Thursday's Pro Day Preview

With the lack of participation at Missouri's pro day, the schools to watch today will be Syracuse, Troy and UNLV.

Syracuse fullback Tony Fiammetta is arguably the top prospect at his position and could earn a spot as high as the 4th round if he impresses today. Syracuse running back Curtis Brinkley also has a chance to improve draft stock this afternoon. Scouts will be hoping to see Brinkley run in the low 4.4 range.

UNLV running back Frank Summers has a lot riding on his workout. A 4.5 forty or better means he'll get a look at running back. If it falls into the 4.6 range, he'll be moved to fullback.

Troy's top prospect is once again a cornerback, Sherrod Martin. While Martin isn't the next Leodis McKelvin, he's hoping to run in the 4.3 range and potentially climb as high as the 4th round. He ran a 4.48 at the combine, but times always mysteriously drop on their home turf. He could also look to improve upon an already solid 36 inch vertical leap.

    Woah, Syracuse getting some love! I don't think we got to see brinkley's speed all season behind that O-Line, so he just MAY be hiding 4.4 speed ... who knows?!
