- 2013 South Carolina Pro Day: There were 32 NFL teams represented at South Carolina Pro Day on March 27. Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis was among the coaches who attended. A total of 18 players worked out on field-turf outdoors in 50 degree weather with 5 mph wind. The scouts who attended enjoyed the well-run pro day. Marcus Lattimore RB (5-11 7/8, 219 pounds) - He did not do any sprints or jumps, but he did go through workout that approved by his medical team, however, Lattimore did catch the football in a stationary position. The entire South Carolina football team and Lattimore's mother gave Lattimore a loud ovation after he completed his final workout.
One scout said that as many pro days he's attended he's never seen a player get applauded for a workout. This kid is one of the nicest people you'll ever come across. His mother and step father are just wonderful people. It's unfortunate that he got hurt. He was a very, very good football player. It looks right now like he's battled all the odds and he's going to win and get a chance to play in the NFL. It's unbelievable what he's accomplished after a devastating injury in his last year at South Carolina. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
