D1's Casey Dick, Marcus Monk and Cedric Cobbs have good Pro Day

ESPN's NFL analyst Chris Mortensen said D1's Casey Dick may have been "short-changed." Mortensen said, "I really think Casey throws better than a lot of the guys who were at the combine... It's not a real strong quarterback class." Also, Marcus Monk from last year's D1 Combine class participated in pass skeleton drills. Monk was drafted in the seventh round by Chicago last year and was subsequently cut by the Bears and New York Giants. Monk may garner enough interest for a second chance in the NFL and be invited for team workouts in April. "He got drafted by the Bears and he just wasn't healthy," Mortensen said. "Playing basketball was big for him. I think he's going to get another chance. I think he'll have some teams that will bring him in in April." Mortensen said Arkansas Coach Bobby Petrino, who watched Monk run during the workout, said "I wish I had him." Former Hog running backs Cedric Cobbs, who has been training at D1 Little Rock and played for the Patriots and Broncos also participated in the Pro Day, looking to make it back in the league.
