On Thursday, Stanford will hold their NFL Pro Timing Day where Cardinal student-athletes will showcase their skill in front of NFL representatives.
Players expected at the event include: Alex Carter, Henry Anderson, Ty Montgomery, David Parry, Andrus Peat, Kyle Olugbode, Ben Rhyne, Jordan Richards, Eddie Plantaric, Ricky Seale, James Vaughters, Lee Ward, Jordan Williamson and A.J. Tarpley.
Former All-Pac-12 second team member Joe Hemschoot, who currently is rehabbing from surgery, also is a part of this year's class of NFL hopefuls out of Stanford.
Pro Timing Day operates with a very similar format to that of the NFL Combine, which is held annually each February in Indianapolis. The day features weight room evaluations, classroom testing, football-specific drills and on-field agility drills.
During the morning session, Cardinal athletes will start in the weight room and be tested with measurables including the broad jump, vertical leap, bench press and flexibility reach.
After weight room evaluations, the outdoor segment of the event will begin around 11:15 a.m. from Elliot Practice Fields. Athletes will be timed in the 20- and 60 yard shuffle, 40-yard dash, three-cone agility and position-specific drills on the field.
The outdoor portion of Pro Timing Day is accessible to the public and admission is free of cost.
For the on-field action, Tim Swartz will provide play-by-play coverage with Stanford's director of player development Ron Lynn, who will add color commentary on the ESPN3 broadcast. A number of former Cardinal alumni in attendance for the event will also join the duo over the course of the day.
Updates throughout Pro Timing Day will be posted on the team's official Twitter feed (@StanfordFBall) and our own Jack Blanchat will be tweeting from the event @RuleofTree
Eleven partakers in last season's Pro Timing Day received NFL training camp invitations, while the Cardinal notched a program-best with 6 players taken off the board during the 2014 NFL Draft. For a fifth straight year, Stanford had at least three players selected.
How many of the participating Cardinals will receive interest from NFL franchises?
