Pro Day schedule 2013: Alabama, Oklahoma headline Wednesday workouts

Kevin C. Cox

Prospects from the Crimson Tide, Sooners and Michigan State Spartans are among those participating in pro day workouts on Wednesday.

Wednesday figures to be a big one as far as pro day workouts go, as members of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Oklahoma Sooners and Michigan State Spartans, among others, participate in their school's respective drills.

In SB Nation's Dan Kadar's most recent mock draft, the Crimson Tide has four players going in the first round of the NFL Draft in April. Offensive linemen Chance Warmack (SB Nation's top-ranked guard) and D.J. Fluker, defensive tackle Jesse Williams and cornerback Dee Milliner (who won't work out on pro day) are the prospective first-rounders, but others including linebacker Nico Johnson and safety Robert Lester have another chance to leave an impression.

Running back Eddie Lacy, with a hamstring injury that won't go away, won't be working out either. Center Barrett Jones plans on bench pressing only.

In Oklahoma, offensive tackle Lane Johnson ranks third in SB Nation's position rankings and is expected to be a sure-fire first round selection. Wide receiver Kenny Stills (the 19th-ranked wideout in SB Nation's ratings) and linebacker Tom Wort -- SB Nation's 13th overall middle linebacker -- will try to boost their personal standings as well. Stills, however, may not be too active after a solid showing at the NFL Combine. Also on that chance-to-improve list is safety Tony Jefferson.

Quarterback Landry Jones gets another shot to make his mark on NFL scouts looking for a signal-caller. Sitting as the 10th-best quarterback in SB Nation's rankings, there is certainly room for possible improvement.

Michigan State will likely showcase defensive end William Gholston, one of the top prospects at the position, and tight end Dion Sims, who comes in at sixth overall in SB Nation's position rankings. Both, though, still have plenty to prove to curious NFL teams.

Two Spartans, cornerback Johnny Adams and running back Le'Veon Bell, will try to keep their positive momentum from strong combine showings at the pro day workouts.

Other schools holding pro day workouts on Wednesday include Central Oklahoma, Cincinnati, Colorado, Colorado State, Louisiana-Monroe, Marshall, Maryland, Rutgers and Washington.
