They came to watch Bryce Young, but NFL teams were captivated by a former All-American at Alabama’s Pro Day.

He entered the indoor facility 70 pounds lighter at 330, tossing around offensive linemen 10 years younger than him.

The 32-year-old looked incredible in positional workouts, displaying explosion, quick footwork, powerful hands, and a burst in short spaces. Fluker moved his feet very well, and it caught the attention of every NFL team in Tuscaloosa, Ala. As a former three-time BCS National Champion, he wants another opportunity in the pros. Fluker got selected at No. 11 overall in the 2013 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers. He bounced around to several teams, but he wants to prove he can be a mainstay in the league. The Miami Dolphins and Jacksonville Jaguars appeared to be impressed with him. The Jaguars worked him in the drills and scouts from the Dolphins kept their eyes on him. It will be intriguing to see who gives him a chance, but Fluker looks great.
