Tigers work out for scouts at AU Pro Day

Posted: Updated:
AUBURN UNIVERSITY - Auburn football players tried to impress pro scouts at the Tigers’ Pro Day Tuesday. Many Auburn players are confident headed to the draft.

NFL scouts flooded Auburn's campus trying to see if a former Tiger is the right fit for their team. Running Back Tre Mason didn't do most of the drills.

 “It kind of hurt me that I didn't get to do everything here. Of course, I wanted to. It was smart for me to come out here and work on what they asked of me which is catching the ball out of the backfield,” said Mason.

Similarly, Greg Robinson relied on his combine numbers from last month. He says being the top pick would be incredible.

I guess it is a dream come true. I won't really know until May 8th.”

Out of those that did work out, it was a defensive leader who turned heads.

Dee Ford has says that he is better than Jadeveon Clowney. And he might have proved it with his bench press. Ford did eight more reps than Clowney on the bench, 29 in total.

But, Ford says the comparison with Clowney was overblown.

 “It was just me having fun and him laughing at it. It's nothing personal. We're all good man. We are working,” said Ford.

It seems weird to trot around in compression shorts while scouts watch. But, Ford is find with it.

"Man, I feel like a guy that is trying to get paid millions of dollars,” Ford said. “It ain't nothing that I ain't willing to go through. It was a little awkward at the Senior Bowl. But, I got used to it."
