04/23/14 - Brandon CarterSr/2015, TCU, 5-11, 186 (DS#17 WR)
TCU wide receiver Brandon Carter has been charged with marijuana possession following a traffic stop in Fort Worth. TCU athletic officials on Wednesday did not immediately comment on the arrest of Carter, who has not taken part in spring practices for academic reasons. Fort Worth police say Carter was arrested Tuesday afternoon during a traffic stop and allegedly possessed less than 2 ounces of marijuana. Tarrant County and city jail records had no listing for Carter on Wednesday. Details were not immediately available on an attorney for Carter, who finished the 2012 season with 36 catches for 590 yards and six touchdowns. Carter last November was granted a leave of absence from the Horned Frogs. - AP Sports

04/23/14 - Scotty YoungrSr/2015, Louisiana Tech, 6-2, 221 (DS#999 QB)
Louisiana Tech quarterback Scotty Young has elected to forego his final year of eligibility and end his collegiate football career after obtaining his degree from Louisiana Tech University this summer. School officials say the decision to end his career comes as Young played in seven games making six starts last season for Tech. Young was 87-for-165 for 733 yards in 2013, his lone season eligible to play for the Bulldogs. He completed four touchdown passes and was intercepted twice throughout the year. A native of Denton, Texas, Young transferred to Louisiana Tech after two years at Texas Tech where he did not see any game action. He sat out the 2012 season after transferring to Louisiana Tech due to the NCAA Transfer Rule. - AP Sports

04/23/14 - Nico BrownrSo/2017, Wyoming, 6-2, 212 (DS#57 WR)
Wide receiver Nico Brown is leaving the Wyoming Cowboys for personal reasons. Coach Craig Bohl announced the departure Tuesday. Brown, of Topeka, Kan., appeared in eight games as a redshirt freshman in 2013, primarily on special teams. - AP Sports

04/23/14 - Alden HillrSo/2017, Tennessee, 6-2, 215 (DS#999 FB)
Tennessee running back Alden Hill has decided to transfer to another school. Hill tweeted a link to a post on his Instagram account Tuesday in which he said he had ''decided to move on for my best interest and find a new home.'' Although Hill's Twitter account is unverified, Tennessee coach Butch Jones confirmed via text message that Hill was planning to transfer. In his Instagram post, Hill thanked Tennessee's coaches and fans and said he ''will always remember my time spent at Tennessee, my first true love.'' Hill, who is from Alliance, Ohio, had 10 carries for 58 yards and one touchdown as a redshirt freshman last fall. He closed spring practice this month by rushing for 5 yards on three carries in the Orange & White Game. - AP Sports

04/21/14 - *Calvin PryorJr/2014, Louisville, 5-11, 207 (DS#2 FS)
Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: S Calvin Pryor, Louisville: Given how the Packers' lack of speed was exposed by San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick to end the past two seasons, Thompson is likely to target a speedy, instinctive defender in the early rounds. Thompson has hit on safeties with later picks in past seasons but the specifics of this class and today's focus on the pass is working against him. As the NFL increasingly turns to the pass, safeties have increased their value and unfortunately the 2014 crop isn't equipped to handle the need. Pryor has excellent read and react skills which allow him to close quickly and deliver thunderous hits. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Cody LatimerJr/2014, Indiana, 6-3, 215 (DS#13 WR)
Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: WR Cody Latimer, Indiana: The Packers already boast two of the game's better young receivers in Nelson and Cobb but reinforcements behind the two gifted (but injury-prone) pass-catchers is important after allowing Greg Jennings and James Jones to leave the past two seasons. Latimer is one of the fastest rising prospects in the draft as the former basketball player boasts impressive length, acceleration and natural hands. Latimer is a little rough around the edges but projects as a future starter whose skill-set makes him particularly intriguing to West Coast Offense proponents. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Kelcy QuarlesJr/2014, South Carolina, 6-4, 297 (DS#10 DT)
Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: DT Kelcy Quarles, South Carolina: The Packers re-signed B.J. Raji but only for one year and have shown little urgency in bringing back the 34-year old Ryan Pickett. Quarles doesn't possess the naturally wide frame at 6-foot-4, 297 pounds that Raji (330) and Pickett (340) but holds up well at the point of attack due to his strength and has the quickness to offer some interior pass rush. He'd offer the versatility and talent to fit into Green Bay's rotation. If he were available to the Packers in the third round, he'd make a lot of sense. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Crockett GillmoreSr/2014, Colorado State, 6-6, 260 (DS#7 TE)
Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: TE Crockett Gillmore, Colorado State: With Finley's status up in the air, the Packers will almost certainly look to add a tight end in this draft. Only a first round talent like North Carolina's Eric Ebron offers a skill-set similar to Finley out of the 2014 class (which makes him an intriguing candidate as a "surprise" first round selection for Green Bay) but if the Packers elect to wait until the middle or late rounds, Gillmore offers plenty of upside. The former defensive end was a late injury replacement at the Senior Bowl but impressed once given the opportunity, demonstrating natural hands to pluck passes outside of his frame and the better field speed than his workouts indicated. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Charles Leno, Jr.rSr/2014, Boise State, 6-4, 303 (DS#12 OG)
Five players who should be on the Green Bay Packers' draft radar: OT Charles Leno, Boise State: Given the losses of Evan Dietrich-Smith and Marshall Newhouse, the Packers will be looking for young, athletic offensive linemen to develop. Leno is a lean athletic player whose experience lies on the outside, where he started 36 consecutive games for the Broncos. His developing frame, however, could handle another 10-15 pounds and allow him to move inside, if his future NFL team needed him there. Some scouts, in fact, project him there. Leno has some quiet buzz to him and therefore if the Packers want him, they may have to nab him early on Day Three. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Austin GolsonSo/2017, Mississippi, 6-5, 300 (DS#999 OT)
Report: Ole Miss OL Austin Golson to transfer...A shaky situation on Ole Miss's offensive line has only gotten shakier with the news that likely starting right tackle Austin Golson will reportedly transfer out. Rivals.com first reported the story, with the Clarion-Ledger reporting that Golson would look to transfer closer to his Prattville, Ala., home. Golson later told the paper that he had not made any final decision, but that "my family comes before football." The Clarion-Ledger's Hugh Kellenberger reported that both of Golson's grandfathers are dealing with health issues, and that "seems to be playing a large part in Golson's decision."

Though the Rebels might typically restrict Golson from a transfer to one of Alabama's two SEC West schools -- Auburn is less than 70 miles from Prattville -- the Clarion-Ledger also reported that Ole Miss "is not expected to block such a move" due to Golson's famnily situation, and that Hugh Freeze has OK'd Golson's exploration of transfer options. Golson appeared in 12 games for the Rebels as a true freshman in 2013. A four-star recruit rated among the nation's top 100 overall prospects by the 247Sports composite rankings, Golson was widely expected to become the Rebels' starting right tackle this fall after spending his freshman season at right guard.

Golson's departure will leave the Rebels frighteningly thin along the offensive line, where only two starters return and the team is down to only two scholarship tackles who completed spring practice. Fahn Cooper, a three-star JUCO signee, may now be expected to step in at right tackle. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com

04/21/14 - *Bradley RobyrJr/2014, Ohio State, 5-11, 194 (DS#5 CB)
Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: CB Bradley Roby, Ohio State: While Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher are penciled in as the starting cornerbacks for the Eagles in 2014, Kelly won't pass up the chance to upgrade the position and add a player who projects as a future starter. Roby struggled to meet lofty expectations as a junior in 2013, but he has the physical tools that will likely land him in Round 1 on draft weekend. He has above average speed with smooth hips, footwork and the competitive nature to be dependable vs. the run. Roby's fell asleep at the wheel too much on tape and needs to improve his coverage anticipation, but the athletic traits make him a fit for what the Eagles want. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Jeremiah AttaochuSr/2014, Georgia Tech, 6-3, 252 (DS#5 OLB)
Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, Georgia Tech: One could argue that the Eagles biggest need on draft weekend is an impact pass rusher and Attaochu fits the bill. He has experience in both a 3-4 and 4-3, rushing from a two and three point stance in college, and holds the Georgia Tech record for career sacks (31.5). Attaochu is very active and disruptive, using his athleticism, motor and instincts to win off the edge, collapsing inside or whatever way possible. He's still unrefined in several areas, but has some untapped potential, just turning 21 years old and not playing the sport until high school. If Attaochu is still around in the second round, the Eagles shouldn't pass on him. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Dakota DozierrSr/2014, Furman, 6-4, 313 (DS#5 OG)
Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: OG Dakota Dozier, Furman: The Eagles are set at guard, but Evan Mathis and Todd Herremans aren't getting any younger and a future replacement could be targeted in this year's loaded guard class. Dozier started the last four years at left tackle, but projects best inside where his athleticism translates well to the Eagles blocking scheme. A former high school wrestler, he shows grit on the field with natural body control and flexibility to square up and hold his own through the finish. Dozier needs to continue and get stronger, but has the foot quickness to block on the move and be a mobile wrecking ball, using his pad level and alert style to be successful. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Brandon ColemanrJr/2014, Rutgers, 6-6, 225 (DS#26 WR)
Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: WR Brandon Coleman, Rutgers: As loaded as this class of wide receiver prospects is, it will be tough for the Eagles to find a suitable replacement for DeSean Jackson. And it wouldn't be surprising if they went in a different direction altogether and targeted a bigger target for Kelly's offense like Coleman. He has shown flashes of a Josh Gordon clone with the size and long-striding speed, but he isn't quite the same caliber of athlete and doesn't consistently play up to his size. Coleman was slowed last season due to offseason knee surgery and he's still developing in several areas, but he has the power forward size and promise as a pass-catcher to develop into a NFL starter. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Khairi ForttrJr/2014, California, 6-2, 242 (DS#15 OLB)
Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: LB Khari Fortt, California: Perhaps the biggest need for Philadelphia is finding a versatile linebacker who can rush and drop into pass coverage. Fortt, one of the players who took advantage of the adjusted transfer rules for Penn State players, has the size, strength and speed desired at the position, although his instincts and feel aren't where they need to be right now. His testing numbers will boost his value, but the medicals need to check out and the mental side needs to catch up, two areas that will cause him to slip to the mid-to-late rounds. But nonetheless, he is a good value late with a skill-set to become a Perry Riley type of NFL player. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Brandin CooksJr/2014, Oregon State, 5-10, 189 (DS#3 WR)
Five players who should be on the Kansas City Chiefs' draft radar: WR Brandin Cooks, Oregon State: By expressing so much interest in veteran receivers during free agency, the Chiefs may have indicated the position they see as the club's top priority. This doesn't necessarily mean that selecting a speedy receiver in the first round to pair with established big-bodied wideout Dwayne Bowe is a given. Reid's offense is quite complicated and typically takes receivers at least a year to acclimate. Cooks earned the Biletnikoff Award as the nation's top receiver in former Chargers coach Mike Riley's offense, however, making him perhaps better suited than most to handle the jump. Further, Cooks certainly possesses the agility and speed to turn some of Smith's short passes into long gains. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Austin Seferian-JenkinsJr/2014, Washington, 6-6, 262 (DS#3 TE)
Five players who should be on the Kansas City Chiefs' draft radar: TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Washington: The Chiefs currently lack a second round selection in the 2014 draft as part of the trade with San Francisco to land Smith but Seferian-Jenkins might be an interesting option should the club trade back to recoup some extra picks. Reliable play at tight end is a critical element to Reid's offense. The team invested a third round selection in Travis Kelce a year ago only to see him get hurt in training camp and ultimately have to undergo microfracture surgery. The Chiefs were expecting big things out of Kelce as a rookie and if they are confident that he's on the way towards a full recovery, they can invest elsewhere. If not, selecting a reliable pass-catcher with size and savvy to exploit marginal safety play from AFC West opponents could be a surprisingly high priority. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Jack MewhortrSr/2014, Ohio State, 6-6, 309 (DS#9 OT)
Five players who should be on the Kansas City Chiefs' draft radar: OT Jack Mewhort, Ohio State: With Fisher sliding over from right to left tackle in 2014 the Chiefs are left with third-year pro Donald Stephenson as their current starting option. The former Oklahoma Sooner has 14 career starts already under his belt but much of this was due to injuries to others forcing him onto the field. Mewhort earned All-American honors at left tackle as a senior but has previous experience at left and right guard, as well as the strength, length and aggression to handle duties at strongside tackle. He could potentially step right in at right guard or offer quality depth behind Fisher and Stephenson at tackle. Mewhort's versatility and grit would make him a favorite for a coaching staff led by Reid and includes former NFL offensive linemen Andy Heck and Eugene Chung. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Brock VereenSr/2014, Minnesota, 6-0, 199 (DS#4 SS)
Five players who should be on the Kansas City Chiefs' draft radar: S Brock Vereen, Minnesota: Unfortunately for the Chiefs, the losses in free agency didn't just come on the offensive side of the ball. Kansas City will be looking to replace starting free safety Kendrick Lewis (Houston) and lost depth with veteran Quintin Demps signing with the Giants, as well. Vereen, the younger brother of New England Patriots' running back Shane Vereen, is an intriguing athlete who split time between cornerback and free safety with the Golden Gophers. He's athletic, instinctive and physical and created some buzz for himself with a strong performance at the combine. His lack of ideal size (6-foot, 199 pounds) and ball-skills (four career interceptions) are concerns which could push him outside of the top 100 but at this point in the draft he could prove a steal. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - *Russell BodinerJr/2014, North Carolina, 6-3, 310 (DS#13 OG)
Five players who should be on the Kansas City Chiefs' draft radar: OG Russell Bodine, North Carolina: With the hole at right guard (and center Rodney Hudson's entering the final year of his contract, as well), the Chiefs could invest multiple picks on their offensive line. Bodine possesses the short, squatty and powerful frame so conducive to interior offensive line play and led all participants at the combine with 42 reps on the bench. Bodine uses this power and an aggressive mentality to drive defenders off the ball but isn't particularly nimble, making him best suited to right guard rather than the left side where the Chiefs feature solid third-year pro Jeff Allen. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Jason VerrettSr/2014, TCU, 5-10, 189 (DS#4 CB)
Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: CB Jason Verret, TCU: The Bengals have question marks at cornerback with Leon Hall returning from injury, Pacman Jones on the decline and the enigma known as Dre Kirkpatrick so there is a good chance of Cincinnati's first pick being a corner. The Bengals have spent a considerable amount of time doing their homework on several first-round prospects at the position, especially Verrett. Cincinnati coaches put the TCU corner through his positional drills at his pro day and he also recently visited the organization. Verrett isn't the biggest and recently had shoulder surgery, but his speed, reaction quickness and ballhawking skills translate well to the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Joel BitoniorSr/2014, Nevada, 6-4, 302 (DS#3 OG)
Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: OL Joel Bitonio, Nevada: Cincinnati's starting five on the offensive line is probably already on the roster, but depth is needed across the board, especially after the loss of Anthony Collins. Bitonio is a player that can wear several hats and line up on the edges (where he played in college), but also kick inside if needed. He is barrel-chested with the upper body strength to punch at the point of attack and bury his man, but he needs to show better body control and his lack of length shows up frequently. Bitonio is tenacious, stubborn and sticky as a blocker who is at his best in a phone booth where he can let his mean streak take over -- a reliable second-round draft pick. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Deone BucannonSr/2014, Washington State, 6-1, 211 (DS#2 SS)
Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: SS Deone Bucannon, Washington State: While Reggie Nelson has free safety locked down, strong safety has been a trouble area. Incumbent starter Taylor Mays is the type that you will always look to replace and if a prospect like Bucannon is still on the board in the second or third round, that time might be now. The Washington State product is a tough, physical player who emphatically throws his body around and will pile up the tackles, but needs to stay under control to make consistent stops. Bucannon has stiff hips and joints, but he plays fast with very good play speed, especially downhill, attacking the line of scrimmage. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Ethan WestbrooksSr/2014, West Texas AM, 6-4, 267 (DS#17 DE)
Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: DE Ethan Westbrooks, West Texas A&M: The Bengals drafted Margus Hunt in the second round last year, anticipating the loss of Michael Johnson to free agency this season. And while Cincinnati expects a big jump in Hunt's development in his second season, adding youth depth at pass rusher should still be in the plans on draft weekend. Westbrooks is an intriguing developmental option who will probably cost a mid-round draft pick. He dominated the Division II ranks, flashing impressive pass rush skills for a player at his level. Westbrooks is very unpolished and unrefined, but there is a certain high reward for the coaching staff that can corral his raw talent. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

04/21/14 - Denicos AllenrSr/2014, Michigan State, 5-10, 225 (DS#22 OLB)
Five players who should be on Cincinnati's draft radar: LB Denicos Allen, Michigan State: With James Harrison no longer on the roster, the Bengals will have a new SAM linebacker in 2013 and adding a player like Allen to compete for the job makes sense. He produced consistent numbers the past three seasons as a starter, leading the country's top-rated defense in tackles as a senior. Allen lacks ideal height and plays straight-linish, but his reaction time, play speed and nose for the ball stand out. He plays with a chip on his shoulder and is accustomed to proving doubters wrong, something I expect him to do in the NFL, at the very least on special teams coverages. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
