The Big 12 is set to host a Pro Day for every position group between Wednesday and Sunday, with 137 total prospects expected to participate in the event held at the Ford Center in Frisco, Texas.


Quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends will kick off the workouts and drills on Thursday morning from 7:15 a.m. to 10 a.m., with running backs scheduled to work out from 10:15 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Thursday’s workouts will conclude with defensive backs taking the field from 2:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.



The next workouts will occur on Saturday when special teams players take the field from 7:15 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and offensive linemen workout from 9:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Defensive linemen will be the next position group to workout from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., with linebackers concluding the weekend when they workout from 2:45 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.


A total of 17 players from Texas Christian University will participate in the Pro Day, with six of those players previously participating in the NFL’s Draft Combine. 


Of these 17 players, eight play on the offensive side of the ball with seven playing on the defensive side of the ball. The remaining two players only play special teams.


Emani Bailey - RB - 5-foot-9 207 pounds


Bailey received limited touches in the first three years of his collegiate career but had a successful season in his final year as a Horned Frog, finishing with 1,209 rushing yards and 8 touchdowns on 223 carries. While Bailey was not particularly impressive at the NFL Combine, he is still projected to be drafted somewhere in the fifth or sixth round of the draft.


Jaylon Robinson - WR - 5-foot-9 i80 pounds


Robinson spent five years in college playing for the University of Oklahoma, the University of Central Florida, the University of Mississippi, and TCU. During the 2023 season at TCU, he racked up 397 receiving yards and 1 touchdown on 32 receptions. Robinson is currently not expected to be drafted by a team and will likely pursue options as an undrafted free agent.


Warren Thompson - WR - 6-foot-3 205 pounds

Thompson spent five years playing collegiate football at Florida State University, the University of Arkansas, and TCU. In his only season at TCU, he produced 246 receiving yards with 2 touchdowns on19 receptions. Thompson is currently not projected to be drafted but could evaluate his options as an undrafted free agent after the draft.


Curtis Raymond III - TE - 6-foot-4 230 pounds


Raymond played just one season of collegiate football at Cornell University, finishing with 515 yards and 4 touchdowns after 27 receptions. He will likely test his options as an undrafted free agent since he is not currently projected to be drafted.


Jared Wiley - TE - 6-foot-7 260 pounds


Wiley is one of the most intriguing prospects in the NFL Draft, finishing with 520 yards and 8 touchdowns on 47 receptions in his final year at TCU. Wiley had one of the most impressive NFL Combine performances of any tight end in this year’s draft, finishing with a Relative Athletic Score of 9.76.



This performance is expected to help Wiley be drafted somewhere in the fourth or fifth round.


Andrew Coker - OL - 6-foot-7 315 pounds


Coker spent all five years of his collegiate career at TCU, spending time on both the left and right side of the offensive line. Although not overly impressive during the NFL Combine, Coker is still expected to be drafted somewhere in the sixth round due to his versatility.



Brandon Coleman - OL - 6-foot-6 320 pounds


Coleman spent all four years of his career at TCU and was one of the most surprising players during the NFL Combine. He is currently projected to be a guard at the NFL level and received an overall Relative Athletic Score of 9.98, which ranks as the fourth highest of any offensive guard tested.




Coleman is now projected to be drafted in the fifth round by a team looking for help at the guard position.


Willis Patrick - OL - 6-foot-4 338 pounds


Patrick spent six years playing for Angelo State University, Jackson State University, and TCU. He played 978 snaps during the 2023 season for the Horned Frogs, which was the highest snap count for any player on either side of the ball. Patrick is not currently projected to be drafted but he could find his way onto a team as an undrafted free agent.


Tico Brown - DL - 6-foot-2 295 pounds


Brown played his first three years at Central Michigan University before spending one year at both Missouri State University and TCU. During his lone season as a Horned Frog in 2023, Brown contributed 8 total tackles and 1 sack. Brown is not currently projected to be drafted and will likely explore his options as an undrafted free agent.


Rick D'Abreu - DL- 6-foot-2 280 pounds

D'Abreu spent the first four seasons of his career at Eastern Carolina University before spending one season at TCU, where he finished the season with 12 total tackles and just 0.5 sacks. Despite being projected to go undrafted, D'Abreu could still find his way onto a team searching for depth on the defensive line as an undrafted free agent.


Soni Misi - DL- 6-foot-2 330 pounds


Misi spent all three years of his collegiate career as a Horned Frog, with his final season being the most productive of his career. He produced 17 total tackles during the season to go along with 0.5 sacks. Misi is not currently expected to be selected during the draft and his most realistic path to making a team will be as an undrafted free agent.


Jamoi Hodge - LB - 6-foot-2 235 pounds


Hodge spent three seasons with the Horned Frogs, finishing with a career-high 83 total tackles to go along with 3 sacks during the 2023 season. Despite having one of the most productive seasons of his career, it is unlikely Hodge will be selected during the NFL Draft and he will likely try to make a roster as an undrafted free agent.



Millard Bradford - DB - 5-foot-11 190 pounds


Bradford was one of the most surprising prospects to participate in the NFL Combine, posting a 40-yard dash time of 4.42 seconds, which was the second-fastest time among any safety. His athletic abilities, along with posting 54 tackles and two interceptions during the 2023 season, mean that Bradford could be drafted by a team searching for a free safety in the sixth or seventh round.


Josh Newton - Defensive Back - 6-foot 190 pounds


Newton spent the first three seasons of his career at the University of Louisiana Monroe before transferring to TCU for his final two. He racked up a total of 33 tackles and 1 interception during the 2023 season.



As one of the six Horned Frogs selected to participate in the NFL Combine, Newton is currently projected to be selected by a team looking for a nickel corner in the third round.


Mark Perry - DB - 6-foot 215 pounds


Perry played five seasons of collegiate football, with the first three being at the University of Colorado Boulder and the final two coming at TCU. Although he took a slight step back during the 2023 season, Perry still finished the year with 58 total tackles and 1 forced fumble. While Perry is currently projected to be undrafted, he could land on a team searching for safety depth in training camp.


Griffin Kell - K - 6-foot 190 pounds


Kell spent all five seasons of his career as a Horned Frog and increased the number of field goal attempts in every season. Although Kell -just 14 of 21 total attempts on the season, he was a perfect 6 for 6 during the year on attempts that were within 40 yards. Additionally, Kell finished the year making 44 of his 46 extra-point attempts. It is currently unlikely that Kell will be selected in the NFL Draft, but he could compete for a spot on a team if he signs somewhere as an undrafted free agent.


Jordy Sandy - P - 6-foot-3 215 pounds


Sandy spent four years as a Horned Frog, finishing his final year with an average punt distance of 42.2 yards. He had a season-long punt of 57 yards against West Virginia and finished the year with 11 kicks landing inside the opponents’ 20-yard line. As a punter, it is unlikely that Sandy will be selected during the NFL Draft, but he could easily find his way onto a team looking for competition during training camp.


Big 12 Pro Day Has Major Implications for Horned Frogs


Although the TCU Horned Frogs will be sending a total of 17 players to the event, just six of these players are currently projected to be selected in the upcoming NFL Draft. As a result, the Big 12 Pro Day will be an incredibly important event for the remaining 11 players to demonstrate their skills to NFL teams. Showcasing athletic abilities and potential will be the most important part of the event for many of these players, as a team could take a chance on a player who can be molded into a contributing piece in the future.
