    The NFL Combine is over, but 20 former Horned Frogs still have a shot to impress NFL scouts and analysts at TCU’s Pro Day on Friday.

    Starting at 9 a.m., former Frogs aspiring to play at the NFL level will begin the day in the weight room before athletes will show their skills in the Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility. While Andy Dalton, Marcus Cannon, Wayne Daniels, Jeremy Kerley and Jimmy Young were invited to the NFL Combine, TCU’s Pro Day provides for another chance for TCU’s combine representatives to impress scouts.

    The NFL Draft will be held April 28-30 at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

    Six Frogs were signed to NFL teams following the 2010 NFL Draft. Jerry Hughes was selected in the first round by the Indianapolis Colts 8212; Hughes was the eighth Frog selected in the first round all-time. Daryl Washington was picked up in the second round by the Arizona Cardinals, and Marshall Newhouse, a Super Bowl XLV champion with the Green Bay Packers his rookie season, was taken in the fifth round in 2010. Clint Gresham, Rafael Priest and Nic Richmond all signed 2010 free agent deals with NFL squads in 2010.

    Twelve former Frogs were members of NFL teams in 2010 8212; nine of them active 8212; while TCU’s Sam Baugh and Bob Lilly represent the Frogs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. TCU all-time leading rusher and current New York Jet LaDainian Tomlinson, who holds the NFL single-season record for rushing touchdowns with 31, will likely join Baugh and Lilly in the Hall of Fame after retirement.
