Players To Watch During Arizona State’s Pro Day 2024: Can Ro Torrence Boost His Draft Stock?

Ro Torrence headlines a group of Sun Devils prospects looking to boost their draft stock at Arizona State’s 2024 Pro Day.

Arizona State prospects are not the highest up on the 2024 NFL Draft big boards, but they have some intriguing projects that teams may look to take a chance on.

The group is led by Ro Torrence, who had an average 2024 NFL Combine, and while Arizona State didn’t send many prospects to Indianapolis, plenty of scouts will be present for their pro day.

Teams will be looking to collect testing numbers and get a better feel for the Sun Devils’ group, who are looking to get picked up in later rounds.

Arizona State Pro Day 2024

Only one ASU player was invited to the 2024 NFL Combine, displaying the lack of top-end talent leaving the program for the NFL Draft.

It means that the Sun Devils’ Pro Day is even more important for prospects who will use the workout as an opportunity to work in front of NFL scouts.

As some players could be draftable in later rounds, and several names will be useful pickups as undrafted free agents, it is a big day for the Arizona State prospects.

Ro Torrence, Defensive Back

Defensive back Torrence was the only Sun Devil invited to the 2024 NFL Combine and will almost certainly be the highest-drafted Arizona State prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft.

At 6’3” and 208 pounds, Torrence has the required size and length to entice NFL teams. Those who play a lot of press man may be interested in the corner in later rounds.

Torrence’s best film came as a press corner, showing he can disrupt his opponent off the line of scrimmage and then use his toughness and physicality to disrupt at the catch point.

While he is a smooth enough athlete, the ASU DB should look to show sharper movement skills, quicker change of direction, and better hip mobility during drills.

Dashaun Mallory, Defensive Line

Dashaun Mallory had the most productive year of his career in 2023 after transferring from Michigan State and registering 10 tackles for a loss and two sacks.

Listed at 6’1” and 275 pounds, Mallory has the build of an edge at the next level despite taking snaps at DT and DE. That vitality and alignment flexibility will work to the defensive lineman’s advantage. It does mean, however, that his weigh-in at the Pro Day will have even more riding on it.

Currently expected to be a UDFA, Mallory has shown annual growth and proven he can step up in the biggest games. A nine-tackle performance against UCLA in Nov. 2023 showed his tenacity.

While Mallory may not be the type of defensive lineman who puts up elite numbers, he is a solid play against the run and could be a useful free-agent pickup.

Aaron Frost, Offensive Line

A former Nevada transfer in 2022, Aaron Frost has played across the offensive line for both the Wolfpack and Sun Devils. However, he is listed at 6’5” and 310 pounds, lacking some length, and he’s projected to play either guard spot in the future.

Therefore, the Pro Day is essential to Frost’s evaluation. Confirmation of size and measurables will be critical, but the medicals will be even more important. The Sun Devils’ OL tore his ACL in camp and missed the entire 2022 season after being named on the Outland Trophy preseason watchlist.

Currently expected to be a UDFA, how Frost performs and tests at the ASU Pro Day is pivotal to his chances of being drafted.

Other players who could work out during the Arizona State Pro Day include Travion Brown, Josh Carlson, Chris Edmonds, Dee Ford, Dario Longhetto, Joey Ramos, Gio Sanders, Messiah Swinson, Alphonso Taylor, Slater Zellers, and Brady White.
