One question that always pops up during the offseason is some form of: "Just how important is...?" Whether it's a question of free agency versus the draft or combine numbers versus tape, everyone seems to have their own ideas about the necessity and value of different parts of the team building process.
As I tell just about anyone who asks: If the NFL finds value in part of the process, it's probably more important to some people than any of us would think. That, my dear readers, is where we land with pro days—a seeming afterthought for many, but a ridiculously important part of the overall yearly schedule for others.
One high-ranking personnel man I've spoken to has never been to a pro day save the really big football factory events that everyone attends, but that's only because he doesn't want people to see him near a prospect he might be interested in. That said, he makes sure his scouts provide detailed notes, asks the questions he wants to ask, and if there's tape of the performance, he personally scours over it himself.
On the outside, the casual observer might think this guy doesn't care about pro days. Inside, he values them as much as, if not more than, the combine.
With that in mind, which prospects are having great pro days this draft season?
