Seventeen athletes participated in drills, including 12 Miami Hurricanes seniors. UM Pro Day began at noon, shortly after the Miami Hurricanes concluded their fourth spring practice and final session prior to Spring Break. Hurricanes players also entertained the NFL scouts while shooting a Harlem Shake video that is expected to drop soon. Before workouts began, participants underwent physical testing in the weight room for height, weight, vertical jump, broad jump and 225-pound rep test.
