It's a huge day on the pro-day calendar, as Sam Darnold is set to throw for NFL teams. The Georgia pro day is complete, and USC's is about to get underway. Here are a few notes from yesterday.

The big news from Florida State's pro day Tuesday was Derwin James not doing position drills, which irked a few people. 

On the other hand, pass rusher Josh Sweat continues to impress. Sweat clocked anywhere from 6.88 to 6.95 in the three-cone and looked good in both defensive line and linebacker drills. The linebacker drills were run by the Baltimore Ravens.

The Cincinnati Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets all had coaches on hand to watch Sweat, who will be working out for the San Francisco 49ers later this week.

After the workout, Sweat interviewed with the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Bucs, who sent their general managers.

Workout/Visits

Arizona State linebacker Christian Sam, who timed as fast as 4.69 at his pro day last week -- an improvement from his combine mark of 4.75 -- is working out for the Houston Texans today. Sam also had dinner with the team last night.

After a very full schedule at NC State's pro day, Nyheim Hines of North Carolina State worked out for the Tampa Bay Bucs yesterday and will be working out for the Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys next week.

Staying with the Dallas Cowboys, we initially reported Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch as being a target for the team during our Senior Bowl coverage. The junior is set to work out for Dallas next week and will be making an official predraft visit to see the Cowboys.

Central Michigan pass rusher Joe Ostman, who crushed his pro-day workout, is on an official visit to see the Los Angeles Rams today.
