It should be a busy week for both Draft preps and coaching search. There'll be individual workouts on Tuesday. Again, the candidates are likely competing for the #27 and #31 spots. On Wednesday, 36 prospects and reps from 18 teams will gather in East Rutherford for the second group workout. Later in the week, expect more individual workouts, perhaps with those players hoping to go at #3. We might be hearing from Terrence Williams this week. His "School of Flight" summer camp starts Monday in Louisville. Presumably, Rod Thorn will be busy talking to coaching candidates this week...although he's not likely to say.
