Thirty NFL teams were represented at Indiana football's annual Pro Day that showcased eight former Hoosiers trying to land a spot on a professional roster.

Offensive lineman Dimitric Camiel, offensive lineman Dan Feeney, defensive tackle Ralph Green, receiver Ricky Jones, fullback/linebacker Clyde Newton, linebacker Marcus Oliver, receiver Mitchell Paige and running back Devine Redding all performed in various drills and exercises in front of the NFL representatives on hand.

Feeney, who various NFL mock drafts have going anywhere from late in the first round to early in the second round, chose to only go through position drills. The others managed to participate in various exercises throughout the morning and into the early afternoon.

"It's a great day for our program," IU head coach Tom Allen said. "It's a great day for these young men. When you're a kid, you have a dream of playing in the NFL. That's what we all do. That's something we have a lot of pride in here."

Allen was pleased to report that all but two NFL teams made their way to Bloomington to check out the Hoosiers in action. Feeney and Redding both participated in the NFL Combine earlier in the year, but the rest needed to take advantage of the opportunity.

"Just a fun day," Allen said. "Our whole coaching staff is out here cheering guys on. We're proud of what we're doing." will be putting out stories and videos on the individual players who participated in the drills in the coming days. Below are unofficial numbers recorded by staff.
