills directed by the NFL scouts.
The SEC Network will televise the event live beginning at 10 a.m. CT. The NFL Network and ESPN’s SportsCenter will also be on hand for reports throughout the day.
Among those former LSU players expected to take part in Pro Day on Wednesday include projected first round picks in safety Jamal Adams, running back Leonard Fournette and cornerback Tre’Davious White and All-America center Ethan Pocic along with second team All-America linebacker Kendell Beckwith.
