Micah Parsons and Jayson Oweh were the two players who put up eye popping numbers, and are likely first or second round picks. Their pro days set social media ablaze Thursday afternoon.

While potential top round pick Pat Freiermuth did not participate in the testing part of pro day, he did participate in the individual drills. Pittsburgh Steelers tight end coach Alfredo Roberts took Freiermuth through the drills.

The NFL Draft is scheduled for Thursday, April 29-Saturday, May 1. Expect a majority of the players who participated in pro day to have their name called in just over a month in Cleveland, Ohio.
