PITTSBURGH — Pro day is the final step in the process of becoming an NFL player that requires input from the players.
After Wednesday’s timing session, the Pitt players will be in wait-and-see mode for the next three weeks as they await their football futures.
That makes the drills performed at pro day even more nerve-wracking, given that it’s the final chance to improve one’s stock — or blow it with a poor performance.
It’s also the end of the road for players at Pitt. The next time they walk through the doors of Pitt’s practice facility, they could do so as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Rams, a team in the CFL, AAF or XFL, or maybe as a teacher or an accountant, depending on how the next few months go.
PSN caught up to most of Pitt’s outgoing seniors and talked about performing under pressure and the process that they hope will lead them to their dreams.
