Former Miners were able to showcase their skills in front of NFL scouts on Wednesday in part of UTEP’s pro day.

Specifically, former UTEP lineman Will Hernandez showcased his talents, with tons of scouts watching his drills and vertical jumps.

“I made it clear that I wanted to have my pro day here,” Hernandez said. “They asked me if I wanted to do it in my hometown of Las Vegas. I said no way. Everyone is going to get their fair share. I’m glad I did it.”

The former players who joined Hernandez in pro day included linebacker Alvin Jones, quarterback Zack Greenlee, receiver Brandon Moss, receiver Tyler Batson, lineman Tanner Stallings, linebacker Lawrence Montegut, linebacker Dante Loviolette and defensive back Devin Cockrell.

Teams that sent scouts to the Sun Bowl included the Giants, Lions, Falcons, Dolphins, Packers, Browns, Jaguars, Cowboys and Cardinals.
