TWENTYMAN: 6 pro days to watch this week

6. Tennessee, Saturday, March 31

Who to watch: Mock drafts have Tennessee sack specialist Derek Barnett coming off the board anywhere from inside the top 10 to somewhere in the 20's. Barnett is one of the most productive defensive linemen to come out of the SEC in quite some time (32 sacks the last three seasons). He will be out to prove at Tennessee's pro day he's one of the best edge players in this draft, and deserves to be a top 10 pick.

Also keep an eye on: QB Joshua Dobbs, RB Alvin Kamara, WR Josh Malone, LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin, CB Cameron Sutton

**5. Texas A&M, Friday, March 30


Who to watch: After tearing up the Combine with his freakish athleticism, it's probably a safe bet that Myles Garrett stands on those numbers at his pro day. However, he'll draw a crowd for his on-field workouts, and that's likely to include a strong contingent from the Browns, who own the No. 1 pick in next month's NFL Draft.

Also keep an eye on: OL Jermaine Eluemunor, S Justin Evans, OT Avery Gennesy, DE Daeshon Hall, QB Trevor Knight, WR Speedy Noil, WR Josh Reynolds, Ricky Seals-Jones

4. Miami, Thursday, March 29

Who to watch: David Njoku is widely considered the second-best tight end available in this draft behind Alabama's O.J. Howard. He was one of the top performers at the Combine in the vertical (37.5), broad jump (11-1) and three-cone (6.97), but his 40 time of 4.64 ranked eighth among the tight ends. Can he get into the 4.5's at his pro day and then turn around and impress coaches and scouts with his on-field work? If he does, he probably solidifies his standing as a first-round pick.

Also keep an eye on: S Jamal Carter, WR Stacy Coley, CB Corn Elder, G Danny Isidora, S Rayshawn Jenkins, QB Brad Kaaya, DE Al-Quadin Muhammad, P Justin Vogel

**3. Florida State, Wednesday, March 28


Who to watch: Running back Dalvin Cook ran well in the 40-yard dash at the Combine, posting a 4.49-second time, and he also reassured anyone who might of had concerns about his surgically repaired shoulders when he put up 22 reps on the bench press. However, Cook's times in the 20-yard shuttle (4.53 seconds) and three-cone drill (7.27 seconds), and his broad jump of 116.0 inches, weren't among the top 12 for running backs. He'll have a chance to improve upon those numbers at his pro day, and back up his claim that he's the best back in this draft at Wednesday's pro day.

Also keep an eye on: OT Roderick Johnson, WR Travis Rudolph, FB Freddie Stevenson, DE Demarcus Walker, CB Marquez White, WR Kermit Whitfield, WR Bobo Wilson

2. Texas, Wednesday, March 28

Who to watch: Running back D'Onta Foreman is considered by most analysts to be one of the top five running backs available in a very deep class of runners, after rushing for more than 2,000 yards last season. Foreman weighed in at 6-foot, 233 pounds at the combine, but wasn't permitted to work out because doctors found a small stress fracture in his foot during the medical testing. Foreman is expected to run and work out at Texas' pro day. If he runs well at his size, he'll help his stock immensely.

Also keep an eye on: N/A

1. Florida, Wednesday, March 28

Who to watch: Jarrad Davis is considered one of the top linebackers in the country, but like Foreman, he was unable to do the testing at the Combine because he was still recovering from an ankle injury that kept him out of Florida's last three games this past year. Davis said at the Combine he'd "most definitely" be ready to run through the testing and the drills at Florida's pro day.

Also keep an eye on: LB Alex Anzalone, DT Caleb Brantley, DE Bryan Cox Jr., S Marcus Maye, OT David Sharpe, CB Teez Tabor, CB Quincy Wilson
