NFL Draft Pro Day Update: Baylor Stars Shine Thursday

Yesterday, we briefly touched on the Buffalo Bills' presence at the Florida Atlantic pro day. The bigger pro day on Thursday was at Baylor, where two top 2011 NFL Draft prospects continued to impress after strong Combine showings. Phil Taylor, a 337-pound nose tackle, and Danny Watkins, a 26-year-old offensive guard, both stood on their Combine workout numbers and impressed in positional drills.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt was on the scene, and he believes that Taylor has solidified himself as a first-round pick. That news will hurt a few Bills fans I've talked to that have opined that the team should consider Taylor at the top of the second round. Brandt also states his belief that Watkins is a strong option in the second round despite his age and his limited exposure to football.

On Friday, the biggest school holding its pro day is Troy, where possible day two selection Jerrel Jernigan - a wide receiver - will be working out. Jernigan, a star and former teammate of Bills backup quarterback Levi Brown, finished his outstanding collegiate career with 262 receptions, 3,128 yards and 18 touchdowns. He's got a shot to be a third-round pick, and may even sneak into round two.
