The college pro day schedule has a full crop of NFL hopefuls, including some Northern Colorado, Air Force and Colorado players.
The NFL has published the complete schedule for each college and university's 2012 pro day. The pro days stretch from March 1 to April 6, spanning a full month of work outs for NFL hopefuls. Pro days are much like the NFL Combine, where players are measured and tested physically and mentally, but pro days typically encompass a wider array of players, including players who were either not invited or declined their invite to the combine.
The Northern Colorado Bears start the Colorado pro days with their March 7 workouts, hoping to push one of their athletes to become the team's first draft pick since DB Reed Doughty in 2006. The following day, March 8, the Colorado Buffaloes will hold a pro day for G Ryan Miller, an interior lineman prospect projected to go in the late rounds of the draft.
The Air Force Falcons will hold their pro day on March 12, hoping to land an NFL player since LB Anthony Schlegel went to the New York Jets in 2006. Falcons players that get drafted into the NFL and stick on a roster typically get service deferments for their military service.
