    The Badgers' pro day has ended and results are coming in. All 32 teams were on hand as Wisconsin claims as many as four top-100 prospects.

    I’m told the vast majority of the crowd today -- estimated to be 65 NFL scouts, coaches and general managers -- was primarily on hand to watch the Badgers' two star linebackers T.J. Wattand Vincent Biegel. Once the pair of linebackers finished their workouts, the crowd thinned considerably.

    Both players had dinner with Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert and head coach Mike Tomlin last night and were put through linebacker drills today by Joey Porter, the team's linebacker coach.

    New York Jets linebacker coach Kevin Greene, who ran part of the Youngstown State workout yesterday, also directed the two linebackers for a portion of the drills.

    Both Watt and Beigel looked terrific in drills. I’m told each displayed a smooth, fluid backpedal and easy hip turn and looked natural moving in reverse when simulating pass coverage. Both also caught the ball well, something that was expected from Watt, a former tight end.

    Beigel did retime the short shuttle and clocked in the 4.07s to 4.10s range, an improvement form his combine mark of 4.3s.

    Those in the know tell me the Steelers like both linebackers but probably wouldn’t part with a first-round pick for Watt and wouldn’t expect him to be available in the second frame.

    That makes Biegel in Round 3 the most likely scenario, and based on our rankings it’s a pick well-justified.

    It was a good workout for running back Corey Clement after his disappointing performance at the combine.

    Clement timed in the low to mid 4.5s (4.53s/4.56s), a significant improvement from Indianapolis. His other marks included under 4.1s in the short shuttle and 7.03s in the three-cone.

    Clement looked good in drills and looked exceptional catching the ball.

    I sort of called it.I thought he will be drafted ahead of where Shazier was drafted but Reddick has pass rush skills too which makes him so valuable.

    Same. I'm predicting he may go Top 10-12.

    Technically, per Broaddus, teams can start scheduling/having visits now. I don't know when we traditionally have had visits.

    You pretty much have to not know the draft (see immediately above) to not know when visits occur. They're occuring now. The Eagles just had Mike Williams, Fournette and Cook in yesterday. No word on anything Cowboys yet but it has to be in the next couple of weeks. Then you'll have Dallas Day after that.

    Interesting.

    Kind of a marginal athlete for the corner spot. Could be viewed a potential development player at safety.

    So was Richard Sherman. You dont need catch up speed if you arent always having to catch up.

    I'm not sure that you're claiming that is the case or if you're projecting what he could be? I brought up his athleticism (or relative lack of) because under McClay the team seems to place high value on SPARQ scores.

    Sherman was a much better athlete coming out.

    Good! I can see Adoree being the replacement for Scandrick and decoud the replacement for Carroll. Love it! Esp since I was thinking the same thing

    I don't want DeCoud playing outside, seems like his skills translate better to free safety. I know that is kind of lazy because of his timed speed, but he looks a little stiff and tight.

    Those were his Combine numbers.

    His pro day scores here:

    " DeCoud timed the forty in the mid 4.5s, with a number of teams reading 4.55s on their stop watch. His vertical jump hit 30.5 inches.

    Like his teammate DeCoud is a much better football player than pure athlete. He’s a solid cornerback but the lack of pure speed, both in the forty and on film, makes me believe he’s better off inside at safety."

    Maybe, but I doubt Dallas has plans for him as a backup free safety. Maybe I'm wrong though
