Every year professional scouts from, mostly, the Eastern part of the United States assemble teams of the top-rated prospects for the upcoming draft to compete at the East Coast Professional Showcase. 2020, albeit pandemic-stricken, is no different as approximately 150 of the best draft prospects, along with a few standout juniors, descended upon Hoover, Alabama to show their skills to a stadium full of scouts and evaluators.
