OXFORD, Miss. -- Scouts from 24 NFL teams were on hand Tuesday to watch Jerrell Powe, Jeremiah Masoli and a large group of former Rebels work out at Ole Miss' Pro Day.

The event was held in the Indoor Practice Facility on campus, and official times and results will be posted later this week on nfl.com.

A total of 15 seniors from last year's Rebel squad performed including LaMark Armour, Lionel Breaux, Johnny Brown, Richie Contartesi, Jonathan Cornell, George Helow, Reggie Hicks, Fon Ingram, Ted Laurent, Jeremy McGee, Lawon Scott, Markeith Summers and Allen Walker.

In addition to the 24 scouts, the annual event drew a number of former Ole Miss players back to campus to support their fellow Rebels. Several of those are from the NFL ranks, such as Von  Hutchins, Peria  Jerry, Dexter  McCluster, Michael  Oher and Jamarca  Sanford.

Comments from Jerrell Powe

Process of getting ready for the draft:

“It’s been very tiring, but good. It has been a very good experience and everything that I thought it was going to be. It’s been fun getting to hang out with all the top prospects around the country. I’ve been polishing up on my 40 time, broad jump and vertical jump.  I was in Pensacola for seven weeks and then went down to Hattiesburg for the past two or three weeks. Now that pro day is here, the draft is just right around the corner. This is what I’ve longed for and I am ready.”

On what he was hoping to gain from today:

 “I wanted to polish up my times and jumps that I did at the combine and improve on some areas that I didn’t do as well in as I should have. I also wanted to come back and reunite with my brotherhood from Ole Miss.”

On his draft projections:

“Right now you really don’t know. We have been hearing the second round but we don’t go by that. We go by who likes you and who’s been talking to you. I’m just hoping for the best right now.”

Comments from Jeremiah Masoli

On today’s performance:

“I think it went ok today. I definitely always feel like I could have taken it a little further, but I think I had a great day.”

On what position he will be drafted as:

“Different teams have different answers. Some guys may want to use me in their scheme as a running back or a wildcat guy, and other guys are talking about using me as a quarterback only.  I would love to be a quarterback. I am a quarterback at heart. I am also a football player at heart. I’ll take any position.”
