I’m going to be heading out to the University of South Florida’s pro day workouts in Tampa on Tuesday.
Obviously, the big name there will be defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. He’s projected as a first-round pick and some say he could go in the top 10. I’ll be doing an extensive column on Pierre-Paul as we get closer to the draft.
But I’m also going to be keeping a close eye on Nate Allen, because one NFC South personnel executive told me to keep an eye on Allen. The executive, who didn’t want to be named, said his team really likes Allen. Most projections out there have Allen as a second-round pick, but a strong workout could put him even closer to the first round.
Also this week, we’ll have our regularly scheduled programming with The Big Question on Tuesday, Draft Watch on Wednesday and Stock Watch on Thursday. The NFC South chat also is scheduled for Friday at 1 p.m. ET.
