ST. JOSEPH — Football athletes from around the state of Missouri gathered at the Griffon Indoor Sports Complex to showcase their skills in front of NFL scouts. 

In all, 22 different NFL teams were represented at the Pro Day. Of all the participating athletes, eight were from Missouri Western and seven from Northwest Missouri.

At the Pro Day, players ran through skill-specific drills infront of the scouts to help evaluate tangible talents. Among the drills were 225 lbs. bench press, 40-yard dash, shuttle and position specific drills. Comparable to the ones seen at the NFL combine. 

After being evaluated, the players will await calls and potential invites to spring and summer camps to see if they can earn a spot in training camp.

Temperatures are very mild outside right now with most areas in the upper 40s and lower 50s. Today will be another warm and windy day with temperatures climbing into the lower 70s. Today we will have mostly sunny skies with a few clouds building in during the evening hours. Outdoor burning should be avoided today as low humidity and gusty winds continue. Winds will stay breezy over the next few days with wind gusts around 20-30 mph. A more active pattern of weather will settle in for most of this week with our first chance of light rain overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. A better chance for more moderate to heavy rain with possibly a few thunderstorms will move into the area Wednesday night into Thursday with a cold front. That front will stall south of our area late in the week, providing several more chances for rain throughout the rest of the week into the weekend. Temperatures will be a bit cooler after the cold front rolls through with highs back in the 50s.
