BATON ROUGE -- LSU’s 2008 senior class will be on display for the NFL scouts and coaches on Monday as the school will host its annual Pro Timing Day starting at 11 a.m. at the football operations building on campus.
Nearly 100 NFL personnel are expected to be on hand for the event, which will feature LSU All-America Herman Johnson, projected first round selection Tyson Jackson as well as linebacker Darry Beckwith and wide receiver Demetrius Byrd. Other members of the 2008 LSU senior class will be joined at the workout by former Tiger standouts Trev Faulk and Bennie Brazell, who are both trying to get back into the NFL.
The players will go through a series of testing with the scouts that includes the 40-yard dash, the 225-bench press, vertical leap, broad jump, shuttle run and the 3-cone drill. The players will also have their measurements in height, weight, hand span and wing span taken.
In addition to the NFL scouts and other personnel on hand, the NFL Network, USA Today along 75 other members of the media will be in attendance to watch the Tigers in action.
Video highlights of all of the day’s action can be seen in the Geaux Zone on LSUsports.net. In addition, LSUsports.net will post each player’s results in the different testing categories.
