Representatives from 28 NFL teams gathered at Kentucky’s pro day on March 21, where 15 players worked out indoors on FieldTurf.
The most notable participant was Larry Warford, who has a chance to be the highest-drafted offensive lineman from Kentucky since Dermontti Dawson — a 2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee — was selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round of the 1988 NFL Draft.

Matt Smith, C (6-3 3/8, 296) — Smith was only able to do the bench press, throwing up the bar 28 times. His workout came to a halt when he pulled a hamstring while running the 40.
