Seventeen players from LSU’s 2013 football team will be on display for the NFL on Wednesday at LSU’s Pro Day starting at noon at the Charles McClendon Indoor Practice Facility.
All 32 NFL teams, including seven head coaches, are expected to be on hand. The list of coaches expected to attend include Sean Payton (Saints), Marvin Lewis (Bengals), Bill O’Brien (Texans), Rex Ryan (Jets), Mike Zimmer (Vikings), Chip Kelly (Eagles) and Mike Tomlin (Steelers).
The players will go through a series of testing that includes the 40-yard dash, 225-pound bench press, vertical leap, broad jump, shuttle run and the 3-cone drill. The players will have their measurements in height, weight, hand span and wing span taken.
The NFL draft is scheduled for May 8-10 in New York and the Tigers are expected to have as many as 10 players selected.
