The path to the NFL Draft will look a lot different this year.

Usually, after a Super Bowl champion is crowned, the league gears up for the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, a five-day spectacle in which scouts, coaches and general managers analyze measurables of prospects such as their strength, speed, agility and jumping ability.

It’s the signature event for NFL personnel to scope out prospects in person, but it’s not taking place this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With that in mind, the Pro Days at various universities will be even more vital than usual for draft preparation.

Pro Days are when college programs invite NFL scouts, coaches and general managers to their campuses, and where draft prospects on that team conduct workouts and drills to showcase their skills.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, expected by many to be the top pick in the draft, already held a personal workout in front of scouts Feb. 12.

Here are some dates of Pro Days coming up for notable college programs.

Of note, Texas and Texas A&M are two schools that have yet to announce a date. For a full list of Pro Days, click or tap for an article from 247sports.com.
