Rodney Landers had to watch his former James Madison teammates as they worked out for pro scouts earlier this month.

On Tuesday, Landers will get a chance to show what he can do.

JMU strength coach Jim Durning said Monday that Landers is scheduled to work out at the school's second pro day, Tuesday morning at Bridgeforth Stadium.

Landers skipped the Dukes' first pro day on March 18, because he's still recovering from the ankle injury he suffered in JMU's FCS semifinal loss to Montana.

Durning said Landers won't run the 40-yard dash or shuttle run on Tuesday.

As a senior, Landers won the Dudley Award, given annually to the best Division I football player in Virginia, and finished second in the voting for the Payton Award, which goes to the best player at the FCS level.

The Dukes' quarterback, he threw for 1,534 yards and 21 touchdowns, and ran for 1,770 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Durning said JMU scheduled the second pro day for Tuesday in part to give Landers the opportunity to audition for NFL scouts.
