The fact that Colbert chose to attend the Texas pro day on Wednesday instead of going to the Florida pro day is a bit of a surprise. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin isn’t reportedly with Colbert at the Texas pro day, however.
According to another report on Twitter, this year’s Texas pro day includes 18 participants with the highest-profile players being wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey, defensive lineman Charles Omenihu, linebacker Gary Johnson and cornerback Kris Boyd, all of whom participated in this year’s scouting combine.
Here’s your list of participants for UT’s Pro Day.
Couple of interesting additions:
• OL Tristan Nickelson (a participant in last year’s Pro Day)
• DB John Bonney (returned to Texas for Pro Day after playing at Texas Tech this season)#HookEm pic.twitter.com/eQUe916wA4
