What to expect at Pro Day and other links
Wednesday is BC's annual Pro Day. BC's current seniors, some local prospects and some recent alums will all be trying to impress NFL scouts. Some of the guys who didn't get invited to the NFL combine who have a chance to make an impression include James McCluskey, Alex Albright, and Thomas Claiborne. Mark Herzlich will also be under the microscope again. His slow 40-yard-dash time at the Combine hurt his draft stock. The Pro Day is a chance to undue some of the damage. Given all the conflicting Pro Days you probably won't see the who's who of the NFL. But Castonzo's status should be enough to entice representatives from all of the NFL teams. I will try to post updates as I get them on the blog and on twitter.
BC's baseball series with Virginia Tech will be played in Rhode Island. The baseball only field can't get here fast enough.
Interesting article from Heisman Pundit. He lists Kuechly as one of the best players who will not be a Heisman candidate. While unfair, the logic is sound. A junior defensive player from a middle of the pack ACC team is not winning college football's beauty pageant.
After all the speculation, Providence hired Ed Cooley. It is a good fit all around.
