HtL is back today with a recap of Notre Dame's Pro Day from Thursday afternoon. A total of 16 former Irish players worked out in the Loftus Center with a representative from every NFL team in attendance. Among those 16 players were Mike Golic Jr. and Robby Toma both of whom are still trying to chase their dreams in the National Football League.

Some quick hit notes from the workouts.

  • Troy Niklas and Stephon Tuitt did not work out as both are nursing injuries.
  • Both TJ Jones and Bennett Jackson worked out but tweaked their hamstrings and sat out the rest of the drills.
  • Tommy Rees completed 32 of 34 passes and posted a 5.08 in the 40-yard dash.
  • Dan Fox and Bennett Jackson posted the best 40's of the day. Fox ran a 4.59 and Jackson got down to 4.40. In interviews following the workout Jackson mentioned that he thinks he'd be a better safety at the next level.

Jack Nolan mentions it at the end of the embedded video below but there will be a new episode of Strong & True coming up on April 7th. The episode will focus on spring practice, this Pro Day, and will be televised by NBC Sports Network.
