The pro day swing continues in Florida with USF hosting today.

Of the confirmed participants, three Bulls were featured in the 2018 NFL Scouting Combine. Quarterback Quinton Flowers, wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling and defensive lineman Deadrin Senat were all invited to Indianapolis.

Scantling, USF’s leading receiver last season, was the second-fastest wide out at the combine with a 4.37-second 40-yard dash. At 6’4 he could be an intriguing prospect for an NFL team.

Flowers ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any quarterback in the combine with an official 4.63 second time. But due to his size, just under 5’11 at the Combine, Flowers was also asked to do running back drills at the event. He also had some of the best numbers in the three-cone drill and broad jump.

We wrote at the East-West Shrine Game workouts in January that there were some teams that wanted him to think about using his skills as a “slash” type player.

Flowers chose not run at Monday’s pro day.

After posting good numbers in the drills at the combine, does he try his hand at running back drills? Or give scouts one last look at him throwing the ball?

Well, on Monday he chose to throw.

Senat, who likely will be the first bull of the board at the draft will look to keep his stock around the mid rounds or possibly improve it some. USF released a quick clip of him from Monday morning in front of scouts:

Some other notable participants include kicker Emilio Nadelman, linebacker and all time tackling leader Auggie Sanchez, offensive lineman Cameron Ruff, and safety Devin Abraham.

All of these young men along with the rest of the 23 prospects who came to USF’s campus to show what they can do will look to move closer to their NFL dreams.

Former USF standout B.J. Daniels will also be working out trying to find his way back into the NFL as a running back.
