Falcons Pro Day Round-Up 4/5
Tuesday featured no collegiate pro days, but the two personal pro days of two prominent prospects at Alabama and Kansas State.
NFL.com’s Jason LaCanfora reports that all 32 teams were expected to be in Tuscaloosa today to see Alabama quarterback Greg McElroy hold his personal pro day. McElroy has yet been able to throw for scouts this off-season after injuring his hand. Receiving passes from him were teammates in tight end Preston Dial (who was unable to run routes due a sports hernia) and wide receiver Earl Alexander. Alexander pulled his hamstring at the end of the workout. South Alabama wideout Courtney Smith was also on hand to catch passes from McElroy.
Twenty teams showed up at Kansas State to see RB Daniel Thomas work out, although no confirmation if the Falcons were among them. A dozen of those teams sent their running backs coaches. Early reports clocked Thomas with a 40 time in the 4.5-4.6 range. He had been limited by a hamstring injury throughout the off-season, but a strained quadriceps muscle prevented him from running a second 40 during his workout.
