FARGO — North Dakota State hosted its annual Pro Day on Friday, March 12, to showcase the program's NFL Draft prospects.

Quarterback Trey Lance, left tackle Dillon Radunz and cornerback Marquise Bridges were the players working out for NFL coaches and executives at Gate City Bank Field at the Fargodome. Lance was measured at 6-foot-3 3/4 and 224 pounds as his official pro day height and weight. Radunz measured at 6-foot-5 1/2 and 301 pounds.

Lance could join former Bison quarterback Carson Wentz as a top-10 NFL Draft pick. The Philadelphia Eagles selected Wentz No. 2 overall in the 2016 draft and has since been traded to the NFL Draft. Lance's pro day workout was televised on the NFL Network.

"This is a pro style quarterback," said NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah at the top of the NFL Network broadcast. "You see him under center, you see him directing traffic up front."

Jeremiah liked the power and zip on Lance's throws, especially on throws to the deep sideline. He added Lance has the biggest arm of a QB prospect in this draft on "pure velocity."

"What you've seen from him gets you excited about where it's headed and where it's going," Jeremiah said, later adding. "I think you are seeing the skill set here."

Lance made 66 throws during his workout.

"It was good. I thought we had a solid day," Lance told NFL Network's Kim Jones shortly after his workout was completed. "I missed a couple, but it wasn't perfect, but definitely enjoyed it. It was a ton fun and super thankful to everyone that came out."

Jeremiah said Lance wasn't perfect, but had an overall strong showing.

"The me, this was all about horsepower," Jeremiah said. "You saw him power the football. Get that first front foot down and then watch the ball just explode out of his hand."

Jeremiah said Lance is "dripping with ability."

"This a guy who can make some special, special throws," said Jeremiah, who added he heard from a friend within the NFL that compared Lance to Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.

Lance went 17-0 as a starter before he declared for the NFL Draft last fall.

"I love football, I treat people the right way and I'm super thankful for everything I've been given," Lance said.
