NFL teams cannot put players through workouts that they invite to their facility for official pre-draft visits. Instead, they may interview a prospect or put them through a physical examination.
That's why even though the Green Bay Packers had North Dakota State quarterback Brock Jensen in for a visit to team headquarters on Tuesday, they'll be putting the Wisconsin native through a private on-campus workout in Fargo on Thursday.
The Packers appear to be taking their late-round quarterback options very seriously, also bringing in players like David Fales of San Jose State and Keith Wenning of Ball State for visits as well.
Also on Thursday, after two days spent in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, the Packers return to Wisconsin for the third stop on their 2014 Tailgate Tour in Superior.
In the evening, the tour bus will roll into Superior High School with team president Mark Murphy along with current players Mason Crosby, Brad Jones and Jarrett Bush and former players James Lofton, Lynn Dickey and Paul Coffman.
Tickets are on sale at Screen Graphics in Superior for $30 for the tailgate party that takes place from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. CT and includes food, an autograph signing and a Q&A session. General admission tickets are also available for $5 minus the food and autographs. Money raised will benefit the local National Bank Commerce Spartan Sports Complex.
Prior to the day's final destination, the Packers typically make unnanounced stops at local schools, businesses and community centers along the route.
