Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, March 23, 2010

Wide receiver Golden Tate will highlight the roster of 14 former Irish football players who will participate at Notre Dame’s Pro Day Tuesday, a Friday press release said.
Eleven other members of the 2009 Irish team — running back James Aldridge, wide receiver Robby Parris, offensive linemen Paul Duncan, Eric Olsen and Sam  Young, defensive lineman Morrice Richardson, linebackers Scott Smith and Toryan Smith, and defensive backs Kyle McCarthy, Sergio Brown and Raeshon McNeil — will also participate in drills at the Guglielmino Athletics Complex and the Loftus Sports Center in preparation for the NFL Draft on April 22.

Former Notre Dame fullback Asaph Schwapp and wide receiver David Grimes will also participate in the Pro Day. Grimes and Schwapp played for the Irish in 2008.

The players will begin the Pro Day at noon with a 40-yard dash, 60-yard shuttle, three-cone drill and agility drills before participating in position-specific drills. Position drills should begin at approximately 1 p.m. and should end at 2:30 p.m.
