Monday, the NFL announced the official schedule of pro days, during which college campuses host departing players and local invitees for workouts observed by scouts. Other than the NFL Combine, it's the key period for team scouts to work out and interview players. Expect Alabama's to outdraw Colgate's, I'm saying.
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will give junior Stephen Hill, along with seniors presumably including Roddy Jones, Steven Sylvester and Jason Peters, a chance to work out on March 6. Last year, Tech players had to work out indoors due to weather. No date has yet been announced for the Georgia Bulldogs.
Dates to watch for the Atlanta Falcons include ... all of them? They've been most frequently attached to tight ends for some reason, so keep an eye on those Stanford and Louisiana-Lafayette workouts, among others.
