Following the most successful season in program history, the 2022 UTSA Pro Day will allow some of their most talented NFL Draft prospects to continue their ascension in this class. When is the UTSA Pro Day? Who should you be watching out for? What can we expect?
When is the UTSA Pro Day in 2022?
- Date: Wednesday, March 9 & Saturday, March 12
- Time: Both 12 PM ET
UTSA prospects will have two opportunities to impress NFL teams during this pro day process. The first UTSA Pro Day, held for all draft-eligible prospects from the school, will be held on Wednesday, March 9. That workout begins at 12 PM ET. Following that, all rising senior prospects will have the opportunity to showcase their skills on Saturday, March 12. Likewise, that workout will also start at 12 PM ET.
Top UTSA NFL Draft prospects working out at pro day
UTSA has had just two prospects selected to the NFL Draft in their young program history. David Morgan II was a sixth-round pick back in 2016. Two years later, Marcus Davenport showcased the ascension of the program as he was selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
Coming off the back of the most successful season in program history, that success is set to be extended in the 2022 NFL Draft. Not only is there the possibility that they equal their total selections in just one class, but there’s also potential that they have three or more prospects hear their name called in Las Vegas. The UTSA Pro Day gives those players one last chance to showcase their skill set and elevate or solidify their 2022 NFL Draft stock. Who should you be watching out for?
Sincere McCormick, RB
Sincere McCormick has been a sensation for UTSA during his three years with the program. From the minute he set foot on the Alamodome field, all he’s done is break records and earn accolades for the program. He heads to the 2022 NFL Draft as a second-team All-American, the program record holder for rushing yards, and Conference USA Offensive Player of the Year.
One of the biggest question marks over McCormick’s NFL outlook is his long speed. While he ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash in high school, there’s an opinion that he doesn’t possess the speed to rip off chunk plays in the NFL. A solid performance in this regard at the 2022 UTSA Pro Day should help negate this concern.
Tariq Woolen, CB
Alongside the 2022 NFL Combine, the UTSA Pro Day will be an important part of Tariq Woolen‘s NFL Draft process. He’s a relatively inexperienced cornerback, having made the full-time switch from wide receiver for the 2020 season. While he’s shown impressive technical development in that time, it’s Woolen’s athletic profile that will cement his stock.
The UTSA cornerback aced the NFL Combine with a 4.26 40-yard dash. He also recorded a 42” vertical jump, leading all cornerbacks. Woolen didn’t attempt the broad jump but has an 11’5″ broad on his résumé. All are elite at the cornerback position. If Woolen repeats these at the 2022 UTSA Pro Day, his stock is going to continue to skyrocket.
Spencer Burford, OT
A somewhat surprising selection to the 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl, Spencer Burford has the opportunity to continue his ascension up NFL Draft boards with a solid athletic performance at the UTSA Pro Day. He’s a good athlete at the position but has seen some question marks raised against his strength. If Burford can test well on the bench press at either the Combine or UTSA Pro Day, that could help his stock.
