Eighteen former Florida Gators are scheduled to participate in 2016 Pro Day on Tuesday morning for the first time inside the team’s new indoor practice facility.

As it has been in recent years, Pro Day is being closed to the public. Footage from the event will be aired live nationally from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on SEC Network both on television and streaming online.

Leading the pack are potential first-round picks cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III and defensive lineman Jonathan Bullard as well as likely second-day pick safety Keanu Neal.


Five players invited to the 2016 NFL Scouting Combine will also participate: DL Alex McCalister, tight end Jake McGee, linebacker Antonio Morrison, wide receiver Demarcus Robinson and running back Kelvin Taylor. (Morrison missed the event with an undisclosed illness.)

Other potential draftees who will work out and either started or saw significant action in 2015 include: offensive lineman Mason Halter, defensive back Brian Poole and OL Trip Thurman are three other potential draftees who will participate, while WR Roger Dixon, LB Anthony Harrell, WR Latroy Pittman and WR Valdez Showers round out the 15 players from the 2015 roster.

Former Gators fullback Hunter Joyer, who suffered a torn ACL and missed his chance at the NFL one year ago, will also workout at the event, as will TE Clay Burton and DB Jabari Gorman.

    Has there been any news on Morrison? He definitely deserves a chance in the NFL after everything he’s done for our team. He could easily be considered the most improved player I can remember when it comes to maturity AND productivity. Best wishes with whatever you’re going through Morrison!!
