Rutgers Pro Day Central

PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Rutgers hosted its pro day Wednesday afternoon from its indoor practice facility with multiple NFL hopefuls and every pro team in attendance. Scout covered pro day on the front lines, and has you covered with interviews and analysis.

Multiple Rutgers players helped their draft stock in pro day workouts, highlighted by quarterback Gary Nova's impressive throwing periods at a 4.44 40-yard dash from wide receiver Andrew Turzili.

Both NFL Combine participates -- tight end Tyler Kroft and fullback Michael Burton -- worked out again for scouts Wednesday, and arguable combine snub Kaleb Johnson did the same on the offensive line.

Fourth-year head coach Kyle Flood broke down pro day with reporters, including his take on the participants and the significance of NFL visitors like Devin McCourty, Tim Wright and Jeremy Zuttah.


Kroft ran a 4.72 on scouts' hand timers after he did not participate in the combine with an ankle injury. Now healthy, Kroft's 40-yard dash time would have been third at his position compared to times in Indianapolis. The early NFL departure discussed his workout with Scout.


Burton did not run after a strong combine performance, but went through other drills with scouts during the three-hour session at the Rutgers indoor facilities. The walk-on turned team captain turned NFL Combine participate spoke with Scout about his journey and lessons learned at Rutgers.


Nova threw well and shocked many with a 4.62 40-yard dash.


Scout national recruiting analyst Brian Dohn joined Scarlet Report at pro day with analysis on the workout session.
