STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford’s NFL Pro Timing Day will take place Thursday at Siebel Practice Field beginning at approx. 11 a.m. PT. The event will be streamed live on ESPN3.

Ten former Stanford student-athletes are expected to showcase their skills in the weight room and on the field: offensive lineman David Bright, quarterback/long snapper Ryan Burns, linebacker Peter Kalambayi, defensive lineman Eric Cotton, fullback Daniel Marx, defensive lineman Harrison Phillips, tight end Dalton Schultz, defensive back Justin Reid, defensive back Quenton Meeks and long snapper C.J. Keller.

Stanford’s NFL Pro Timing Day operates with a similar format to the NFL Combine held annually in Indianapolis each winter.

The day consists of classroom testing, weight room evaluations, on-field agility drills and football-specific position drills.

In the morning, select participants will begin in the weight room with measurables such as vertical leap, broad jump, flexibility reach and bench press. Afterward, they will participate in the outdoor portion of the event at the Siebel Practice Field. The outdoor drills are open to the public and admission is free.

On the field, select participants will be timed in the 40-yard dash, 20- and 60-yard shuttle, three-cone agility and position-specific drills.
