Eight former Youngstown State football players went through on-field tests and drills in front of a group of almost 20 professional scouts on Tuesday at the WATTS. The group of scouts represented 13 NFL organizations and two from the Canadian Football League.

The former Penguins who took part in Tuesday's workout were Alvin Bailey, Stefan Derrick, Billy Nicoe Hurst, Damoun Patterson, Jalyn Powell, Kevin Rader, Justin Spencer and Soloman Warfield. Another former Guin, Martin Ruiz participated in the running times and receiving drills.

Scouts from the following teams were in attendance: Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots, Detroit Lions, Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, New York Jets, New York Giants and Washington Redskins as well as the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Toronto Argonauts of the CFL.

Following physically-testing drills the former Penguins went through position-specific drills with the scouts. The defensive backs held their own drill session, followed by wide receivers and Rader. Spencer, the lone offensive linemen participant, was put through a solid workout by a scout from the New York Giants.
