2012 NFL Draft Pro Day: Syracuse Workout Includes Chandler Jones

Fourteen Syracuse Orange football players competed in the school's NFL pro day in front of NFL scouts on Thursday at Manley Field House, including highly-touted defensive end Chandler Jones.

Jones, expected to be selected in one of the first three rounds of April's 2012 NFL Draft, headlined a crop of several Orange players who had used up their eligibility or already declared for the draft.

Like Jones, tight end Nick Provo, free safety Phillip Thomas and offensive guard Andrew Tiller participated in the pro day after strutting their stuff at the NFL Combine in February.

"This is one of the biggest days we've had in a long while," said SU's assistant athletics director for athletic performance Will Hicks. "All of our kids performed well. The coaches and scouts were very complimentary of how our program is run. All the kids did the drills the right way and were very attentive. It was like they've been there before."

Former Orange punter Robert Long also took part in the festivities. Long last played for Syracuse during the 2010 season, but did not participate in last year's pro day because he was recovering from surgery to remove a brain tumor.
