UNI Panther running back David Johnson has his focus set squarely on the NFL draft in Chicago in 5 weeks away.

Johnson is projected as a mid-round pick --And today -- Johnson and several teammates looked to improve their stock at the Panthers annual pro day.

Representatives from at least 24 NFL teams showed up at the Cedar Valley SportsPlex in Waterloo to put the Panthers to the test.

Johnson -- along with defensive lineman Xavier Williams and offensive lineman Jack Rummels appear to be getting the most interest -- and those 3 were looking for a good showing today.

"Do you feel like you accomplished what you wanted out of today?"

David: "Yep. Just come out and perform the best I can and show the scouts and coaches that I can keep doing it every day."

 Jack Rummels: "I was happy with the performance. You can't expect that you'll do a personal best on everything, so I'm very happy all around."
