Wednesday features several interesting pro days, but none more so than South Carolina, which will feature Jadeveon Clowney, who may perhaps become the NFL's No. 1 overall draft choice.
There will be several other players also working out, but it will be Clowney that gets the lion's share of the attention.
NFL Network and ESPN will both provide live coverage starting at 10:00 a.m. CT and will be among 123 credentialed members of the media covering the event, according to Josh Kendall of GoGamecocks.com.
For a player measuring 6' 5" and 266 lbs., Clowney wowed onlookers at the NFL Combine by running the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds, as well as having an impressive vertical (37.5 inches) and broad jump (124 inches).
Clowney did not, however, participate in position drills, which is where most of the focus will be on Thursday. NFL scouts, coaches and personnel types may want to see him take part in linebacker drills for those than run a 3-4 scheme.
Even if Clowney drops in the NFL Draft, it's highly unlikely the Green Bay Packers will have either the ammunition or the inclination to trade up and grab him. But they may have interest in several other players from South Carolina.
Also working out on are quarterback Connor Shaw, wide receiver Bruce Ellington, defensive linemen Kelcy Quarles and Chaz Sutton and a few more. The Packers do not publish a list of pro days where they will have representatives, but it's a good bet they'll be in Columbia, S.C. on Tuesday.
Other pro days taking place on Wednesday include those at Tennessee, Washington and North Texas. With several good prospects from those respective universities, it wouldn't be a surprise if the Packers will be there too.
In the evening hours, Packers running back DuJuan Harris will co-host his weekly podcast on BWD Radio's station on the BlogTalkRadio network. The show starts at 8:00 p.m. CT.
