The pro day schedule is nearly complete, but the last full week of pro days was packed with major programs and star talent. The highest-profile pro day of them all, however, was USC’s pro day on Wednesday, where all eyes were on quarterback Matt Barkley, hoping to prove himself as a top-two quarterback in the 2013 draft class while also trying to prove his health following a shoulder injury that ended his senior season early.

Jarvis Jones 2013 NFL Draft

The downward perception of Jarvis Jones’ draft stock is likely to continue following a disappointing pro day performance.

Thursday was a big day on the pro day schedule leading up to the 2013 NFL Draft, highlighted by the pro days held at Georgia and Stanford, both of which were streamed via ESPN3.

I took the time to watch both pro days, focusing on some of the top prospects from each school and evaluating what the workouts showed about their athleticism.

Specifically, the day’s headliner was one of the draft class’ premier prospects, Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones. Having not worked out at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Bulldogs’ pro day was an important opportunity for him to show his athleticism to the scouts.

One of the year’s biggest pro days took place Tuesday at Florida State. The pro day was streamed on ESPN3, and there were more than 50 NFL scouts, coaches and executives in attendance representing all 32 teams, according to the broadcast.

The New England Patriots are clearly among the teams with an interest in at least one Florida State prospect, as offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels was in attendance Tuesday.

Pro Day Spotlight: Alabama, Oregon, Geno Smith

Jesse Williams Alabama

Jesse Williams proved his status as a big man who can run at Alabama’s pro day.

The Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks finished the 2012 college football season ranked as the top two teams in the nation. Both programs, which have a number of stars from their successful teams now in line to be selected in the 2013 NFL draft, held their pro days earlier this week.

Alabama’s pro day was held in Tuscaloosa, Ala. on Wednesday, while Oregon’s was in Eugene, Ore. on Thursday. Thanks to ESPN3’s coverage streamed online, I was able to watch portions of each pro day. While the coverage unfortunately did not show much of the positional drills from either workouts, there were players at both that stood out with their measurable performances.
