Connor Halliday prepares to work out for NFL scouts

New, 4 comments

Halliday is healthy enough to throw for NFL teams.

Washington State held its standard pro day for NFL scouts on March 12, but quarterback Connor Halliday still wasn't recovered enough to participate. An extra few weeks has helped and Halliday will instead host a personal pro day on Wednesday.

Halliday has gone through some of the pre-draft motions already. He attended the combine and met with teams while also getting measured. Teams have no shortage of film on him as he threw the ball more than 1,200 times during the last two seasons. The only thing he hasn't done is go through drills for scouts. That will change on Wednesday when he holds a workout at WSU. He will be joined by Vince Mayle, according to Kyle Bonagura of ESPN.

While plenty of teams are in need of a quarterback, the chance see Mayle again might entice a few extra scouts to make the trip. The timing was well done as Washington will hold it's pro day on Thursday, so plenty of scouts will be headed to the Pacific Northwest.

Most projections have Halliday as a late-round selection or an undrafted free agent. Showing that he's recovered from his injury and a good throwing session could help his status. Taking snaps from center could also help his chances as the vast majority of his film is out of the shotgun. Either way, showing off impressive arm talent shouldn't be much of a challenge for Halliday.
