UK Football Pro Day Preview

This week Kentucky will conduct its annual NFL Pro Day at the Nutter Indoor Field House for draft eligible players beginning at 11 a.m. on Friday afternoon.


The select players will go through a number of drills to showcase their athletic ability and talents, gathering individual statistics to provide to NFL organizations in hopes of getting put in their draft decisions. They'll be participating in drills such as running and agility, bench press, position-specific drills and the vertical jump. At 10:30 a.m., their personal measurements will be recorded followed by their vertical and broad jumps, including their 225 rep test at 11:15 a.m. At close to noon, they will then begin the final drills which include the 40-yard test, Short Shuttle, 3-Cone Shuttle, 60-yard Shuttle and lastly the position drills (OL, DB, DL, WR, TE, QB).

Although the event is not open to the public, the media will be there which means Cats Coverage will have boots on the ground to bring you coverage of it. Make sure you're following our football writers Jordan and Janson to receive updates, as well as, our main page. It will also be streamed live on UKathletics.com and the SEC Network +.


There will be NFL scouts and player personnel from nearly every organization there to grade the team. Seven of the players listed above competed in the NFL Scouting Combine last month, and this will be another chance for them to continue proving why they're worth getting drafted.


The NFL Draft is set for April 28-30 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first round will be held on April 28th, followed by the second and third rounds on April 29th, and will conclude with rounds 4–7 on April 30th.
