2015 Pro Day Notes: Wednesday, March 4, 4:35 p.m. (update)

Mississippi State
I'm learning more from the Mississippi State pro-day.

Cornerback Jamerson Love was timed at 4.49 seconds in the 40, while receiver Jameon Lewis was in the 4.57-second range.

Teams came away very impressed with the versatility Preston Smith displayed. He was quick and fast off the edge in defensive line drills and also fluid in linebacker drills.

I'm told Benardrick McKinney looked good in pass-rush drills. If he does land in the latter part of Round 1, those leaving the pro-day believe the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys are teams that could potentially pull the trigger. The surprise team in the mix are the Houston Texans, who are likely to lose Brooks Reed in free agency.

Texas A&M
A little more on cornerback Deshazor Everett. I'm told he looked smooth and very fluid in all the drills besides running faster than many expected. After the workout, Everett met with the Tampa Bay Bucs, Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans.

James Madison
The James Madison pro-day took place yesterday with headliner Dean Marlowe taking part in defensive back drills.

Two prospects of note.

Sage Harold, the team's defensive end who projects to linebacker and a relative of Virginia's Eli Harold, timed under 4.7 seconds in the 40 with some watches having him as fast as 4.63 seconds.

Daniel Brown, the team's leading receiver the past two seasons, timed between 4.52 seconds and 4.58 seconds in the 40 after measuring 6-foor-4.5 and 227 pounds. His othermarks included a 6.88-second time in the three-cone drill and a 4.15-second time in the short shuttle.

Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Purdue headline today's pro-days as information is starting to filter in.

Purdue
Ryan Russell, the Boilermakers' only combine attendee, decided to run the 40 again and timed slightly faster than in Indianapolis. Russell ran 4.70-second time, compared to a hand-held best of 4.71 seconds at the combine. He also ran through both outside linebacker and defensive end drills. Russell, a sleeper of sorts, could end up being selected earlier than people presently project as teams like his size, athleticism and versatility to line-up in different defensive packages.

Skill player Akeem Hunt was very impressive today, timing 4.37 seconds in the 40 and 3.96 seconds in the short shuttle, and posting a vertical jump of 37 1/2 inches and a broad jump of 10-2. During drills, he looked outstanding at catching the ball. Like Corey Grant of Auburn, Hunt is a legitimate triple-threat skill player with the ability to carry the ball around the perimeter, catch the ball out of the backfield, or line up and return kicks or punts. Someone will get a steal in the late rounds or as an undrafted FA with him.

Gabe Holmes, the one-time highly rated tight end who has struggled with injury the past few seasons, timed in the 4.7-second range in the 40, posted a vertical jump of 33 1/2 inches and completed 21 reps on the bench.

Texas A&M
Many were surprised when cornerback Deshazor Everett was not invited to the combine, and he justified that surprise today. His marks included 4.47-second time in the 40, a 6.78-second time in the three-cone drill, a vertical jump of 38 inches and 10-10 in the broad jump. Over the past two days, Everett has met privately with the San Francisco 49ers, Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears.

Mississippi State
Almost 30 teams were on hand for the Mississippi State pro-day, including New York Jets defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers and a number of defensive linecoaches.

Defensive lineman Kaleb Eulls, another combine snub who participated in the Senior Bowl, measured 6-foot-2.5, posted a vertical jump of 28 inches, completed 26 reps on the bench and ran the 40 in times of 5.09 and 5.19 seconds.

Preston Smith and Benardrick McKinney worked out at both defensive line and linebacker drills.

I'm told if there was a surprise of the day it was tight end Malcolm Johnson, who drew rave reviews from scouts. The senior, who posted 28 receptions for 380 yards and three scores in 2014, looked terrific catching the ball and had some drawing comparisons to 9-year veteran Delanie Walker.

I would expect more times from the Mississippi State pro-day shortly.

Auburn
Once the group workout was complete, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick worked out defensive linemen Angelo Blackson and Gabe Wright. Keep an eye on Blackson, who ran in the low 4.9-second range today after timing a hand-held best of 4.98 seconds at the combine. He's a large (6-4.5, 318) athletic tackle who really doesn't get the credit he deserves in part due to the way Auburn used its linemen.

I'm told scouts were very impressed with Sammie Coates' workout today, especially the consistency of his hands, which has been an issue since the season. Both Coates and Cameron Artis-Payne met privately with the Cleveland Browns before the workout.

Mississippi State
Earlier I mentioned Benardrick McKinney meeting with the New York Jets. I also learned defensive lineman Preston Smith is meeting with the Cleveland Browns and four additional teams. Kaleb Eulls, who was one of the bigger combine snubs, will also be meeting with a host of teams.

Northwestern
Receiver Tony Jones did not work out today due to an ankle issue and is expected to workout later this month.

Underrated linebacker Chi Chi Ariguzo was the star of today's pro-day. He weighed in at 228 pounds, ran fast (high 4.6-second range) and looked terrific in drills. A Northwestern coach gushed over Ariguzo's performance to me.

Center/guard Brandon Vitabile ran 5.20/5.10 seconds in the 40 (a 1.84-second 10-yard split was his best), had a 29.5-inch vertical jump, an 8-10 broad and completed 25 reps on the bench. He measured 6-foot-5 and 314 pounds.

Pittsburgh
There was a packed house at Pittsburgh for T.J. Clemmings, who did position drills. I'm told Clemmings has been getting a lot of good feedback from his performance today. To date, he's nearing 10 visits/personal workouts with franchises, and more are expected to be scheduled. As quoted to me, Clemmings' dance card is quite full.

Auburn
As predicted earlier today, running back Corey Grant scorched the track in the 40, running times under 4.3s. As is usually the case, pro-day times are all over the place but the consensus had Grant at 4.27. His other marks were equally competitive, as Grant touched 37 inches in the vertical, 10-7 in the broad and 22reps on the bench.

I'm told the Atlanta Falcons, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots have shown great interest in Grant, who has sealed himself as a late-round pick.

The Patriots have also shown a lot of interest in Auburn's "other" running back, Cameron Artis-Payne. The fast-rising ball-carrier stood on his 40 time from the combine but ran the shuttle and 3-cone today (still awaiting times). During drills, he was quick-footed and caught the ball exceptionally well. Expect Artis-Payne to solidify himself as a top-100 pick.

I'm told other marks include cornerback Jonathon Mincy timing 4.52 in the 40 and defensive lineman Jeff Whitaker completing 41 reps on the bench.

Kevin Colbert of the Pittsburgh Steelers was on hand for the workout.

Northwestern
In keeping with tradition the Wildcats' pro day is late in starting, but I've been told safety Ibraheim Campbell is targeting March 17 as the day he'll run for scouts.

Mississippi State
The Bulldogs' pro day is tomorrow, Wednesday, but I'm already told there will be a crowd on hand for Benardrick McKinney. Nearly a dozen linebacker coaches are expected to watch McKinney, who's been drawing strong interest from the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants,Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and New York Jets, who are meeting with the linebacker for dinner this evening.

Auburn, Pittsburgh and Northwestern head Tuesday's schedule of pro-day workouts.

Auburn
At Auburn, I've been told its doubtful that receiver Sammie Coates or running back Cameron Artis-Payne run the 40 again. One player to watch at this workout is Corey Grant. The speedy ball carrier is likely to get into the low 4.3s in the 40 and could potentially move into the 4.2s. Grant is an explosive open-field runner with return skills and someone who should've received a combine invite.

Pittsburgh
In Pittsburgh, T. J. Clemmings will only participate in position drills. As reported prior to the Combine, insiders believe Clemmings needed good workouts at the Combine and pro day to stay in the first round. His Combine testing marks ranked in the top 10 percent of the offensive linemen, so it's understandable Clemmings does not run again.

Northwestern
Safety Ibraheim Campbell, who did nothing but the bench at the Combine (23 reps), as he was medically excluded due to a left hamstring strain, will not run at Northwestern's pro day today. I'm told they hope to announce during the workout when Campbell will be ready to go.

Minnesota
As initially posted earlier, Maxx Williams sat on his combine numbers at Minnesota's pro day, but as reported by others, he looked good in pass catching drills. And while I don't consider Williams a first-round selection, a number of teams disagree. Last night, I was informed every team between picks 26 through 32, except for the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts, will consider selecting Williams late in Round 1.

Virginia
Virginia running back Kevin Parks jumped well during pro day (39.5-inch vertical, 9-10 broad), did well on the bench (21 reps) and looked good in position drills. Unfortunately his 40 time, which clocked in the low 4.7s, will likely knock Parks out of any late-round consideration he had been receiving. I'm told in recent weeks, Parks had been timing in the mid-4.5s, which makes his performance today even more disappointing.

UT-Chattanooga
Twenty-two teams were on hand for UT-Chattanooga pro-day this morning including directors of college scouting from the New York Jets, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders.

Most all were on hand to watch Davis Tull, who did not disappoint. Tull, who has been struggling with hamstring and shoulder injuries, was first put through a battery of linebacker drills and looked good. Scouts felt his hip turn and pass drops were quick and fluid.

After drills, Tull ran one 40 and timed anywhere between 4.55 seconds to 4.59 seconds. I'm told Tull flipped the workout around, running drills before timing in the 40, in case his bad hamstring acted up, which in fact it did prior to his sprint.

It is of interest that two of the teams on hand, the New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, both need a 3-4 pass-rushing linebacker while the Jacksonville Jaguars are looking for a Bruce Irvin type of player.

Defensive lineman Derrick Lott, who has been ill in recent days, did not take part in the workout and will stand on his combine mark.

Virginia
Getting back to the Virginia pro-day, Max Valles reportedly looked very good in both linebacker and defensive line drills.

Early word has 31 teams on hand for the Virginia Pro Day. Underclassman Max Valles decided to run the 40, and he improved from his Combine mark. Valles was clocked in times which ranged from the high 4.6s to low 4.7s.

The second day of March starts the final leg of the draft process as the pro-day schedule begins. For the next month and a half, we'll bring you real-time results as NFL hopefuls have one final chance to impress potential future employers.

The first day on the pro-day schedule includes schools with big-name prospects but as of posting, few are expected to run.

At Minnesota, I'm told tight end Maxx Williams will sit on his combine numbers and only participate in pass-catching drills. Running back David Cobb won't run today either, but is hoping to schedule a workout later this month. Linebacker Damien Wilson is expected to participate in drills.

At Virginia, I was told Max Valles will also stand on his combine numbers. Entering the Cavaliers' pro-day, the feeling was the same for linebacker Eli Harold. The player to keep an eye on is running back Kevin Parks, a legitimate late-round candidate.

Scouts will also be at another ACC school today as Wake Forest is on the schedule.

The most intriguing pro-day workout today takes place at UT-Chattanooga, which had a pair of defensive prospects attend the combine.

One of them, defensive end/outside linebacker Davis Tull, has been hampered by injury in the offseason but scouts are looking forward to his workout. Despite playing with a torn labrum throughout the 2014 season, Tull finished the year with 18 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks. He also completed 26 reps on the bench last week at the combine. The labrum injury kept him out of the Shrine Game, and is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair the tear on March 5th. Tull came to the combine with a grade-1 hamstring strain and chose not to run the 40 or shuttles, but posted a vertical jump of 42 inches and a broad jump of 11 feet. Today, Tull is expected to run the 40 and the shuttles, plus do position work.

Defensive tackle Derrick Lott, who played exceptionally well at the Shrine Game and completed 30 reps on the bench as well as running a hand-held 40 time of 4.93 seconds at 314 pounds, will also be participating at UT-Chattanooga's pro-day.
