23 teams watch Taylor, Watkins at Baylor Pro Day

The official start of the Pro Day season was today with 23 teams traveling to Waco, Texas to watch a handful of former Baylor Bears work out only two days after the annual Scouting Combine shut down.

Baylor's top two prospects -- defensive tackle Phil Taylor and offensive guard Danny Watkins -- stood on their Combine performances, but worked out "extremely well" in positional drills, according to Gil Brandt's sources . Taylor's strength, length and surprising overall athleticism could make him a first round pick. I am currently projecting him to be the Jets' choice with the 30th pick , overall, of the first round. I'm also quite high on Watkins, listing him among my top players on the Big Board.

The news wasn't quite as good for Baylor safety Byron Landor, a 6-0, 212 pound safety who posted 127 tackles this past season -- the most of any non-linebacker in all of the FBS. The JUCO transfer was a surprising non-invite to the Combine despite his production, All-Big-12 hype and this year's relatively poor class of safeties.

Landor was unable to take full advantage of the heavily attended workout, coming in a slower than scouts would like at 4.68 seconds in the 40-yard dash.
