More than 100 NFL coaches, general managers and other staff members are expected Wednesday at LSU’s pro day, but they will have a limited view of one of the day’s stars, Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jayden Daniels.

NFL Network reported Daniels, a projected top five pick in next month’s NFL draft, will throw only and will not participate in any other drills. He did not throw at the NFL Scouting Combine earlier this month.

Team officials also have been lured to Baton Rouge to see All-American Malik Nabers and fellow wide receiver Brian Thomas, who led the nation with 17 touchdown receptions. Both are expected to be picked in the first round.

Daniels, 23, completed 72.2 percent of his passes for 3,812 yards with 40 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2023. He also rushed for 1,134 yards and 10 scores.
