With the NFL Combine behind us, the Draft ahead, and the current labor dispute still ongoing, there is another set of events starting this month and continuing for the next four weeks: Pro Days. This is a time where colleges host workouts for their players, and NFL scouts come and check out guys who may not have participated in the Combine.
