The NFL Owners Meeting in Orlando is over, and the Green Bay Packers are returning back to 1265 Lombardi Ave. to conduct business.
With little else to focus on, attention turns back to the pro day circuit, and there's a big one on tap for Thursday.
Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will be having his own personal pro day workout, throwing passes to wide receiver Mike Evans, another top-rated prospect for May's NFL Draft.
The NFL Network will provide live coverage of Manziel's pro day from 10:30 a.m. until noon CT.
Manziel took part in the measured drills at February's NFL Combine but chose not to throw, instead waiting for today's opportunity to throw in front of NFL scouts and coaches.
There's been no word if the Green Bay Packers will be represented in College Station, Tex. on Thursday, but they'll at least have the opportunity to watch on television.
It's doubtful the Packers have much interest in Manziel seeing as they're pretty much set at the quarterback position for years to come, but the division rival Minnesota Vikings might be one team that seriously considers Manziel in the first round.
On the other hand, the Packers might be very interested in Evans, however unlikely it may be that he drops to the 21st overall selection.
With James Jones departing Green Bay for Oakland in free agency and Jermichael Finley still testing the open market, it makes sense that the Packers are looking to add new weapons for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
Evans is 6' 5" and 231 lbs. and fast for his size. As a tall target, he'd provide an element to the Packers' passing attack that's been missing ever since Finley got injured.
During the offseason, Evans has been working out with former Green Bay Packers and Hall of Fame wide receiver James Lofton on his craft.
No other Texas A&M players will work out after having their pro day on March 5.
Additional pro day workouts take place at Ball State, Louisiana Tech, Georgia Southern and Coastal Carolina on Thursday.
