Auburn's Pro Day lacks sizzle minus stars

With no Cam Newton, no Nick Fairley and just three prospects among NFLDraftScout.com's top 500 rated players for the 2012 draft, Auburn's Pro Day lacked anything close to the sizzle it provided in 2011.

Nine Tigers and North Alabama running back Wes Holland worked out in front of NFL Scouts.

Brandon Mosley, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 9-rated offensive tackle, was primarily a spectator while choosing to stand on his results from the Scouting Combine. He posted a 5.21-second 40-yard dash, benched 225 pounds 30 times, had a 27-inch vertical, a 103-inch broad jump, a 7.43-second three-cone drill and a 4.78-second short shuttle in Indianapolis.

Long snapper Josh Harris stands a decent chance to get drafted, but managed only 16 bench reps at 225 pounds, although he did post an 11-foot, 5-inch broad jump, according to AL.com.

Free safety Neiko Thorpe enjoyed a strong workout, highlighted by an 11-5 broad jump and a 38-inch vertical. That type of athleticism could help him sneak into the late rounds or at least become a priority free agent.

Other former Tigers who took part in the workout included quarterback Barrett Trotter, linebacker Eltoro Freeman (28 bench reps, 11-5 broad jump) and running back Eric Smith, who was dismissed from the team before last season but was allowed to come back for the school's Pro Day.
