TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - About 14 of the Arizona Wildcats outgoing senior football players participated in Wednesday's NFL Pro Timing Day.

The event is held annually at campuses across the United States to allow NFL scouts to get a closer look at potential candidates for the upcoming draft.

Among the Cats who went through drills including the 40-yard dash, shuttle run, vertical jump and bench press were Austin Hill, Jared Tevis, Steven Gurrola, Mickey Baucus, Fabbians Ebbele and Tra'mayne Bondurant.

Tevis participated despite dislocating his elbow in the Wildcats' Fiesta Bowl loss to Boise State.

Many of the UA alums trained over the past two months at elite performance schools to prepare for Pro Day.

There were no Arizona players selected this year to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine held in mid-February in Indianapolis.

Now the players will wait to see if teams request private workouts as a part of their final evaluation process.

The draft will be held in Chicago over three-days beginning Thursday April 30th.
