The 2022 NFL Draft Pro Day circuit gets started this week. Scouts, coaches, and executives from around the NFL will be criss-crossing the United States over the next month to visit schools and watch prospects work out one last time before the draft at the end of April.
This is a chance for some prospects, like Ole Miss QB Matt Corral, LSU WR Derek Stingley Jr, and USC WR Drake London to show the NFL that they’re recovered from injuries that kept them out of the NFL Scouting Combine. It’s also a chance for players like Notre Dame’s Kyle Hamilton to redeem disappointing Combine performances.
We will, of course, be keeping track of where the New York Giants brain trust goes and which players they show the most interest in. It’s far too early in the new regime to know their tendencies, but any hint could be interesting.
But for now, we wanted to give everyone a reference for which schools are holding workouts, and when.
Pro Day schedule
- Kansas State
#Arkansas WR Treylon Burks (6020, 225) Pro Day results:— Jordan Reid (@Jordan_Reid) March 9, 2022
• Bench: 12
• VJ: 35.5"
Elected not to re-run his 40-yard dash time from the Combine (4.55).
That vertical jump by Burks would put him around the 50th percentile for wide receivers in the Mock Draftable database.
- South Alabama
Heavy contingent of NFL teams @TulsaFootball Pro Day, especially to watch offensive linemen Tyler Smith and Chris Paul, wide receiver Josh Johnson and defensive back Travon Fuller @seniorbowl @JimNagy_SB— Aaron Wilson (@AaronWilson_NFL) March 10, 2022
It's #ProDaySZN, and Giants made the trek to Tulsa today because that's what teams do. Assistant GM Brandon Brown is there watching, among others, intriguing OL prospects Tyler Smith and Chris Paul.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) March 10, 2022

#Giants GM Joe Schoen is also here at #UGA pro day. Lots of chatter that they’re interested in RB James Cook.— Taylor Bisciotti (@TaylorBisciotti) March 16, 2022
Which of the Bulldogs’ great prospects is Schoen in town to see? Defensive linemen Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt, and Travon Walker? Linebackers Nakobe Dean and Quay Walker? Safety Lewis Cine? Wide receiver George Pickens? Running back James Cook?
There’s a lot of talent down in Athens. It looks, though, like Cook has the Giants’ attention.
Per source, Giants have at least 2 scouts at the Michigan State Pro Day. RB Kenneth Walker III, one of the top backs in the draft class, is the primary attraction.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) March 16, 2022
- South Carolina State
Michigan LB David OJabo, an expected first-round pick next month, just got hurt at Michigan’s pro day and limped off the field with the help of trainers, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 18, 2022

Nine QB coaches have RSVPed to the @Pitt_FB Pro Day, where @MoveTheSticks’ top QB Kenny Pickett will be throwing: #Falcons, #Panthers, #Lions, #Saints, #Giants, #Eagles, #Seahawks, #Titans, #Commanders.— Aditi Kinkhabwala (@AKinkhabwala) March 21, 2022
Full coverage coming on @nflnetwork!
Hearing Charles Cross was amazing at his pro day today. Did a lot of work at RT—which could benefit a team like the NYG in the top 10. That’s if he makes it to them. Cross is very much in the mix in the top 5 picks.— Matt Miller (@nfldraftscout) March 22, 2022
- Iowa State
- Mississippi State
- San Diego State
- Texas A&M
- Virginia Tech
Multiple New York Giants scouts praised Charles Cross after his Pro Day concluded.— Jon Sokoloff (@JonSokoloff) March 22, 2022
Hearing Giants QB coach Shea Tierney has made the trek to Liberty Pro Day, where Malik Willis is the featured prospect.— Art Stapleton (@art_stapleton) March 22, 2022
Tierney was in Pittsburgh watching Kenny Pickett yesterday.
More evaluation for NYG, who are likely more invested in who wants to move up for QB in Top 10.
- Ohio State
- South Dakota State
Joe Schoen sighting! The Giants’ general manager popped up again today at the Ohio State pro day. OSU always has a lot of prospects and features two of the top receivers in this year’s draft in Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave.
General Managers I’ve seen at Ohio State’s Pro Day:— StaceyDales (@StaceyDales) March 23, 2022
Martin Mayhew - Commanders
Chris Grier - Dolphins
Joe Schoen - Giants
Brian Gutekunst - Packers
It might also be worth noting that 2023 QB CJ Stroud was throwing to his receivers today.
Also never hurts to get a jump on the 2023 draft… https://t.co/lqZjXHDLBw— Dan Duggan (@DDuggan21) March 23, 2022
