Penn State held it's annual pro day on Tuesday, welcoming scouts to Happy Valley from all over the NFL. Pro day provides a great opportunity for players who were at the combine to show off more of their skills, and those who did not get the invite to Indianapolis but are hoping to pop up on a team's radar.

The participating Nittany Lions were:

  • QB Trace McSorley
  • RB Miles Sanders
  • RB Jonathan Thomas
  • WR DeAndre Thompkins
  • OL Ryan Bates
  • OL Connor McGovern
  • OL Chasz Wright
  • DT Kevin Givens
  • DE Shareef Miller
  • DE Donnell Dix
  • LB Jake Cooper
  • LB Koa Farmer
  • CB Amani Oruwariye
  • S Nick Scott
  • LS Kyle Vasey

McSorley Dropping dimes

A day like today should at least quiet the concerns about McSorley's accuracy and arm strength a little bit.

Nick Scott saying hi to the media absolutely rules. He's one of the nicest guys to talk to and I hope he latches on somewhere in the NFL for a long time. Connor McGovern and Ryan Bates doing some snapping came as no surprise. Both have good size to play inside, and for Bates especially it's good to show the scouts that you can do a bit of everything. Shareef Miller is one of the scariest dudes on the planet, Koa Farmer is very, very agile for his size, and DeAndre Thompkins may have helped his draft chances more than anyone else on Tuesday.

My first impression of this chart is that Johnathan Thomas is as elite an athlete as they come. He may have a shot to hang around the NFL as a fullback type. Scott, Farmer, and Thompkins have to be pleased with their 40-yard dash times. The trio may not have gotten an invite to the combine but they undoubtedly made up some ground here.

What they're saying

Saquon comes home

It's great to see Saquon back in Happy Valley. Saquon if you're reading this, I am sorry the Giants are trying to waste your career.

Avert your eyes

I'm sorry if this picture sparks outrage.
