Alabama QB Greg McElroy and TE/FB Preston Dial are scheduled to work out in Tuscaloosa on Tuesday along with South Alabama WR Courtney Smith, according to a report by NFL.com.
McElroy, who is rated as a fifth-round pick by NFLDraftScout.com, had surgery on his throwing hand for an injury suffered at the Senior Bowl and was unable to throw at the scouting combine or at Alabama's pro day. Dial has been bothered by a sports hernia. Undersized to play a traditional tight end role in the NFL, he's viewed as a potential late-round pick as an H-Back prospect.
McElroy worked with Smith at the Senior Bowl, and it will be a vital workout for the raw wideout. Smith was not invited to the combine and is also viewed as a late-round prospect or priority free agent by NFLDraftScout.com. He has excellent size at 6-feet-4 and 223 pounds, and would benefit greatly if he can improve upon his 4.65 40.
