2018 NFL Draft: Pro Day Week 1 Recap

NFL: Combine
Which prospects does Jon Robinson have an eye on?

The Pro Day season is in full swing with several schools starting last week on the heels of the Combine. Where did the Titans staff go and who did they see?

March 7

Newly minted HC Mike Vrabel and GM Jon Robinson were leading the Titans contingent in Tuscaloosa while other Titans reps were in Colorado. Vrabel took a, rather hands on approach at the Tide’s pro day.

Also, it was a time for a reunion to meet the Godfather, Bill Belichick and catch up with an old friend Matt Patricia.

Colorado RB Phillip Lindsay carried an impressive performance from the East-West Shrine Game to the Buffs’ Pro Day, including a 4.39 40 and 35.5 inch vertical jump. He really should have been invited to the Combine.

According to the Denver Post, the Titans sent two representatives to Colorado’s Pro Day expert Tony Pauline mentions that the Titans met with two prospects (DL Joshua Frazier and CB Tony Brown of Alabama)

March 8

Fordham held their Pro Day and standout RB Chase Edmonds delivered on the hype from the Combine according to reports.

Prospect met / interviewed

Tony Pauline writes that the Titans met with Edmonds. There’s the JROB small school special possibility. We know that RB is a glaring need, especially now that DeMarco Murray was released a few days ago. Edmonds worked out as a receiver at the Pro Day and at the Combine.

March 9

Auburn did their Pro Day a couple days after Alabama. Most of the prospects invited to the Combine stood on their numbers, considering the short time frame between the Combine and Pro Day. Seriously, NFL and NCAA, get your stuff together and stop scheduling Pro Days so close to the Combine.

RB Kerryon Johnson had a nice day by all accounts so did LB Tre Williams.

Prospects met/ interviewed

Mr. Pauline of writes that the Titans met with one safety prospect at Auburn on the heels of releasing Da’Norris Searcy. This could bear watching as neither of the Tigers safeties are worth drafting so it could be an intelligence gathering operation on CB Carlton Davis or OL Braden Smith.
