For those of you irritated by hype and fanfare, you may want to avoid ESPN3.com today at 1:30 PM ET. That's when the worldwide leader will be broadcasting the Auburn pro day - headlined, of course, by star junior quarterback Cameron Newton. (Buddy Nix will be there.)

Auburn's pro day will feature more than just Newton, however, with defensive tackle Nick Fairley becoming the second of our Buffalo Bills Baker's Dozen to be working out at a pro day today. Several other intriguing Auburn prospects will be on the field as well, including prominent Combine snub Josh Bynes, an inside linebacker.

Much to the chagrin of GMs everywhere, today is also Arkansas' pro day, meaning that star quarterback Ryan Mallett will be making his final public pro audition by day's end, as well. Mallett, who threw the ball better than anyone at the Combine, is expected to take part in more athletic tests today - and though his stock will be volatile thanks to alleged character concerns, another strong outing could make him a lock for the first round.

Busy day ahead - and if you're into watching football players work out, be sure to hit up ESPN3.com at 1:30. (Which is approximately 15 minutes from now.)
