Auburn, Tulsa and Northern Illinois are among the several schools hosting their Pro Days on Friday, March 10.

Several colleges are holding their Pro Days on Friday, which means we’ll get to likely hear about how NFL Draft hopefuls fare from Auburn, Tulsa, Northern Illinois, Southeastern Oklahoma State, New Mexico State, Army, Tuskegee and Alabama State. We’ll also get an idea of where the Kansas City Chiefs might be interested in someone as college coaches, insightful fans or local reporters get a beat on what NFL teams are represented at each specific place.

Defensive linemen Carl Lawson and Montravius Adams will join safety Rudy Ford and other prospects at Auburn’s Pro Day. Lawson already made waves as a strong pass rusher in the SEC and his NFL Combine numbers were impressive, especially with 35 bench press reps. He’ll look to improve on his 4.67 second 40-yard dash time, but Lawson’s stock is already solid.

Kenny Golladay will be the prospect turning heads at Northern Illinois, a transfer back home to the Chicago area after starting his career at North Dakota. He’s got tremendous size at 6’4″, 218 lbs. and he ran a 4.5 second 40-yard dash at the recent NFL Combine. If he can improve upon some of those numbers at his Pro Day, he will likely move up draft boards. Could he potentially go late on Day 2? Unlikely but if a team falls in love with his physical package and can project a bit, they might bite.

Raheem Wilson might be interesting to some NFL teams as a small school defensive back prospect. The 5’11”, 185 lb. senior has started since his freshman season for Southwestern Oklahoma State University and has flashed playmaking ability in the secondary from the start. This last season, Wilson defended a Division II leading 24 passes and had 5 interceptions, for which he was awarded All-American status. He has a total of 18 career interceptions.
