FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - North Dakota State football hosted its annual Pro Day Friday. Quarterback Trey Lance was one of three Bison to participate this year.

The sophomore declared for the draft late 2020 and Friday, he likely improved his draft stock.

Lance declared for the draft after just 17 starts in college football but that appears to be all anyone really needed to see. Coming into his Pro Day, the 20-year-old quarterback was already projected to go first round with several mock drafts putting him in the top ten.

30 of the 32 NFL teams were represented at the Pro Day in Fargo. Everyone besides the two Los Angeles teams were in attendance. Several teams sending multiple representatives including General Managers Scott Fitterer (Panthers), Ryan Pace (Bears), Mike Mayock (Raiders), George Paton (Broncos), John Schneider (Seahawks), Joe Douglas (Jets) and Rick Spielman (Vikings). NFL coaches on hand included the Matt Nagy (Bears), Dan Campbell (Lions), and Matt Rhule (Panthers). Rhule and Panthers offensive coordinator Joe Brady were also seen chatting with Lance after the workout.

The Panthers are a popular destination for Lance in several mock drafts.

With no NFL Combine this year and limited access due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Pro Day became Lance’s first real opportunity to perform for these organizations.

Lance put on a show with his mobility, his arm strength and his accuracy Friday. Surely solidifying himself as one of the top quarterbacks in this years draft class. The workout included 66 throws scripted to showcase passes relevant to the offenses run by quarterback-needy clubs, five of which are in the top ten of this years draft. Lance completed 58 of those 66 passes.

Some opinions shared on Twitter from the Pro Day:

Lance opted not to participate in the 40-yard dash, a trend becoming ever more popular by first-round quarterbacks. Plus teams reportedly told Lance’s team that they were more interested in watching him throw, having seen his speed displayed through his college career. It was recently explained in a Sport Illustrated article that Lance wore a GPS tracker during the FCS National Championship and was clocked at running over 21 miles per hour on a 44-yard touchdown run.

Lance’s official measurements from Pro Day:

HT: 6037

WT: 224

Hand: 9 1/8

Arm: 31 1/2

Wing: 76 3/4
