Michigan State held its annual Pro Day Tuesday afternoon at the Duffy Daugherty Football Building indoor practice facility. Seventeen former Spartans, including 15 seniors from the 2014 Rose Bowl Championship team, auditioned in front of National Football League scouts in preparations for the upcoming NFL Draft.
Three former Michigan State All-Americans - wide receiver Kirk Gibson, running back Clinton Jones and running back Lorenzo White - along with former Spartan head coach Darryl Rogers are featured on the National Football Foundation's 2014 (Football Bowl Subdivision) ballot for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
While the focus of the NFL Scouting Combine is on the rookie class for the upcoming NFL Draft in May, msuspartans.com also had a chance to visit with several media members from around the country last week in Indianapolis about the state of the Spartan football program after its historic 2013 season in which MSU finished No. 3 in the polls, won a school-record 13 games and defeated Stanford in the Rose Bowl Game.
Adult men (18 and older) are invited to enroll in the ninth-annual Spartan Football Fantasy Camp, scheduled for June 9-10 on the Michigan State campus. The entire Rose Bowl Champion Michigan State coaching staff, led by head coach Mark Dantonio, will conduct offensive and defensive drills and a 7-on-7 scrimmage. | GreenWhiteFantasy.com
