Former Arizona Wildcats linebacker Paul Magloire Jr. is starting to line up meetings with various NFL teams, including upcoming workouts with the Arizona Cardinals and New York Giants.

Magloire met with the Cardinals, Giants, Indianapolis Colts, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers during Pro Day. All four teams have needs at linebacker or strong safety.

Mock drafts and position rankings consider Magloire to be a fourth round pick. Overall, he is a top-10 outside linebacker and a top-150 player in the draft.

Arizona Cardinals

Larry Foote, inside linebackers coach for the Cardinals, has been working with Magloire for the past three months, serving as the defensive coordinator for the West in the East-West Shrine Game. At Pro Day, Foote spent individual time with Magloire during his workouts as well.

“It’s good having Coach Larry Foote out here from the Cardinals, out here working me out,” Magloire said after his Pro Day. “I had him at the Shrine Game, he was my coach. I feel like we have a really, really good relationship.”

Magloire will work out at the Cardinals’ facilities in Tempe. The Cardinals have pick No. 119 in the 2017 NFL Draft. They also have the No. 77 pick available in the third round.

New York Giants

Holding pick No. 140, the Giants were the first team to make a move on Magloire. This was his first private workout he was able to set up a few weeks ago. He will visit with the Giants on April 7.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are also favoring Magloire heavily, and they have the 125th pick in the NFL Draft.

A pro comparison for Magloire has been Mark Barron, another hybrid safety/linebacker for the Los Angeles Rams, who was originally picked No. 7 overall in the 2012 draft by the Buccaneers.

Indianapolis Colts

The Colts have been showing more interest in Magloire over the last few weeks. The team currently has three fourth round picks, with No. 127, 137, and 144.
