Departing Notre Dame seniors will have their Pro Day workouts on March 26. While that means media will travel en mass to see if Manti Te’o can improve his 40 time by one or two tenths of a second, it also gives twelve other former Irish football players a chance to workout in front of NFL scouts.

Here’s the list of guys working out:

Jordan Cowart
Tyler Eifert
John Goodman
Mike Golic Jr.
Kapron Lewis-Moore
Zeke Motta
Theo Riddick
Jamoris Slaughter
Robby Toma
Manti Te’o
Ben Turk
Chris Salvi
Cierre Wood

For the players that had invites to the NFL Scouting Combine, this is another data point they can give teams, especially guys like Kapron Lewis-Moore and Jamoris Slaughter, who are rehabbing serious injuries. While Tyler Eifert might not feel the need to run another 40, you should expect the Irish’s running back duo to try and put up a time that’s a little bit more explosive. The same can be said for Zeke Motta, who needs to show a better top gear.

For guys not invited to Indianapolis, this is their one true shot to get noticed. Bengal Bouts champ Chris Salvi will hope to impress a team, and we’ll get to finally see if John Goodman is the elite speed guy we’ve always been hearing about. While the odds might be long for a few guys working out, for Irish fans curious about measureables, finding out little tidbits like Toma’s true height and Ben Turk’s prodigious bench press ability might make following along fun.

      Manti make sure you take a giant isopure dump just to prior to so you can run faster

        dick- when you TRY to be funny and it shows – you are NOT funny. Sorry to keep saying this, dude, but you’ve lost it.

    Where’s Braxton Cave in this mix? He lives just a few miles away in Mishawaka. I was expecting him to put up big bench press numbers that he skipped at the combine due to injury.

    Manti give it hell. May Harbaugh eat his words.

    Cave is now added to the pro day on another ND site. He wasn’t before. Not sure if it was in error or a late entry.
    Go Irish!

    I have a feeling Goodman will make a serious run in August at making an NFL roster or practice squad. In the mold of a Blair White from MSU who was a key receiver for Peyton Manning a couple years ago. JG has excellent hands. PFA to the Colts maybe….

    Manti Te’o should feel more comfortable in the stress free environment of the ND campus.
    Hopefully, his 40 time will reflect that.

    4.75 for Manti
