Scouts and various player personnel officials from every NFL team are expected to attend the Texas A&M Pro Day presented by Opportune. After being measured for their official heights and weights, the Aggies will be tested in the vertical jump, 40-yard dash, 5-10-5 short shuttle, long shuttle, broad jump, 225-pound bench press and the L-drill. The Aggies will be wearing special Pro Day apparel designed by adidas.

The 2013 senior class finished their college careers as one of the most successful in school history with 36 wins, including three bowl victories in four chances. Three of Wednesday's participants –Matthews, Manziel and Evans – have already participated in the NFL Combine and will likely not participate in drills for the scouts.

Every player at Pro Day started at least two games during their careers: Matthews (46), Jenkins (27), Evans (26), Manziel (25), Malena (24), Hurd Jr. (19), Hicks (18), Ennis (15), Walker (13), Jacobs (9), Labhart (6), Askew (2).

Included among the group are last year's top two rushers (Manziel with 759 and Malena with 551), top passer (Manziel with 4,114 yards, 37 TDs), top total offense producer (Manziel with 4,873), three of the top four receivers (Evans with 69 catches-1,394 yards-12 TD, Walker with 51-818-5 and Labhart 51-626-8), the team's top four TD producers (Evans with 12, Malena with 11, Manziel with 9 and Labhart with 8), the team leader in pickoffs (Askew with 3 {tie}), and top tackler (Jenkins with 96).
