Pitt has indefinitely postponed its 2020 Pro Day for senior football players in response to the NFL restricting in-person scouting trips and visits to team facilities, a team spokesperson told Pittsburgh Sports Now on Friday.
Pitt’s pro day had been scheduled for March 18. It was one of the few remaining tentative items still on the Pitt athletics schedule, after the Atlantic Coast Conference canceled all athletic activities for current student athletes on Thursday.
It’s unclear how the NFL plans to proceed with the NFL Draft process without the ability to scout prospects that were not invited to the 2020 NFL Combine.
Teams are permitted to conduct on-line or telephone interviews with players. The NFL Draft is still currently on as scheduled for April 23-25 in Las Vegas.
Pitt seniors such as Saleem Brightwell, Maurice Ffrench, Will Gragg, Nakia Griffin-Stewart, Kylan Johnson, Aaron Mathews, Jim Medure, Jazzee Stocker, Nolan Ulizio and Amir Watts could have participated in the event, in addition to cornerback Dane Jackson, who was Pitt’s lone representative at the NFL Combine.
