Eleven Michigan players held their own pro day, Donovan Peoples-Jones made a one-handed catch look too easy
Each year leading up to the NFL Draft, colleges across the country hold pro days.
These are essentially held so that NFL personnel can get a better look at players from certain schools. At places like Michigan, Ohio State, Alabama, USC, Clemson (you get the point), there is plenty of interest from the NFL.
However, thanks to the coronavirus, pro days are essentially being slashed left and right.
So, what did Michigan do? Eleven different Wolverines held their own pro day in Rossford, Ohio. There were no scouts there of course, but each drill was recorded. They will be sent to all 32 NFL teams.
One drill featured a passing session from quarterback Shea Patterson. Patterson was throwing to Wolverine pass-catchers and at one point, threw a pass a bit too high for wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones.
Peoples-Jones made a one-handed catch on the pass, which will certainly get the attention from talent evaluators:

The difficulty of this is understated. Peoples-Jones made this look extremely easy. And while most pass-catchers trying to make it to the NFL can make one-handed catches, this just — again — looked too easy for the 6-foot-2 receiver.
The NFL Draft is still scheduled to take place in Las Vegas from April 23-25.
