BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU will host Pro Day Wednesday at the Charles McClendon Indoor Practice Facility. A total of 28 former Tigers will participate in the event and all 32 NFL teams should be on hand to see LSU's talent. Here's a taste of "What They are Saying" about LSU Pro Day:

 

From WAFB.com:

"This is one of those days that make you proud to be a coach," LSU coach Les Miles said. "These guys have worked so hard to get to this point and to have an opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities to the NFL on our campus is exciting."

 

From NBC Sports:


The usual array of future NFL players will be on display at LSU's pro day today, including a guy who didn't even play for them last year.

 

From NBCDFW:


Dallas Cowboys head coach will head to Baton Rouge, La. on Wednesday to watch LSU's Pro Day, and according to a report in the Dallas Morning News, the team has a particular interest in safety Eric Reid.

 

From Yahoo Sports:


There are too many LSU prospects that will be working out to break them all down, but there are some key ones who need big performances. Mingo is going to be a first-round pick, but with so many elite pass rushers in this year's draft, he is not assured of being a top 15 pick.

 

From The LSU Reveille:

There are 28 former Tigers who will strut their stuff in the LSU Football Practice Facility today to try and find a landing spot on an NFL roster.

 

From NOLA.com:

Former LSU players trying to make good impression at Pro Day.

 

From Niners Nation:

Mathieu has quickly become a fan favorite on Niners Nation. Once projected as a late round flier, Mathieu has impressed scouts enough in interviews to see his stock rise to a likely second to fourth round draft selection.


From ESPN New York:

Mingo played in all 40 games over the last three seasons. He has long arms (33 3/4 inches), which many scouts believe is a must for elite pass rushers.

 

From the Bleacher Report:

This needs to be a huge day for Shepard. Route running and catching passes won't be an issue for Shepard, as the scouts already know that. This showing will be about measurables for Shepard.
