2014 NFL Draft: Highlighting Biggest Pro Day Performances so Far
Which NFL prospects had the best showings at their pro day? Pro day performances, while not as hyped up as the NFL Combine, can have lasting effects on a player's draft stock. Players have fell out of the first round and vice versa due to pro day play.
Who has impressed at their pro days so far? These three prospects will likely see a boost in draft stock after their performances.
1. Kelvin Benjamin
By all accounts, Kelvin Benjamin had an impressive workout. He had a 33 inch vertical and an impressive shuttle.
Benjamin likely put himself into first round consideration after his strong performance. At 6'5" he could develop into a dominant NFL receiver.
2. Derek Carr
Derek Carr impressed scouts with his accuracy and ball placement. He completed 56 of 63 passes, with a few being dropped.
One scout stated that Carr didn't have a single bad throw, according to CBS Sports. Carr has now pretty much solidified his status as a first-round pick. The only question is whether or not he will go in the top 15.
3. Blake Bortles
Blake Bortles seems to be cementing himself as the all but certain first overall pick. That is, unless the Texans trade back.
He impressed scouts, showing he could make every throw necessary in the NFL. He also showed good accuracy and footwork. Bortles' stock is soaring now and it's hard to see him falling farther than third overall.
