SEATTLE - Sixteen former Washington players will try to impress NFL scouts Thursday at the Dempsey Indoor Facility during the Huskies' annual Pro Day. The players will be measured, go through agility and strength testing, as well as position drills. Even though it's not open to the public, Dawgman.com will be there to capture it all.

Here's the list of players that will be working out Thursday.

2011:
WR Devin Aguilar
LB Cort Dennison
PK Erik Folk
PK Eric Guttorp
WR Jermaine Kearse
OL Senio Kelemete
P Will Mahan
RB Chris Polk
P Kiel Rasp
DB Quinton Richardson
DL Alameda Ta'amu
DL Everrette Thompson

2010:
LB Victor Aiyewa
HB Dorson Boyce
DB Vonzell McDowell

2009:
LB E.J. Savannah

At the beginning of the day, the players height and weight will be measured, as well as various things like hand size, arm length, etc… Then they will go through their strength and jump testing (bench press x 225 pounds, vertical and standing long jump), and then they'll move to the Dempsey Indoor for speed and agility testing (40-yard dash, 20-yard shuttle, 60-yard shuttle, and L-cone test).

After the testing phase is complete, each position will break down and go through individual player workouts with scouts and UW coaches typically running the players through their paces.

Even though ESPN was there live to watch Jake Locker's Pro Day workout, no ESPN cameras will be there to cover Thursday's action. But we will be there to talk to the players afterward, as well as give some analysis on what we saw and hopefully be able to talk to a couple of scouts to give us their thoughts on what they look for during Pro Days like Washington's.
