NEWARK, Del. -- Numerous National Football League scouts will be on hand tomorrow, Thursday, March 14, when the University of Delaware holds its annual Pro Day.
The event, which is held during this time period on many NCAA Division I campuses, gives draft eligible student-athletes the opportunity to work out and show their skills in front of professional scouts in hopes of landing a tryout later this spring.
The event will get underway with field testing at 10:45 am on the football turf practice fields located directly behind Delaware Field House and will take place for approximately 90 minutes.
As many as 10 student-athletes who closed out their eligibility with the Blue Hens during the 2012 season are expected to work out, including linebacker and co-captain Paul Worrilow.
