Without a combine ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft, scouts are relying on program pro days more than ever to collect information regarding draft prospects. Some of these pro days will be available to watch on NFL Network.
Two big-time Pro Days are set to take Tuesday for Ohio State and Alabama, featuring some of the 2021 NFL Draft’s top-end prospects. Quarterback Mac Jones and running back Najee Harris, each projected as likely Day 1 picks, will be featured by the Crimson Tide. Harris intends to participate in most position drills, except for the 40-yard dash. Jones plans to throw for teams in attendance.
The Path to the Draft Pro day coverage with NFL Network will be highlighted by NFL Draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah and analyst Bucky Brooks. NFL analyst Lance Zierlein released a mock draft on Monday that had Jones drafted No. 8 overall to the Carolina Panthers. Harris didn’t make it off of his first-round board, as he projected Clemson’s Travis Etienne to be the first running back drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Overall, Zierlein projected six Alabama prospects to be drafted on Day 1 and one Ohio State prospect.
Ohio State quarterback prospect Justin Fields is expected to be at the school’s Pro Day, but it’s unclear how much of a workout he’ll put in. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told the media on Monday Fields will have an additional workout in April.
You can watch the Pro Day coverage for Alabama and Ohio State on NFL Network with most cable TV subscriptions. If you aren’t around a TV, you can still watch via live stream at NFL.com or on the NFL App, which is available on mobile devices, Apple TV, Fire TV, and Roku. This option still requires a cable login, however. If you don’t have a cable login to access NFL Network for a live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the game.
