Newton, Mallett headline talent list for Tuesday's Pro Day auditions
With the NFL Combine since passed, the next phase of talent evaluation -- Pro Days -- kicks into high gear on Tuesday. This week, contingents from all 32 NFL teams will visit SEC West programs Auburn, Alabama, Arkansas and Mississippi State to work out draft-eligible players.
Nebraska, Ohio State, Wisconsin and Indiana are also on this week's docket, along with two Pac-10 schools, Oregon State and Arizona.
But Oklahoma gets a jump on the process, with scouts and personnel visiting Norman Tuesday morning to evaluate at least a dozen Sooners prospects. Later in the day, Cam Newton will try to improve upon his disappointing throwing workout from the combine at Auburn's Pro Day.
At Arkansas, QB Ryan Mallett will again throw for scouts (while likely running a 40 too), with hopes of wowing NFL personnel with his arm strength and accuracy -- just like he did at the Indy combine.
