While their former teammates are hitting the field for the beginning of spring practice this week, several former University of Utah football players auditioned for pro scouts Wednesday at the school's pro day.

As reported by the Deseret News' Dirk Facer, 17 former Utes were expected to participate in the event. They include Quade Chappuis, Anthony Denham, Sean Fitzgerald, Phil Hinson, Vyncent Jones, Soni Kinikini, Keith McGill, Jake Murphy, Thretton Palamo, Tenny Palepoi, Trevor Reilly, Jeremiah Tofaeono, Tanqueray Towns, LT Tuipulotu, Michael Walker, Karl Williams and Kelvin York.

According to director of player personnel Fred Whittingham, 24 of the 32 NFL teams were represented.
