NFL Pro-Day at Kennesaw State University

KENNESAW, Ga. — The Kennesaw State football team is set to host its third Pro Day event on Friday, March 16. The invitation-only event is for former Owls, and other former college athletes, to be evaluated by scouts from National Football League teams in advance of the NFL Draft.

Those attending have been recommended by their college head coach and competed at the NCAA Division I FCS, Division II, Division III and NAIA levels. Kennesaw State players who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility are able to participate. The Owls participating are linebacker Izzy Sam and defensive end Justin Marcus.

The tryout and measuring is scheduled to begin around 1 p.m. at The Perch at the KSU Sports and Entertainment Park. The event is closed to the general public.

The participants in KSU’s Pro Day will be timed in the 40-yard dash, 20 and 60-yard shuttles, and three-cone drill before going through position work. Other measurable drills held during the day will include the bench press, broad jump and vertical jump. The prospects will also go through a flexibility test and have their height, weight, hand width, arm length and wing span measured by personnel from NFL teams.
