Alabama football has several alums that look to put on a show at Thursday’s pro day.

Two defensive linemen, Byron Young and DJ Dale, have a chance to impress NFL teams. Both competed at the NFL Scouting Combine, but things return to a familiar environment. Young and Dale can control how well they test in front of professional teams in Tuscaloosa. Both have been training with Leonard Stephens of Step-By-Step Performance in Birmingham, Ala.

They have been working on explosive get-offs, power punches, edge-bending moves, and initial quickness.

It will be fun to see where both guys wind up in the NFL Draft next month.
