The Alabama Crimson Tide football team is scheduled to make their third visit in four years to the White House on Wednesday to visit with president Barack Obama and celebrate their national title victory, but as a result the team’s 2013 NFL Draft prospects will have to wait a few days to put their skills on display one final time for the NFL scouts.

According to reports, the Crimson Tide’s White House visit has forced the team to move their Pro Day back to March 13.

A number of the top prospects in this year’s draft are members of the Alabama national title team, so the scouts will show up in full force to watch the workouts regardless of the date.

One player to watch closely at Alabama’s Pro Day will be defensive tackle Jesse Williams, who failed to workout at the combine because of injury.
