Seven Athletes attended The WorkOut at Raymond James Stadium
There might not be a ton of foreign players in the NFL, compared to that of the NBA, MLB and the NHL, the numbers are growing and a few more names were added to that list on Monday.
The International Pro Day workout was held at the Buccaneers’ practice facility Monday and scouts from all 32 teams were in attendance.
The athletes working out include three of the top players from Germany’s up-and-coming American football program: David Bada, Jakob Johnson and Moubarak Djeri. Also there will be a former judo competitor who has become one of the best American football players in Brazil, Dural Neto, and one of the top players in Mexican football, Maximo Sanchez. Also attending will be Australian football player Valentine Holmes and UK rugby player Christian Wade.
In recent drafts, the NFL has paid more attention to players from other countries. A few, including Moritz Boehringer and Jordan Mailata, have even been drafted. A good workout today could get another international player’s name called later this month.
