Minnesota Football: Three takeaways from the Gophers’ Pro Day

It was a relatively intimate, yet exciting atmosphere at the Gibson-Nagurski Football Complex in Minneapolis on Monday. Scouts, personnel executives, and coaches from 23 NFL teams came to the Twin Cities to evaluate players from Minnesota, Minnesota State-Mankato, Missouri State, North Dakota State, and Concordia University.

Notebook: Bowl-bound Gophers enjoying support, adulation from fans

But he also happens to be an all-but-certain first-round pick in the NFL Draft, meaning Minnesota will have a void on the defensive line during the 2014 season.
