AUBURN, Ala. -- Cameron Artis-Payne looks to follow-up his solid showing at the NFL Combine with another good performance at Auburn's Pro Day on Tuesday.

"From the teams I've talked to, the feedback has been great. They were impressed with what I can do, and, hopefully, that helps my draft stock," said the SEC's leading rusher in 2014, who will be among 21 former Tigers from last year's team scheduled to showoff their talents for NFL types at the annual Auburn get-together.

The SEC Network will broadcast it live beginning at 10:30 a.m.

Nick Marshall, Auburn's full-time quarterback the last two years, will throw, though he is also considered a defensive back, the position he played in the Senior Bowl. He threw at the Combine, and then did defensive back drills on the side.

Others scheduled to participate from the 2014 team are Angelo Blackson, Ben Bradley, Quan Bray, Sammie Coates, Reese Dismukes, Brandon Fulse, Corey Grant, Forrest Hill, Brandon King, Patrick Miller, Jonathon Mincy, LaDarius Owens, Trovon Reed, Chad Slade, Robenson Therezie, C.J. Uzomah, Jeffrey Whitaker, Jermaine Whitehead and Gabe Wright. Steven Clark, who punted for Auburn from 2010-13, will also participate. Other former Tigers could participate as well.

Artis-Payne turned in a solid 40 time of 4.53 seconds, sixth best among running backs, in Indianapolis. He'll sit on that time at Pro Day, opting instead to participate only in position drills.

"I had a good showing with everything else," Artis-Payne said.

"A lot of people were impressed with my 40 time, as well as what I did in my position drills, and how I caught the ball."

Artis-Payne rushed for 1,608 yards last season, following another running back, Tre Mason, who led the SEC in rushing in 2013.
