LOGAN, Utah – Utah State’s former senior football players will work out for National Football League (NFL) scouts on Thursday, March 3, in USU’s annual “Pro Day,” as they evaluate the former Aggies’ draft eligible seniors for the upcoming NFL Draft. The players will have their height and weight measured, then go through performance tests including vertical jump, broad jump, bench press, shuttle run, L-drill run and the 40-yard dash. Teams’ pro days are one of the many tools used by NFL teams in preparation for the NFL Draft, which will take place Thursday-Saturday, Apr. 28-30 from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. Round one is Thursday, April 28. Rounds two and three will be Friday, April 29, with rounds four through seven on Saturday, April 30. USU’s coaching staff is expecting roughly 10 NFL scouts to be on hand, evaluating USU’s talent. One of the Aggies’ top prospects is cornerback Curtis Marsh. Other prospects include cornerback Chris Randle, quarterback Diondre Borel, safety Rajric Coleman and long snapper Pat Scales. If drafted, Marsh would become the first Aggie player selected in the NFL Draft since 2007, when offensive guard Shawn Murphy and wide receiver/kick returner Kevin Robinson were chosen in the fourth and sixth rounds, respectively. In only his second season as a cornerback after playing running back for the first two years of his USU career, Marsh earned second-team all-WAC honors. Marsh was also selected to the 2011 Under Armour Senior Bowl. -USU-
