  "Pro days are really important to these guys especially, who might not have had the combine invite or being very visible on television week in and week out," NFL agent Greg Linton said. "The scouts that actually go to their games can tell a lot from the film, but the questions they might have had about speed or agility, those are questions that will be left unanswered." Linton's agency, HOF Player Representatives, has more than a dozen prospects for the upcoming draft. The majority of them you've never heard about because they exist on the fringes. A couple have a shot to be drafted in the later rounds, but most are hoping to work their way onto an offseason roster where they at least get a chance to impress on the field. It's definitely a unique environment. NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, after talking to multiple NFL executives, said teams will enter the draft without verifiable measurements for 30-40 percent of their draft board and no medical grade on 15-20 percent of prospects. While every team is scrounging for every bit of available data for the players at the top of their draft board, Linton is pushing to get NFL teams information about his clients, including Southeast Missouri State receiver Kristian Wilkerson, Tarleton State cornerback and return man Prince Robinson, and Middle Tennessee State linebacker Khalil Brooks. - Detroit News
