Florida State was the big stop during the Tuesday edition of the NFL pro day tour, although they were one of just 13 schools scheduled to hold a workout for NFL scouts. While the Seminoles don't have the star power of a top draft prospect at quarterback like Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel -- at least not in this draft class -- prospects like Timmy Jernigan and Kelvin Benjamin drew scouts to Tallahassee on Tuesday.
The 12 other schools holding workouts are California, Montana, Pittsburg State, Delaware, Sam Houston State, Murray State, North Carolina-Charlotte, Old Dominion, Southern Illinois, Tartleton State, UC Davis and William & Mary.
Here are the latest updates on the major schools and players in action:
More than 70 NFL scouts were in Tallahassee to watch the national champions. Chip Kelly, and Rex and Rob Ryan were among the coaches in attendance, and Kelly seemed to have his eye on the defensive players participating in the Seminoles' pro day:
Chip Kelly watching these linebackers very closely. Peeks his head up every time Christian Jones is running drills.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
Jernigan weighed in at 6'5, 242 pounds with a 33-inch vertical leap.
Benjamin sat on his Combine 40 time and benched 17 reps. During the position drills, he showed off the circus catch ability that Seminoles fans (and opposing players) have become so used to seeing:
Pass route: high ball thrown to sidelines, scouts duck. Benjamin snags it no problem. Yeah ok then. #fsu— Powell Latimer (@Powell_Warchant) March 18, 2014
Both Steelers and Broncos seem really interested in Kelvin Benjamin. Lots of representatives talking to him from those two.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
Florida State did not release 40 times to the media, but James Wilder ran an unofficial time in the 4.4-5 range:
James Wilder just ran a much better 40 than at the Combine. I clocked him at an unofficial 4.41.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
Probably closer to a 4.5.— Dustin Tackett (@dtackett_) March 18, 2014
Bryan Stork ran an unofficial 5.25 time and had 21 reps on the bench press.
Linebacker Jordan Tripp is the most notable player in this FCS school, and plenty of NFL teams had scouts on hand to watch him in person:
A handful of teams were in attendance for Tuesday's action at Pittsburg State:
Those teams were likely on hand to watch senior wide receiver John Brown, who is ranked as a Day 3 selection by several analysts.
