pinnacle of high profile events, the NFL Combine. According to his Draft Journal, the Rams, Chiefs, and Eagles all sent their offensive line coaches to Hillsdale last week for individual workouts.
Today, a couple of other NFL hopefuls get a chance to show their skills. WR AJ Kegg and DE Drew Berube will be on display at Grand Valley’s pro day in Allendale, MI. The two will join other GLIAC hopefuls today and then again on Thursday when the attention turns back to Hillsdale where the Chargers will hold their first ever pro day. Both will work out again and Veldheer will do position drills for the league personnel assembled.
Next Monday, more scouting attention comes to Hillsdale for March 22nd’s junior day. Reports out of The Dale have surfaced that WR Andre Holmes ran sub 4.4 in winter testing. A 40 like that in front of scouts could really crank his stock. QB Troy Weatherhead is another Charger listed by at least one draft news website as an NFL prospect.
