AUBURN, Ala. – For offensive tackle Greg Robinson, defensive end Dee Ford, running back Tre Mason and cornerback Chris Davis, the only NFL draft question is where they will be chosen. Robinson and Ford are projected first-rounders. Mason is rated by some analysts as the top running back in the draft.

Fullback Jay Prosch and punter Steven Clark also are projected as possible draft picks, but for other former Auburn players, Auburn’s Pro Day on Tuesday will be an opportunity to show an expected large crowd of NFL scouts that they, too, deserve serious consideration. Fourteen players are expected to participate.

Robinson was one of the stars of the NFL Scouting Combine last week. Mason also drew high praise. Ford was not allowed to work out for physical reasons. Davis missed some drills because of a hamstring injury. It is uncertain whether he will be limited at Pro Day.

Others who have signed up are linebacker Jake Holland, defensive tackle Kenneth Carter, defensive end Nosa Eguae, snapper Jake Lembke, kicker Cody Parkey, defensive back Blake Poole, defensive end Craig Sanders and defensive backs Ryan White and Ryan Smith.

Workouts will start in the weight room with the bench press, flexibility tests, vertical jump and broad jump.

Players will move from there to the indoor practice facility for agility drills, L-drills, 60-yard shuttle and position workouts.

Pro Day is not open to the public.
