The NFL Draft is a month away and many athletes are working out everyday.

Former Cincinnati quarterback Brendon Kay took a day off to attend Saturday's spring game and talked with BearcatInsider.com about the work he's doing prior to the draft.

Kay, who played a huge part in UC's success last year when he stepped in for injured Munchie Legaux finish the season with 3,302 yards passing, completing 66-percent of his passes while throwing 22 touchdowns.

Kay has been putting in a lot of time in workouts and told Insider all about it.

"Had two months in Miami (FL), a week out in Long Beach (CA) for the all-star game, then a week in Louisville (KY) working with Brian Bohm, then in Cincy working with Coach Walker, Anthony McClung and then Murphysboro (IL) with Kelly Holcomb," Kay explained. "I've been here in Cincinnati and had a workout this past Wednesday with seven (NFL) teams that went really well and I'm happy about that."

Kay says he's worked out for a few teams like the Cincinnati Bengals, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders while talking with many others.

"I have met with about 20 teams between the all-star game and now," he continued. "Just trying to stay in shape. I'm going to start working out with Chad Pennington twice a week down in Lexington (KY) on Tuesday's and Thursday's up until the draft."

Kay is not projected to be on Mel Kiper's big draft board or even the top player at his position, but Kay is confident that he'll get a chance in the NFL.

"They are saying a late round or free agent. My whole goal is getting my foot in the door somewhere, which I know I will and just take it from there."
