TOWSON, Md. - Scouts from 22 National Football League teams came to campus on Monday to attend the Tigers’ annual Pro Day.
On Monday afternoon, the scouts tested, timed and measured a talented group of Tiger seniors with aspirations to play pro football.
While Terrance West was the main focus of attention, offensive linemen Eric Pike, Doug Shaw and Randall Harris had a chance to impress the scouts. In addition, linebackers Telvion Clark and Monte Gaddis were targets of attention by the NFL scouts. Quarterback Peter Athens, defensive back Ryan Mays, cornerback Jordan Love and running back Sterlin Phifer also participated.
The afternoon began with all the Tigers being measured. From there, it was on to the weight room for further tests. After that, everyone tolerated a rain storm to watch the Tigers on the field at Unitas Stadium.
A large contingent of media members was also present.
“To get this many NFL scouts to come to campus is such a positive thing,” said Coach Rob Ambrose. ”We are excited that they came to campus to get to know our young men.”
Monday’s gathering was clearly the highest number of scouts to attend the Tigers’ Pro Day.
