In the past, if college football players wanted to get noticed, they hoped for an invite to the NFL Combine, or just tried to make the NFL at open tryouts of the individual teams. Then a few of the bigger schools held "Pro Days" at their school to give some of the lesser-known players a chance to show off their skills in attempts to get noticed by the NFL Scouts. Now it seems that almost every college football program in the entire country is holding their own version of a "Pro Day" as evidenced by the lenghty list on NFL.com.
Teams from Akron (March 10) through William & Mary (March 16) are among the 130 colleges that are listed. The University of Maryland Terrapins will be holding their Pro Day" on March 16th, in case you were wondering.
