TWENTYMAN: 5 pro days to watch this week

5. California, Friday, March 18

Who to watch: Two names jump out here with quarterback Jared Goff and running back Daniel Lasco. Goff will try to make himself the top quarterback available in the draft.

Lasco tore up the Combine with a 4.46-second 40-yard dash, 41.5-inch vertical, 11'3" broad jump and 11.31-second 60-yard shuttle. He opened some eyes with those numbers. A good Pro Day on top could help his draft status significantly.

Also keep an eye on: TE Stephen Anderson, WR Trevor Davis, WR Kenny Lawler

4. Penn State, Thursday, March 17

Who to watch: Defensive end Carl Nassib has great size (6-7, 277) and led the nation with a school record 15.5 sacks last season. He also forced six fumbles. The former walk-on is a bit raw and didn't finish in the top of any testing category among pass rushers at the Combine. Showing a bit more explosiveness at his pro day could go a long way to improving his draft stock.

Also keep an eye on: QB Christian Hackenberg, DT Austin Johnson, SS Jordan Lucas, DT Anthony Zettel

**3. UCLA, Tuesday, March 15


Who to watch: Outside linebacker Myles Jack said at the Combine he expected his injured knee to be 100 percent by his pro day. Jack, a likely first-round pick, suffered a season-ending torn meniscus in practice in September. Considered one of the most athletic players in the draft, scouts will be looking forward to his testing and drill work at his pro day.

Also keep an eye on: T Caleb Benenoch, C Jake Brendel, DT Kenny Clark, TE Thomas Duarte, K Ka'imi Fairbairn, WR Jordan Payton, RB Paul Perkins, G Alex Redmond

2. Michigan State, Wednesday, March 16

Who to watch: Quarterback Conner Cook hasn't done himself any favors leading up to the draft. He skipped the Senior Bowl and then didn't blow anyone away throwing the football at the Combine. He needs a good pro day.

Also keep an eye on: C Jack Allen, WR Aaron Burbridge, DE Shilique Calhoun, T Jack Conklin, DT Joel Heath, DT Lawrence Thomas

1. Baylor, Wednesday, March 16

Who to watch: Defensive tackle Andrew Billings was one of the big winners at the Combine, showing terrific size, strength and quickness in drills and fieldwork. Another good showing at his pro day will solidify him as a Top 20 pick.

Also keep an eye on: WR Corey Coleman, OL Spencer Drango, CB Xavien Howard, LS Jimmy Landes, DE Shawn Oakman
