Monroe works out at Virginia pro-day

Whilst most attention today has been focused on Georgia's pro-day, it was also time for the Virginia prospects to work out for scouts too. Offensive lineman Eugene Monroe will have garnered most of the attention. Charles Davis from has Monroe going to Seattle fourth overall in his latest mock draft, and has him down as the seventh overall prospect in his latest big board. Gil Brandt, also of, reports on the work out:

"Virginia OT Eugene Monroe had a solid workout today in Charlottesville. The 6-foot-5 3/8, 312-pounder kept all of his workout numbers from the combine, but he did position drills and looked very good. Cincinnati Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander, who has been everywhere there has been a tackle, orchestrated the position drills, and two other o-line coaches also were in attendance." - Gil Brandt

It's unclear whether one of those line coaches mentioned was Mike Solari. The Seahawks offensive line guru conducted drills during the combine. Indeed if there weren't any Seahawks representatives present, I wouldn't read too much into it. Monroe completed all drills at the combine. Tim Ruskell and Greg Knapp both attended Georgia's pro-day today, but they had not seen Stafford throw in Indianapolis. Having said that, Monroe didn't name Seattle amongst a list of teams who had scheduled visits with him (a tally that included both St Louis and Kansas City).

Gil Brandt also reports on two other prospects who worked out at the event. Clint Sintim, a linebacker who might be available to the Seahawks in round two and Cedric Peerman, a return specialist.
