How many NFL big shots will show up this time to size up the Crimson Tide's probable first-round draft picks?

With the 2012 NFL draft a month away, Alabama will hold its second - and most would say its bigger - pro day Thursday.

Three potential first-round picks who weren't 100 percent healthy on March 7 for the first pro day will work out with a few other former teammates who did participate in the March 7 evaluations.

Running back Trent Richardson, outside linebacker Courtney Upshaw and safety Mark Barron will be the featured attractions today. They are expected to draw a larger crowd of NFL coaches, executives and scouts than the group that attended the previous pro day.

Rumors swirled yesterday than NFL heavyweights were expected to be in town, including Patriots coach Bill Belichik, Redskins coach Mike Shannahan, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and Bears coach Lovie Smith.

In the first Pro Day held on March 7, representatives from 30 of the 32 NFL teams were present to watch Tide NFL hopefuls in combine-like drills and exercises. The only two teams not represented were the Bears and Rams.
