Big time for Hillsdale College pro football prospects
Never before have NFL scouts given so much attention to players from Hillsdale College.
The big news of the pre-draft season has of course been OT Jared Veldheer's ascent up the board with mock draft after mock draft tabbing him as a 2nd to 3rd round choice. He was the buzz of Texas vs. The Nation and the

pinnacle of high profile events, the NFL Combine. According to his Draft Journal, the Rams, Chiefs, and Eagles all sent their offensive line coaches to Hillsdale last week for individual workouts.
Today, a couple of other NFL hopefuls get a chance to show their skills. WR AJ Kegg and DE Drew Berube will be on display at Grand Valley's pro day in Allendale, MI. The two will join other GLIAC hopefuls today and then again on Thursday when the attention turns back to Hillsdale where the Chargers will hold their first ever pro day. Both will work out again and Veldheer will do position drills for the league personnel assembled.
Next Monday, more scouting attention comes to Hillsdale for March 22nd's junior day. Reports out of The Dale have surfaced that WR Andre Holmes ran sub 4.4 in winter testing. A 40 like that in front of scouts could really crank his stock. QB Troy Weatherhead is another Charger listed by at least one draft news website as an NFL prospect.
