MONTGOMERY, Ala. | The National Football League (NFL) draft is just a month away in Nashville, and the Pro Day circuit around college football is in full swing beginning this week.

Alabama State will host their annual Pro Day event at the ASU Football Complex beginning at 3 pm Friday, March 8. The Hornets will send several student-athletes to the field and weight room to show off their skills for NFL scouts including Kurron Ramsey, Dennis Roberts IV, Ishmael Aurismond and Tytus Howard.

Howard, who has competed in the Senior Bowl and the NFL Combine, has seen his draft stock rise; being mentioned as a late first day and early second-day selection.

Since 1959, Alabama State has had 21 players selected in the NFL Draft including Jylan Ware back in 2017 as the seventh round selection of the Oakland Raiders. The highest draft pick to come out of Alabama State was Curtis Green – one of four second round selections – in the 1981 draft to the Detroit Lions with the 46th overall selection. The other three second round selections include Lester Sims (52nd overall – 1972), Eddie Robinson, Jr. (50th overall – 1992) and Tarvaris Jackson (64th overall – 2006).
