Today is the first of two "Pro Days" at the University of Missouri. NFL scouts are invited to watch any and all Missouri Tiger seniors work out in front of them in hopes of improving their draft status or for those who didn’t attend the NFL combines, a chance to get themselves noticed.
In the case of wide receiver Will Franklin, it’s an opportunity to reinforce his strong showing at the NFL combines which are by invitation only. Martin Rucker should be at this pro day as well because he had tweaked a hamstring and did not participate in any of the physical drills at the combine.
The next pro day will be March 20th at Missouri.
I had the opportunity to visit with Franklin and ask him about this upcoming event and what it was like working out in front of NFL GM’s and coaches in Indianapolis.
