Washington tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins won’t participate in Washington’s April 2 pro day workout due to pending surgery to repair a stress fracture in his foot, according to FOX Sports’ Joel Klatt. Doctors at the NFL Scouting Combine discovered Seferian-Jenkins’ injury in Indianapolis last week, causing the former Huskies star to join a number of top tight ends who were unable to perform at their best at the event.

Teddy Bridgewater might have breezed through the NFL Scouting Combine doing little more than interviewing with clubs and skipping more drills than he participated in, but that has only set up a more demanding pro day workout for him. Bridgewater is vying to be the No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans, and former Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage told College Football 24/7 that NFL clubs will be expecting him to make up for all his missed action when Louisville holds its pro day March 17.

Between the NFL Scouting Combine and the 2014 NFL Draft, NFL coaches and scouts — not to mention the prospects themselves — turn their attention to the various college pro day workouts. These are not as all-encompassing as the combine, but they are important enough for the key decision-makers in the league to travel around the country for more than a month to watch the talent up close and in person.
Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will throw at the pro day held at Northwestern on March 4, Gil Brandt said. Garoppolo emerged some FCS-level competition to become one of the top quarterback prospects in the 2014 NFL Draft and a possible mid-round pick. Follow College Football 24/7 on Twitter @NFL_CFB.

Quarterback uncertainty can be tough for a team this time of year. Just ask Michael Vick, who plead, very publicly, with coach Chip Kelly to cut the Eagles’ quarterback contest short for the good of the team. Does Vick have a point? No team entering camp with a quarterback controversy in 2013 was particularly great on offense in 2013. With a prolonged battle at the most important position on the field, the other ten offensive starters only stand to lose valuable practice time. That problem only worsens if there’s a clear-cut favorite at quarterback on the roster right now. The Eagles have a serious quarterback competition, but the same can’t be said for other squads around the NFL. With that in […]

Ask a representative sampling of NFL players who’s going to win Super Bowl XLVII, and you’ll get some interesting insight into these guys.
One had to feel for Ray Lewis on Tuesday. This is supposed to be the big guy’s Final Ride, and yet the Super Bowl’s biggest non-game day event turned into a double whammy for him.

Barack Obama isn’t the only U.S. president to demonstrate an avid interest in football. Richard Nixon was probably the biggest football fan to serve as chief executive.
With all the money, fame and attention bestowed upon NFL players it is easy to forget that even at the Pro Bowl — where all-stars are recognized for extraordinary performance on the field — off of the field they are still a group of ordinary young men. They are sons, brothers, husbands and fathers, who laugh at and worry about the same things as the rest of us. In the short period of time since the players arrived in Hawaii on Tuesday afternoon there have been constant reminders of that for those of us working closely with them. In my last NFL.com blog, I mentioned that Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who has been selected to his 12th Pro Bowl […]
