Alabama's pro day was mostly about the big men.
Linemen Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker and Jesse Williams were among those working out for NFL officials Wednesday in the Crimson Tide's indoor facility while Barrett Jones did repetitions on the bench press.
Two projected first-round picks watched from the sidelines. Cornerback Dee Milliner had a sling on his right arm after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum following the NFL combine.
Tailback Eddie Lacy still hasn't worked out for NFL teams after injuring a hamstring running the 40 while training in Florida before the combine. He says he'll work out at a future pro day in Tuscaloosa.
Fluker and Warmack also are expected to be first-rounders. They had some big collisions holding a pad for each other in blocking drills.

The man responsible for getting the Alabama football program to the level where they're at is currently in the hospital. Not Nick Saban, but athletic director Mal Moore, the man who hired Saban.

Alabama OG Chance Warmack
Typically, offensive guards are not drafted very early in the first round. In last year’s draft, Stanford guard David DeCastro was thought to be one of the “safest” picks in the entire class, but he fell all the way to the Pittsburgh Steelers with the 24th overall pick.
This year, Alabama’s Chance Warmack has a chance to crack the top ten. Warmack...
Today I was hit up numerous times by scouts attending the pro day of the University of Alabama, not to tell me about DJ Fluker or Chance Warmack but rather an offensive lineman from the University of Alabama Birmingham. Today Chris Hubbard the Offensive Guard/Tackle crushed the Alabama pro day, and blew the socks of several NFL scouts.
