Thirteen former Blazer players joined prospects from other area schools at UAB's pro day Monday.
  
Offensive tackle Matt McCants, the only participant on hand who was invited to the Scouting Combine last month, stood on his Indianapolis numbers and did not go through the agility testing. He is the No. 8-rated offensive tackle prospect by NFLDraftScout.com and the 84th-rated prospect overall, projected to go in the third round.
  
Other former UAB players who attended the pro day included tight end Jeffery Anderson, cornerback T.J. Ballou, running back Justin Brooks, offensive lineman Greg Calhoun, offensive lineman Terence Edge, wide receiver Frantrell Forrest, defensive tackle Elliott Henigan, defensive lineman D.J. Reese, running back Pat Shed, offensive lineman Darion Smith, cornerback Terrell Springs and tight end Danny Volk.
  
Calhoun lifted the 225-pound bench press 30 times, while Springs posted a 34-inch vertical jump, a 4.26-second 20-yard shuttle and a 9-foot, 9-inch broad jump, according to the school's website.
  
Henigan, the 38th-rated defensive tackle and No. 520 overall prospect, is the only other Blazer rated among the top 750 by NFLDraftScout.com for the 2012 draft.
