Pro Days Added for QBs, Justin Fields & Trey Lance
QB Justin Fields will throw today again for NFL teams at Ohio State’s second pro day. It gets another chance to showcase his talent in front of scouts with a number of teams in the top half of the first round present. Fields will perform in front of the San Francisco 49ers who have the 3rd pick overall at this month’s draft, in addition to the Falcons, Panthers and Broncos, all holding top ten selections. The Patriots will be in attendance and may inquire about moving into the top ten selections for a young passer.

49ers’ G.M. John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan will be there after they missed Fields’ first pro day on March 30th to attend Mac Jones’ pro day performance at Alabama’s pro day. The Patriots’ HC Bill Belichick also missed Field’s first workout at the Bama Pro Day and could be present today.
All the interested teams will probably commit to attending Trey Lance’s workout at North Dakota State’s second pro day on Monday, April 19th. He performed well on his first pro day on March 12th. Both Fields and Lance are marginal top five selections according to the team’s system and coaching staffs. Each QB hopes to leave a last late impression after other prospects Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson and Mac Jones all performed very well in their scripted drills that improved their stock.
LSU linebacker Jabril Cox will also have a late pro day on Monday April 26th. He missed the Tigers’ pro day on March 31th due to hamstring tightness which kept him sidelined. Cox started his college career at North Dakota State before transferring to Baton Rouge for the 2020 season. He played well and handled the SEC competition weekly. He is a rangy defender who has agility, speed and range to be a coverage backer in the NFL. At 6’3” and 232 pounds, he has the frame to put on weight and has shown he can take on tight ends at the line and in space.
