As much attention as the combine receives, it is merely the highest-profile stage of the evaluation process. Just as often, a player's pro day can make the biggest difference in his draft stock.
On March 26, the remaining Longhorn hopefuls will take to their home field and attempt to make a lasting impression on an NFL scout. After his impressive performance at the combine, defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat will let his former teammates step into the spotlight. His draft stock is safe, as is kicker Anthony Fera's.
But not every Longhorn attempting to get drafted got a chance to show off at the combine. For Carrington Byndom, Trey Hopkins, Donald Hawkins and Mason Walters, this pro day is their last chance to realize their dream of playing in the NFL.
And for Mike Davis, it is an opportunity to put an untimely injury in the rear-view mirror.
