University of Miami Hosts NFL Pro Day Thursday
In the midst of Coach Al Golden’s comments on WQAM about the players who left the team early for the NFL and the subsequent pot-stirring from Omar “I badmouth every UM football coach” Kelly, the University of Miami will host its annual NFL Pro Day on Thursday, March 7 beginning at 10am.
Whatever your thoughts on the matter, whether you think that Golden’s comments about these players are justified or you think that we can’t judge a young man for leaving his team to go make money for himself and his family, it is undeniable that the University of Miami’s legacy of producing NFL talent is sometimes both a blessing and a curse. Namely, while it attracts talent to Coral Gables, perhaps it is also responsible for attracting the sort of talent that is not in it for the long haul with the ‘Canes.
Nonetheless, our boys will be showcasing their talent tomorrow and we need to wish them the best in their future endeavors. NFL Pro Day gives these players an opportunity to complete drills and show off their talents to NFL and CFL scouts, similar to the NFL Combine two weeks ago.
The following players are participating from the University of Miami:
