Team to show off for fans, scouts at Monday’s Pro Day

By Christopher Kamrani, Asst. Sports Editor

March 9 will bring the best out of those associated with Utah football, including the players, coaches and fans.

Monday’s Utah Pro Day is an annual event that features Utes eligible for the 2009 NFL Draft who will perform workouts that include weight room, shuttle runs, sprints, agility tests and individual workouts.

More than 20 NFL scouts are expected to attend the event. Sean Smith and Paul Kruger, both of whom participated in the recent NFL combine in Indianapolis, Ind., will attend and participate in the workouts. Both will run their second officially clocked 40-yard dash as well.

While at the combine, Smith, the 6-foot-3-inch, 214-lb. cornerback from Pasadena, Calif., ran a 4.47, while Kruger ran a 4.8 that he will certainly look to improve on Pro Day.

Later Monday, the Utes will attend a meet-and-greet at the University Campus Store from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The 2009 Sugar Bowl Champion team will be in attendance for fans to come and mingle with and receive autographs from.
