Fordham has a pro day for some of its players and other local players as well.

It's not a big deal and nothing to puff one's chest about.

Dartmouth had a pro day last year or year before.

While some guys were indeed legit pro prospects, other guys who "participated" were second stringers who wanted an excuse to run around on the field one last time.

Pro days are an opportunity showcase your talent for players who weren't invited to the combine. The players who participate have already been scouted and have shown enough to draw the scouts back to campus.

Yes Dartmouth had a pro day last year and Vernon Harris and Jacob Flores caught on as undrafted free agents.

My understanding is that Harris was injured and then waived in early August by the Chiefs. Flores was injured at Green Bay and then signed to the practice squad last October.

Does anyone have any further info beyond that?

actually I still think he has a legit shot at making roster this year, why else would they have brought him back. The kid is a stud. I hope we get one of his two brothers still in HS

Vernon Harris is back in Hanover this off season attending classes and training. Was on IR following shoulder injury.

Jacob Flores had a knee injury in camp and was resigned to practice squad when healthy. Packers have three FA lineman, which is good...

Thanks for the info. Cornell's Tretter was the Packers' starting center last year until he was injured mid-season. Hopefully, Flores will be given his shot as well.

My recollection (perhaps wrong) is that Harris was an engineering major who graduated with his class. Is he taking graduate courses? In any event, good luck to him--he started 40 games in 4 years at Dartmouth while majoring in engineering. If he can do that, he's going to have great success in life.
